Engineered timber is better for the environment, as the manufacturing process produces less waste. However, unless the door is supplied ready-finished you will have to coat it with paint or a high performance wood stain to weather-proof the surface, and re-treat it on a regular basis.
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.
Stable doors are an increasingly popular choice, particularly for older homes and country cottages. On a sunny day you can open the top half and enjoy the view, while keeping small children and pets secure. French doors and sliding patio doors are ideal for bringing in natural light and creating easy access to your outside space. You can also get large glazed folding doors that open out completely, giving an unobstructed view of the garden.
