My front door is hollow core. The plywood on the exterior facing side was peeling - well, just the outer most layer of that plywood, which still has several layers to it left. I ripped away as much of that loose layer as I could, and am now left with an exterior face that looks really uneven.
I could replace the door, which is 32" wide, although I wouldn't go with pre-hung because I would have to open up the exterior door casing, which I can't even see because it's wrapped in aluminum (that I'd prefer not to mess with). I could find a 32" door without the jamb, but still I am a little nervous about getting a new door to work with my old jamb. I think I have the carpentry skills to do it, but...
I was hoping I could skimcoat the face of the door I have, either with some exterior rated spackle or maybe some appropriate form of bondo, then try to sand it as evenly as possible. What product would you use to skimcoat? Do you recommend sanding techniques to ensure an even face?
Or am I being ridiculous for even considering skimcoating? Should I just get over my nerves and grab a new door?
