These simple operations are followed by the application of a toning lotion, which helps to reactivate the surface layer of varnish and acts as a protection, for windows and shutters, against the atmospheric agents.
But sometimes it is necessary to do more than an intervention, like in the example written on the "Porte & Finestre" magazine of April 2016, "Restoration and Maintenance of an ancient wooden front door", the main entrance of an historical villa in Vicenza, where Tondin used a new dry paint stripping technique.
The treatment allowed the door's original appearance to reemerge, highlighting the wood color and grain.
In this link all the details about the restoration and maintenance of an ancient wooden front door.
