How to Paint an Exterior Door — by Home Repair Tutor
I’m so glad that you’re here with us today on our mission to get your exterior door looking awesome again.
Here’s a thorough video that will walk you through step-by-step on how to get a pro looking paint job for your home’s exterior door. Your door leaves the first impression of your house. And if the paint job looks terrible so will the rest of your home.
We designed this video for homeowners who need to add some curb appeal. Maybe you’re selling your house and need that extra advantage or you hate the current look of your front door. Either way this video is totally going to help you get a pro paint job.
Here are the basic tips:
Scrape & wire brush loose paint
Use a random orbital sander to knockdown uneven paint
Check the moisture level of bare wood
Avoid priming or painting mortises
Apply Rain-X to windows so that paint can easily be removed
Add Floetrol to paint to eliminate brush or roller marks
Prime the entire door
Paint all four sides of the door first then detail work
Paint panels next
Paint the rest of the door working your way from the top to the bottom
Keep an eye all drips during the entire process
Hope this helps you with your project.
