What are the maintenance requirements for your wood products?*
For our wood products, maintenance is contingent upon the level of weather (particularly sun) exposure. Entryways with an adequate overhang may only require maintenance every couple of years. Entryways with no overhang protection may require maintenance multiple times a year. Though Signature Door Inc.’s manufacturing methods are some of the best in the industry, finish topcoat deterioration due to weather exposure is the number one reason for wood entryway failure, and Signature Doors are no exception. Finish topcoats regulate the amount of moisture content in the wood, preventing it from warping, swelling, and bowing due to excessive levels of moisture content or lack thereof. Maintenance of the topcoat is crucial to the longevity of your entryway. For more information about maintenance, see the “Maintenance” section of our “Documentation” page.
*For customers that would like a painted entryway with a guaranteed 10-year warranty despite exposure, we offer an engineered wood product utilizing Signature “SureDoor” construction. See “I don’t have an overhang on my entryway; what solution do you have?” below for more info.
