Fast-Drying Door Stain Reduces Pre-Finishing Lead Time From Two Days to One

MAUMEE, OHIO (September 10, 2008) ― Time is money on a job site, and no one knows this more than remodelers―especially if the lag time extends to more than a day, holding up other valuable tasks and impacting completion of the job. Now, Therma-Tru Doors makes it possible to stain fiberglass doors in a fraction of the time with the new Same-Day Stain All-in-One Fiberglass Door Finishing Kit.

Therma-Tru’s Same-Day Stain dries in just one day, compared to the 48-hour dry time recommended for traditional stains. This revolutionary stain can be applied in the morning and will be ready for topcoat application by afternoon, resulting in a beautiful, long-lasting finish. The easy-to-apply stain can be rubbed on and blended with a cloth to bring out the rich, grain and texture of the door. Developed exclusively for use with fiberglass doors, the formulation makes it possible to achieve the exact shade desired.

The Same-Day Stain Kit comes complete with all the supplies needed for door finishing, including a 16-oz. can of stain; foam brush; protective gloves; three-inch natural brush for applying stain; two-inch synthetic brush for topcoat application; one staining cloth; two cleaning cloths; mineral spirits, topcoat; two stir sticks and two test samples. User-friendly instructions provide a step-by-step, photo-illustrated guide to properly applying the stain.

Same-Day Stain is available in a choice of seven popular colors to match a home’s décor and architecture including Mahogany, Light Oak, Cherry, English Walnut, Natural Oak, Cedar and Walnut. The stain is designed to resist fading, bleaching and chalking and is backed by a 5-year satisfaction warranty to ensure a durable finish and curb appeal that lasts. Remodelers may also choose to purchase Same-Day Stain separately in gallon, quart or 8-fl.oz. sizes. The topcoat is also offered in a gallon-sized container.

Therma-Tru will provide demonstrations of Same-Day Stain application at the Remodelers Show in booth #821. For more information, visit or call (800) 537-8827.
