Painted Wood Door Process

Wood entrance door 
originally painted

with white latex paint

Painted five years previously, the door paint was chipped and weather worn.
The door casing
next to the brick had never been cocked.

Repair Work
The damaged areas were repaired with spot filler. 
The spot filler used will withstand
many years of exterior weather.  
The spot filler was primed with an oil primer. 
The whole door was sanded. 
As a majority of the original
door paint was in good condition
  there was no need to reprime the whole door.

Latex paint was used because it contracts
and expands with the
seasonal temperature changes. 
Oil paint  was not used because it cracks
with the seasonal temperature change.

The facia and garage doors and the previous
entrance door color were white. 
The white made the house look washed out
