After you have cleaned the door knocker you could replace the lacquer if you prefer but remember that in the future you might have to repeat the process again. You will find that there are other options that could replace the pungent varnish and that would be to wax the metallic door piece. With the wax you don’t have to worry about fingerprints that get left behind. The reason why wax is often recommended is because it doesn’t allow oil to stick to it, thus leaving you with a brand new looking door knocker.
Use at least two coats of good quality exterior grade paint. If your door is engineered and veneered, check first that the paint is suitable for this type of construction. Acrylic latex paint is highly recommended, as it will flex with the timber and help prevent cracking. Choose from matt, satin, semi-gloss or gloss finishes. Allow to dry according to the manufacturer’s instructions – normally between four and six hours.
If you have the extra space and do not mind going out into the weather to get to the house choose a detached garage. The extra space between the house and garage can be used for a patio or even a kitchen garden. From the garage to the home you could also build a nice aesthetically walkway. You will also need to decide if you want a one or two car garage and if you need extra room for storage. If you choose a simple one-car garage, a door company states that you will need a basic space of 12 feet by 24 feet. If you choose a two-car garage you will need to add another 9 feet by 18 feet of space for that extra car. You will need this much space so you can open the doors without scratching or damaging the car doors.
