6 Alternatives ways to Painting your garage door

One of the best ways to improve the external appearance of your home is by painting your garage door. What most people tend to ignore is that the garage door covers a considerable section of your house. That means it is one of the main contributors to the outlook of your home. With that in mind, you need to make sure that it is always at its best. The details below are going to explain to you the six alternative ways that you can paint your garage door and get that appearance you are always yearning for. They include:

Try paint that contrasts with your home

One way that you can paint your garage door is by using paint that distinguishes that of your home, for instance, picking a black color if your walls are white. The idea is always best if you are planning to make your garage door stand out. Some of the best different paint options that you should consider maroon, navy blue, and even jungle green. If you want to get creative, you can go ahead and bright color, then pick a complementary shade to make it darker. The best example for that is painted red on your garage door, then painting green to make it dull. Red and green are complementary colors that if used together, they bring out a dark but perfect finish. You can achieve a similar idea if you use colors that lie next to each other on the color wheel.

Use matching paints

If you are the kind of person who treasures uniformity, you can always go for matching paints. It is one of the simplest ways to pick a hue for your garage door and achieve a perfect finish. Before you go ahead and research how to paint your garage door, you will need to choose the hue that is congruent with the exterior of your door. You can do this by going for the same color on your walls or something slightly different. For instance, if your walls are slate-grey, you can go for light slate-grey and still end up with an incredible look. If someone doesn’t know much about shades, he or she may even fail to notice the disparity. The same goes for silver and light grey.

Use Oily paint for metallic doors

Most people tend to install wooden garage doors, but then some prefer going for metallic doors. If you are one of those people, you should use oily paint for you to end up with a uniform and appealing appearance. Water paint tends to cause inconsistencies, and that is something that you should avoid. Invest in quality oil paint to prevent peeling and numerous inconsistencies that often result from poor quality oil paints and water paints. It is also the only way to ensure your house, in general, looks neat and elegant.

Fix any dents before proceeding

Another way to paint your garage door is to make sure there are no imperfections that are going to interfere with the painting process. These include dents and rust. For dents and other related problems, you will need a garage door repair services to ensure a quick and neat fix. In case it is rust, you should first scrape it off using sandpaper before you apply fresh paint. That is the only way to ensure you don’t end up with an ugly look, which will require you to repaint. You should thus take a closer look at the garage door to ensure that it is in excellent condition before proceeding.

Use neutral color if you have a brick house

Among the things you need to know about a garage door painting is how to pick the right hue if you are dealing with a brick house. Brick walls are hard to match. Any slight mistake can end up ruining the general appearance of your home, and this may call for a repaint. That is why you should avoid going fancy when dealing with a brick wall. You should instead go for neutral colors such as gray, ivory, black, or taupe.

Fill holes before painting

Some garage doors tend to have holes due to various reasons. Painting through the holes is never recommended. You should instead fill the holes with wood filler before painting over them. That is among the ways of painting a garage door that you should never forget. Doing so will ensure you end up with a uniform coat and a perfect finish. It is also the only way to make your garage door to look as good as new.

Those are six alternative ways to painting your garage door that you need to keep in mind if, at all, you want to end up with a perfect finish. The last thing you want is going through the trouble of repainting your garage door due to ignorance. Also, know which color best suits your garage door before you proceed with its application.
