Stain restoration

Hey Guys. Jumped over here from the paint side. Couple of questions on stain restoration. Don't work alot with stain so i'm trying to get a little info. Have a couple of stained doors that we will be looking at in a few days and not sure what the best way to approach this. Homeowner wants the doors re-stained, only exterior sides. One has some scrathes from dogs, thinking to deep to to fix those. Both have 12 small panels of glass.

I'm under the impression when re-staining doors, they must be sanded down to raw, or use a chemical stripper, wash down with lacquer thinner and restain. Or give a lite sanding and just give a coat of spar varnish and call it a day.

What do you guys look for or test for when looking at previously stained work. Any thoughts would be grateful.

If its a solid stain you can clean and use Sikkens Rubbol, anything else you would need to strip or sand first.

I have seen traditional clear finishes and plastic parts on doors melt from the sun's heat. Acid rain, ultraviolet light, and other atmospheric pollutants simply erode clear finishes on fiberglass doors, polished brass and many other outdoor items. The key to minimizing restoration work lies in keeping up with the clear coatings.

When dealing with re-stained doors, you can just sand it and use the same material as on the first coating. Because if you will sue different material it might not match to the first coating.

After wiping down the door thoroughly to remove any dust, I used a sponge brush to apply a Minwax pre-stain conditioner solution to the door surface.

After letting the pre-stain soak in for about 10 minutes I wiped the excess solution off of the door with a rag. The pre-stain solution helps to ensure an even penetration of the stain into the wood surface.

After wiping down the door of any excess pre-stain conditioner, I then used a sponge brush to apply a Minwax stain to the door surface. Immediately after staining the door I wiped it down with a clean and dry rag.

Scrape off the burnt or charred finish and wood. Use a sharp knife or a paint-scraper razor blade in its holder. As in all fine wood work, work with the grain. Don't scrape across the grain. Scrape in the direction of the grain. Use fine sandpaper to smooth the scraped surface. If the burn was deep, you'll need to fill it with plastic wood, which will also need to be stained to match the rest of the wood and sanded. After you've scraped and sanded (and filled-in if needed) the burn, wax your floor as normal.

Before beginning the cleanup process, you required to examine how badly these things damage your home. Use clean water and mild detergent you may even wish to scrub them with a small brush if required. You should repeat whole process until it get totally cleaned.

You can hand sand the doors yourself. This will of course require more work but is more cost efficient than most other solutions. Make sure you clean in between the wood planks and gaps before you sand. After you have finished sanding apply a semi gloss poly to add a great finish.

I agree with maryancell001, you will have to hand sand the doors well for a good result.
