Overhaul your faded garage door using gel stain.
17:06
Here’s an easy way to refinish
17:07
your faded garage door using only three things-
17:11
a power washer, some gel stain, and a paintbrush!
17:15
You’ll start by cleaning the door well
17:17
to remove any grime that settled on it.
17:20
Choose a gel stain carefully and test it out
17:23
on something small first
17:24
before you douse your garage door in it!
17:27
Next, paint it on with a brush,
17:29
going with the grain of the wood for even coverage.

Make sure you do this on a day

where it’s not in direct sunlight,
