I am desperately seeking information regarding Honduran mahogany front doors. Doors are weathered and appear to have a slight mold problem. I have washed the doors with trisodium phosphate. I know they need to have a polyurethane coating. I have run out of arm power to continue (plus, I do not know what I am doing). I have contacted door companies but they all want to sell me a new door. The doors are beautiful but need to be restored. Also, they are rather ornate in design. Any advice on the appropriate people I should contact? Thank you, kindly!!

Just being a do-it-yourselfer, I can't say for sure, but you might try getting in touch with professional wood restorers and refinishers. Anyone who does antique furniture restoration or architectural restoration--perhaps even floor refinishers--might be a good start. I imagine most door installers would continue to just try to sell you a new door.

Hope this helps!

it sounds like you're looking for the same person i'm looking for. there was a company bob visited that restored old moldy and damaged doors. as soon as i find out (or you do) i'll let you know!
