How To Repaint A Garage Door:
To begin the project, start by thoroughly washing the garage doors to ensure that there is to dirt and debris on the surface. Failing to do this risks your final paintwork being uneven or bumpy due to contaminants caught underneath. Allow it dry then key or lightly sand the surface until it is matte before degreasing the garage doors. Once cured, mask off the surrounding area and apply the HD AC primer paint in left to right passes.
The HD/AC primer paint can be applied without the need for a ground coat and comes alongside a wealth of benefits. Firstly, the paint is equipped with UV as standard meaning that the colour will not fade. Moreover, it has an anti-corrosion element built in, so as long as you treat any rust before application, you will not have to worry about this causing a problem in the future.
