Tips For Painting Your Garage Doors

Everyone is always so concerned about the safety and efficiency of the garage doors, that they usually forget that they can have the garage door of their dreams while preserving security and efficiency. If you decided to paint your garage door and don’t want to miss out on important steps, we have prepared this guide for you, so you can get the best results. 

Color and Primer

Of course, the first step in painting a garage door would be to choose a color first. Luckily, we will also give you some tips on the color. First, make sure to keep your horizons wide and look for inspiration through your family, friends, and different websites. One important point when you are looking at the websites is to choose a house that looks like your house. Otherwise, a color that looks beautiful in a cream-colored house may not look as well as a stone wall texture. In addition, don’t do a design just for the sake of following a trend. Trends come and pass in a very fast manner, and you may end up with something you will regret later easily. In addition to the paint, you should have a base primer. Choosing the right primer is also an important step because different door materials need different agents in the primer. You can learn about the details by asking the professionals or by searching on the web.

Clear Your Area

First, set the date of the painting on a cool and not rainy day. You will already have lots of things to do and you wouldn’t want the weather to be a problem too. When the day arrives, start with taking out the items in your garage because you wouldn’t want paint on your stuff, while you are at it, you can even clean the empty garage. After taking out your stuff and creating a clean environment to work in, you should clean your garage door with soap, a sponge, and water. That is for the paint to stick on the surface better. Do not use a power wash for this process because power wash has a detrimental nature, and you may end up harming your door. After thoroughly cleaning the door, make sure to sand it properly. This way, you can get rid of the previous mistakes and create the best surface for the primer. We know that sanding is a hard process many people like to skip, but if you want a perfectly painted garage door, you shouldn’t skip it. 

Fine Touches

Make sure to cover up the necessary spaces like the floor before working and don't start without using tape. Painter’s tape ensures your work looks neat and precise. After covering up the necessary parts, you can put the primer on the door. After the primer, you are set to finish. Most people tend to use spray paint because it is less time-consuming and energy efficient. Through spray, you can reach different angles easily and won’t miss any parts of the garage door. However, we advise you to keep at least two types of brushes for the fine coverage and last touches.
