Has anyone ever paint their garage doors to match the trim?

Recommended Posts

We had a hail storm last year and everything is replaced but the garage doors. The doors that came with the house were sprayed to match the trim. The problem is that I'll have to paint them and are looking for suggestions. Can I do this with a roller or should I have a painter spray them? Also what kind of paint? Thanks for any tips?

We had our trim and doors painted a year or two ago and it turned out nice. I think the guy just used a roller for the garage door and brushed the trim. It looks really good and haven't had any problems with paint pealing or anything.

I believe he used Sherwyn Williams paint.

Good Luck!

They can be repainted,what I would do is give them a light sand,clean them with soilex or dirtex with a sponge use a brush to cut in around the panels and roll the face and the rails also roll into what was cut in to keep the same texture, when that is done raise the door to get the side rails that were behind the weather strip.I would also recomend using a 1/2 nap roller and A quality satin paint.

We are getting new ones that is why I have to paint them. Insurance are paying for them. The old ones are 8 years old.

My house had a badly spray painted purple garage door on it. We painted it white to match the trim.

It was quite easy and never had problems with it rubbing off or peeling.

It actually fell off the tracks resulting in a new door, but thats a whole nother issue smile

Ottertailguy,

The ins. company should replace these to be the same color

as the old ones.

The process used by the garage door manufacture is sprayed on

electronicly, wich should give you many years of use with no

problems, painting them is NOT a good idea. my email is in

my profile, email me if you have any questions

The ins. company is required to replace these as a like, kind and quality product

(I'm not going to try and sell you anything)

    • Oh, you haven’t seen me upset.  After I miss 5 straight - then I get upset! 😁
    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
