Exterior doors in Esher provide security in a home and they also increase the aesthetic appeal and value of a home. For the timber doors to look good for long, you need to carry out maintenance and care procedures every once in a while. To start with, you should inspect all the six sides of the door.

What to look for;

* Large cracks on the door, peeling paint and surface checks and all indications of a door that needs restoration work. Touch the door to test if there is a rough feeling on the door. Reapply the paint as soon as possible to make sure your door maintains its attractive look.

* As you inspect the door, look for damages caused by negative environmental conditions. Sand, blowing dirt, intense light and moisture can damage the appeal of your door if the door is not protected from such conditions.
