Proper Care and Maintenance | Wood Windows and Doors


For optimal performance, new wood products should be finished or painted as soon as possible after installation. Finishing is necessary because by nature, wood is porous. Painting and finishing seals porous surfaces, maintains, protects and enhances the beauty of the product by keeping it less susceptible to debris and easier to clean. Factory painted custom wood products have a low-maintenance finish, but over time will still need to be touched up and refinished as recommended below on page 9. The wood's grain pattern will be slightly pronounced when painted. This is normal and not a defect. See our warranty for details. Keeping wood properly finished is the first step in effective maintenance
