Door Restoration

Prior to undertaking work on each damaged door at Lakeport, historic building craftsman Ronnie Walker conducted a complete assessment, then developed a restoration plan. In all cases, care was taken to retain as much of the original fabric as possible. Consolidants and wood putty were used to repair wood deterioration and damaged surfaces, repairs were made using early techniques, and missing moldings were re-created using hand tools and wood planes from the period in which the house was built. After repairs, surfaces were brought back smooth to accept re-created original faux finishes.
