do they want it re staind,different color,is it just flaking,check out sikkens cetol door and trim, get it prep'd as any good paint job is in the prep,i dont know what all is going on u didnt explain much but sand it down nice,finish with some `150 so there is some scuff to it,two coats of this will get r done,only comes in 4 tones but it is one option,a little more info would get ya a little further

I'd agree with the recommendation of the Sikkens Cetol Window and Door. I do a lot of realtor work where they want things painted and touched up for selling. Had a place where there was natural fir trim - no stain, just a clear top coat - which was really beat up. HO didn't want to pay for a complete refinish so I went through and touched up the scuffed and dinged areas and the Sikkens worked great. Tried about half a dozen other products but none worked as well. I wouldn't hesitate to use this in a complete refinish project.

Strip it down. A chemical stripper works great and doesn't take very long (maybe a few hours) Price out your supplies first...I just had to eat my labor costs on a door I just finished...Lesson learned. Check out the other posts on refinishing. There are a lot of guys on here with tons of knowledge.
