The good news is that you’re not alone! But the not-so-good news is that a lot of people face the exact same problem. And the only way to break out is by tackling that project you’ve been putting off. Here’s some good news! You don’t have to be a super-handy person to get your projects done. You just need the right mindset and a lot of patience. And luckily for you, we’ve got plenty of DIY projects that you can handle this weekend. From painting to patching, and everything in between…
Installing new doors is a long-term project which means that you’ll be doing a lot of little tasks along the way. And what’s great about all of these tasks is that they all help to get you closer to the goal of installing new doors! There are two types of doors you can install: wood doors and metal doors. Wood doors are a lot easier to install, but they require more work because of their design. Metal doors are a lot more durable but require a lot of prep work to ensure that they don’t corrode. Which type of door do you have? Wood doors require much more prep work because they often have decorative features on them. Most doors have to be sanded down and then re-painted. A lot of people also give their doors a sealant treatment to make sure that they don’t fade. And if you have metal doors, they’ll most likely need to be repainted.
