For over thirty-five years Proper Wood Finishing has been finishing and restoring the exterior door that grace the entryways of some of the most elegant homes in the Bay Area. From the top of Nob Hill to the ocean breezes of Monterey, to Mrs. Winchester’s little home in Silicon Valley, our work is prominently on display. We have finished and maintained these works of art from some of the most prestigious local door studios. Fine companies such as Saratoga Door and Window, Extraordinary Doors, Old World/Lieve Art, Manufacturers Glass, Windstar, Southern Lumber, Minton’s Door, and IWP are a few of our clients, as are hundreds of discriminating home owners that proudly feature elegant wooden doors at the entrance to their homes.
When friends and family visit your home, their first impression comes from your front entry. You have already shown your refined taste in choosing a solid wood doorway, but have you maintained your investment in that elegant entry with either a refinish or maintenance coating?
Proper Wood Finishing specializes in the art and science of finishing and restoring high-end exterior woodwork. We have developed finishing processes that will not only enhance the beauty of your investment, but will also allow it to withstand the rigors of the outside world. It does not matter if your entry never sees the light of day or often suffers direct rain. Proper Wood Finishing will restore your door back to its original color and finish with state-of-the-art industrial catalyzed urethanes that will allow it to weather the environment gracefully. There never has, nor will be, an exterior finish that will last forever, yet with the use of modern chemistry and an occasional maintenance coat, your entryway will remain as beautiful as the day it was installed.
