How Can You Renovate Your Garage Door02/23/2014 Back To Blog
Garage door openers and garage door springs are not the only parts of the operational system that get damaged over the years. Your garage door is permanently exposed to elements and is subject to mistreatments, so it would be natural to have some cracks and dents. You don’t have to replace the entire door because of these small problems, but you can renovate it and eliminate the signs of time off the surface. You can have an older garage door that will still be distinguishable in Cave Creek.
Can I Paint my Garage Door on my own?
Of course, you can as long as you make the right preparation and dedicate some time.
- First of all, you must avoid bad weather conditions, like too hot or too cold. It would be better to follow the weather predictions to make sure that it won’t rain the day you want to paint the door because humidity and rain will never let it dry.
- It’s wise to make a complete garage door service prior to the painting and it’s better to let a garage door company in Arizona do it for you.
- Take care of your door before you start painting it. Remove the dust and dirt from the surface and if you detect rust, you must remove it as well. There are special coatings that can be applied for better insulation in the weak points before you start painting the door. You must clean the door well and wait till it is dried completely. While you are waiting you can clean the garage door tracks ensuring dirt and elements have been removed.
- In order to have more effective results and better insulation, you must apply a primer beforehand. You can ask experts which one to choose and after it is dried you can paint the door. Depending on the color, you might need a second coat.
