I have a BTL house.
I fitted a new hardwood front door and frame about 3 years ago.
I painted it with clear yacht varnish. it has been painted twice again since then.
I only started letting it out 15 months ago.
In the meantime, The yacht varnish has flaked off. The now exposed wood has weathered and gone a silvery grey.
Can the greyed wood be restored back to its original colour and re-varnished with clear varnish? if so, how?
Otherwise I am resigned to either:
(a) sanding whole door and frame back down to a varnish free state, and staining with a dark brown stain (to hide the grey wood) and re-varnishing with a clear varnish.
(b) ripping out door and frame to replace with a white UPVC door set to match the rest of the house windows.
