⏩ Can I Paint Behind Garage Door Weather Strips?

When you’re overhauling the exterior paint of your home, your garage is most likely going to be repainted, too.

All garage doors have a weather strip seal bordering the door, and are often cream colored.

Many people ask me, “Can you paint behind my garage door weather strip?” in an effort to avoid having a white strip around the garage door.

In short: no.  Don’t paint the weather strips.

When using top quality, 100% acrylic paints, they contain an ingredient called plasticizers. They’re designed to remain flexible throughout their life span.

Your garage door weather strip has the exact same ingredients, creating an attraction to each other. Essentially, they want to stick to each other.

The last thing you want is to have your garage door stuck because the weather strip and garage door are gluing together.

As a real estate agent I see (and hear) a lot on interior and exterior painting projects. Pinon Painting exceeded my expectations of their work from beginning to end. The crew was friendly, courteous and easy to have on my property for a number of days. I will definitely recommend them to my clients and others. I will use them again for future painting projects. The compliments keep coming in from the neighbors and others!

Mr. Cordier did an exceptional job on a house that was in desperate need of a paint job. We hired Pinon to paint the entire exterior of our home and we were so impressed with the time and effort they put into preparing the house prior to painting it. The quality work shows. We are so proud of our beautiful home now. Thank you, Pinon Painting!
