My shop builds exterior entry doors and historical windows. Iím looking for other types of adhesives for exterior use that other shops are using. Also Ė does anyone offer finishing your doors or do you send them out raw? We have used a product called Epifanes in the past. Are there any other popular products for a good exterior finish?

From contributor D:
I like Epifanes spar varnish, but I think the industry is embracing Sikkens Cetol for doors right now. Itís more user friendly, to me more of a makeup than a strip and cote ordeal. I just listen to my customers, all commercial. Most high end stuff we send unfinished, a good portion of lower end transoms and sashes are primed. We use a number of adhesives, depending on their application.
