Staining Fiberglass Doors

Bill Kidder asked 10 years ago

Can you stain a fiberglass exterior door a light color such as golden oak without it looking like plastic when you are done?

Yes, should not be a problem to stain any color you wish. I have found the higher the sheen the more of a "plastic" look you get. Please know you will need to maintain an annual new coat of varnish on this door. Otherwise, the finish will fail and you will then have to strip and refinish.
