The customer assumed that the front door to their property needed to be replaced.
I was keen to renovate the door as all joints were sound and there were no signs of rot.
Being a 36 inch wide door a replacement of similar design would be in the region of £1000. After removing the various bits attached to the door, a thorough sanding and finishing with 3 coats of light Oak Satin varnish the end result looks very presentable.
I am all for this type of renovation. If we are going to be serious about future natural resources and carbon emissions we are ALL going to have to reduce reuse and recycle. A win win for the customer -they saved at least £1000 .
A win win for the environment – one less door to get rid of and one less door having to be manufactured .
