Door Finishes

If your new internal doors are supplied unfinished, you will want to ensure that you choose a quality finishing product to maintain their long term appearance and performance.

There are numerous brands available on the market and we fear that some are formulated to achieve a low market price rather than quality.

If you are purchasing any unfinished doors from JB Kind, it is imperative that they are sealed on all faces and edges to help protect the guarantee.

Good quality solvent or acrylic finishes may be used, but check that they are suitable for use with timber laminates or veneers.  Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions carefully and avoid over applying the treatment, particularly the first coat.  If in doubt, consult a specialist Decorating Merchant.
