London, UK (PRWEB UK) 21 September 2012

Todd Doors, one of the UK’s leading timber door suppliers, are advising their customers to take greater care of their new wooden door purchases, as sunnier spells of weather could slowly damage the wooden grain, leading to visible deterioration; even permanent damage.

The door suppliers are warning customers that leaving an untreated door exposed to intense sunlight- whether in the summer heat or winter gleam- can often lead to warping, which visibly corrodes the surface and slowly damages the inner-wooden grain. With this in mind, Todd Doors have launched their very own finishing guide, which offers customers useful advice and guidance on how to treat and care for their wooden doors.

The guide can be viewed online, and offers advice on ways to treat both hardened exterior doors as well as beautiful internal doors- suggesting an array of different varnishes and wood stains.
Commenting on the need to protect wooden doors, a spokesperson for Todd doors warns:

“The sun is a doors greatest foe. Leaving an unprotected wooden door exposed to sunlight for long periods of time will invariable result in the door warping. And that could spell trouble as a warped door could become permanently damaged.”

“The best way to protect your door is to use wooden varnishes and/or stains. However it’s important to consider the right type of varnish and/or wood stain before spreading it onto the surface willy-nilly. Our finish guide offers advice on how best to protect your wooden door, in accordance with the finishing guidelines within the conditions of sale.”

With two established showrooms in London and Bournemouth, Todd doors boast one of the largest collections of exterior and interior doors and door furniture in the United Kingdom. Their collection timber doors epitomises the current demand for modern furniture, with the company priding itself on stocking the very latest in door design.
