When it comes to choosing the right color for your garage door, you have a lot of options. Your choice should depend on the overall look and feel of your home’s exterior. To help you make the best decision, our Overhead Door of Akron team has compiled this guide to selecting paint colors for your garage door!
First, take a look at your house. Is it modern or traditional? Bright or muted? Pick a paint color that complements the exterior of your home. If you have a bright, vibrant house, don’t hesitate to make a statement with your garage door and opt for something like red, yellow, or orange. Choose colors like blue, gray, or even black for more muted homes.
Remember, the color you choose should complement and enhance the existing color scheme of your home. Consider the overall scheme before deciding on a particular shade. You can even consult with one of our team members for more help in selecting the right paint color for your garage door.
Once you’ve chosen a paint color, it’s time to prep and paint your garage door. Before getting started, clean your door well and allow it to dry completely. Use a mild detergent like dish soap or laundry detergent on the door’s surface. Be sure to use a stiff brush or pressure washer to remove any dirt or debris that has built up over time. Then, sand the surface with fine-grit sandpaper and apply a coat of primer.
Finally, you can start painting once the door is prepped and primed. Using a brush or roller, apply two coats of your chosen paint. Allow each coat to dry completely before applying the next one. Once the paint has dried, inspect it for any imperfections or inconsistencies. If you find any, go over them with a brush or roller.
Remember that the color of your garage door should reflect your style and aesthetic. You can create a bright, beautiful entrance to your home with proper preparation and painting techniques.
