If you are looking into repairing the door yourself, you could use these instructions. Remove the doors from the hinges; use a drill/driver to remove the screws holding the hinges to the jambs. Place the doors across sawhorses. You don’t need to remove the hardware or hinges.
Scrub the rotten area gently with a wire brush to remove loose particles and wood fibers. Brush out the remaining particles with a paintbrush. Mix the resin glue with water according to the manufacturer’s directions. Apply the glue to the rotten area. Completely saturate the rotten area with the glue. The glue will penetrate into open pores and harden. Allow it to soak in for five minutes, and then scrape the glue off the door with a flat stick.
Wait overnight for the glue to dry. Turn the door over, and do the other side. Sand the door thoroughly using an orbital sander with 100-grit sandpaper. Sand off all the previous finish on the side of the door that you’ve been working on. You can do both sides if needed, or leave one side as-is if there is no rot on that side.
Apply a heavy coat of oil stain to the door on the side or sides. Use a sponge to apply the stain. Allow it to dry for 15 minutes, and wipe it off with a cloth. Wait overnight. Apply another coat of oil, and wipe it off immediately. Rehang the door on the jambs.
Apply additional coats of oil stain every six months to protect the door. For a bit more gloss, apply paste wax to the door, or use your choice of polyurethane, varnish or shellac. Remember that you can call Locksmith for any door related problems, call Locksmiths Hamilton Team 24/7!
