Dr. Jeorge Valvus called me from an advertisement from a Bing advertisement campaign. Dr. Valvus home is under 30-year but he had not kept on the maintenance for his home. Today job was to re-paint his second floor patio door frame. The door needed re-painting but the frame needed complete re-scraping, priming and painting.

This post shows the five steps to repainting the patio french door.

Step 1: Look at the door damage, the door needed re-painted only, the exterior door jamb were in bad shape and will need scraping. Fig.1 shows the application of the blue tape around the perimeter of the door.
