CrossWorks Carpentry.."Where Every Nail Has a Purpose"
This project involves removing the original 7 foot door along with the storm door and installing a new Full Light Simpson Fir door from Brosco and an Anderson custom sized storm door. I also have to preserve the interior trim to be re-installed, stain the door frame to match existing interior trim and paint the door and exterior portion of the frame first with a oil based primer and then two coats of latex finish paint. The interior of the door will get 3 coats of semi-gloss poly.
