⏩ Can You Paint Security Doors?

Painting Security Doors

In short, yes, we’re able to paint security doors. The powder coat finish is designed to be durable, but it fades quickly with our blue skies and harsh sun. If you are shopping for a security door, splurge for the hammered finish. It’s a little more expensive, but it lasts much longer.

1. Sand It And Wipe It Down

Hand sand it hard to scuff and dull the surface. We need to make sure we get every side, in every nook and cranny. The next step is to wipe it down with a solvent to get any hand oils off or anything else that might have been splashed or spilled on there.

2. Mask the Door and Remove the Doorknob

Next, we’ll mask the door. Most of the job painting a security door or iron rail is masking. Next, we’ll take off the deadbolts and doorknob to make sure we get every bit of the door covered with the paint. Our goal is to make it look as good as it did when you first bought it.

3. Rescreen the Security Door

Sometimes, security doors have screen frames around it. If we’re going to paint the screen frame it’s attached to, we need to remove the screen since tape doesn’t stick to the screen at all. Then, we’ll need to re-screen the door. If the little bit of aluminum shows, and you want it to match the rest of your paint, we’ll need to remove the screen. In rare cases, we may need to buy new screen, and new webbing to attach it.

If your door is just a screen door, we highly recommend buying a new door. If we attempt to paint a screen door, it’ll just become very sticky from our high quality paints – and you don’t want that.

If you’ve got questions about whether or not we can paint your security door, give us a call! We’d be happy to come out and take a look for you, and give you a free estimate.

Great work – great crew – Bill was excellent!! Jimmy checked project daily. Very particular on every detail of the project. I would recommend your company to paint the White House in D.C.

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!
