The quick and simple answer to this question is yes, you can definitely spray paint your garage door - be it timber, metal, composite or upvc. However, the major concern of most home or property owners about a painted finish is whether it’ll become vulnerable to wear and tear or resist it. Will the paint easily peel off at the slightest provocation or will it stand up to abrasion? The questions goes on and on. The answer to the questions showing concerns about the longevity of a painted finish depends largely on the quality of the application.
For a successful and effective spray painting project, there’s the need to prepare the surface. There some materials that’ll require priming, be it a special primer or a thinned version of the paint. There are also some surfaces that’ll need some light sanding. Overall, the primary aim of preparation is to provide a clean and ideal surface for the paint to bond to. This is the most important factor that determines whether the finish is going to last or not.
Painting your garage door can either be done as a DIY task or you can probably hire the services of a professional. To paint the garage door yourself, you can’t buy the same equipment as a professional firm, but you can as well use a brush. This option will leave brush marks especially on metal and upvc garage doors which makes it not so appropriate if you want to have a smooth and even finish. Professional companies are highly recommended for this type of project as they possess the experience and knowledge and skills required to deliver a top quality job that’ll help obliterate all concerns you might have about its longevity.
