Picking a color for your garage door is the first job our garage door painters are tasked with. Choosing a color may sound like a simple task, but many layers go into it. For example, you have to evaluate the current exterior’s color theme, the surrounding landscape, and the color schemes in your neighborhood to pick a color that will be the most suitable for your property.

With our vast experience in garage door painting and know-how of the current trends and demands, we can help you choose a color that will enhance your property’s look in the best way possible.

Here are some of the steps we take during the garage door painting process:

  • Evaluating the current paint
  • Discussing garage door painting ideas
  • Gathering tools and materials required
  • Preparing area
  • Painting panels and perimeter
  • Painting frame and trims
  • Conducting final touch-ups
  • Final walkthrough

PAINTING DIFFERENT MATERIALS

Some of the most common garage door materials include wood, fiberglass, steel, and aluminum. Depending on which materials are installed, the color schemes and maintenance needs will vary significantly. For example, when dealing with a wooden door, our experts will use a finer grit of sandpaper to ensure that your wood doesn’t get damaged when removing old paint. In contrast, repainting the steel garage door would mean removing rust from it before painting to ensure that the new color looks as good as possible.

PAINTING A WOODEN GARAGE DOOR

A wooden garage door requires the removal of bubbled or chipped paint, dust, and debris. After removing these, our garage door painters will use sandpaper to smooth out rough edges. After sanding it down, we will wash the garage door to remove all excess particles and debris that may prevent your door from looking smooth. Once all these processes have been followed, our team will proceed with the painting.

PAINTING A FIBERGLASS DOOR

Unlike other materials, fiberglass does not require a primer or even a topcoat unless you’re using spray paint. However, your fiberglass garage door can’t be painted in humid, hot, or cold weather. The humidity level should be below 60% and the temperature between 65-90°F for the paint to sit well, dry completely, and provide a fine finish. All steps will be the same for the fiberglass garage door as the wooden garage door.

PAINTING A STEEL GARAGE DOOR

When you schedule our garage door painting services for a steel door, our team may need to remove rust before proceeding with the painting process. After using a wire brush to remove the rust, our painters will use heavy grit sandpaper to remove the remaining particles and then wash the door to rid it of any debris or oils. It is crucial to remember that your steel door will need two layers of primer for rust prevention, and the acrylic paint recommended for such garage door types typically takes 12 hours to dry completely.
