Another common question we are often asked is, “Can I paint my garage door?” and “What type of paint should I use on my garage door?” – First of all, Yes! You can definitely paint your garage door! All of our steel doors can be painted BUT we strongly recommend using a quality, ACRYLIC latex paint only! Do not use an oil based paint! Using an oil based paint will create a chemical reaction causing the original finish to bubble up and peel off! And you do not want that! Also, if you are painting a dark color consider a thermal reflective paint to keep your door from getting too hot. Dark colors absorb heat and a thermal reflective paint can help keep the temperature down. (*Source: Clopay Garage Doors)
With Acrylic, latex paint, there is no prep work needed other than to make sure the door is clean and dry before painting. And, there is no change in the section warranty, as long as the above guidelines are followed.

We carry a large variety of garage doors in many finishes and colors that will compliment any home so there is no need for any extra work on your end.
