I have hardwood framed Everworst aluminium doors and windows. The wood
appears to be coated with a coloured water based stuff, rather than
varnish, which is flaking in places and has rubbed off the door sills.
Allowing for my biased description, does it sound as though I have
identified the stuff correctly? Must I re-treat with similar water
nased stuff? Can I use a non-water based solvent treatment? If I don't
use similar stuff must I remove it before re-treating with something
different? My prejudice against the water based treatments is based on
my opinion that they seem to sit on the wood rather than soak into it.
What would you use and why?
