Products for Treating Faux Wood

As correct surface preparation helps ensure proper application and durability, the first step in finishing or refinishing faux wood doors, moldings or decks is to identify the substrate: plastic, laminate, fiberglass or composite. Also, keep an eye out for hardwood veneer or a previous faux finish over real wood that could be masquerading as fake. While faux wood is manufactured to be fairly scratch-resistant, it’s always wise to protect your investment from the wear and tear of everyday life.
