Q&A: Painting Exterior Door
We receive great questions from our customers. We'll share those we think may help other customers who have similar questions.
My husband and I recently purchased a ready-to-paint fiberglass door and were wondering about the painting options - before deciding to purchase a new door we had picked up some ultra premium exterior latex paint for our old door. Do we have to get an oil based exterior paint for our new door? Or will the exterior paint we had previously selected be appropriate?
The latex paint should work fine, but our door has the best adhesion performance with oil based paints, so we recommend oil based paint. Please visit our resources page for exterior door installation instructions for guidance.
