Your front door says a lot about your home. For many Nashvillians, a beautiful hardwood entry door is the mark of a well-loved home, a welcoming front porch, and a point of historic pride. Depending on your home’s age and exposure, however, the elements can wreak havoc on the fit and finish of your entry door. If your exterior doors are starting to show some wear, look a little shabby, or hang a little more loosely than you’d like, then it’s time to get to work on refinishing your front door. While it may be tempting to chuck the old door into the trash and buy a replacement, let’s take a moment to consider whether or not that beautiful antique door can be returned to its original glory. While inexpensive options exist, you’ll miss the look and authenticity of the real deal. It’s also worth noting that a new, custom hardwood door can set you back thousands of dollars.
