How do you paint a storm door frame?

Lightly sand the frame with fine wet-dry sandpaper (300 to 500 grit), just enough to roughen the surface. Wash with soap and water, rinse, and let dry. Lightly spray with an exterior paint in a spray can. Let dry, then re-coat.

Subsequently, one may also ask, how do you paint an aluminum storm door?

Sand off any flaked paint with an ultrafine-grit sanding sponge or sandpaper, and wipe off the sanding dust with a rag or sponge. Shake a can of exterior-grade spray-paint to mix the paint. Spray the door lightly, back and forth, overlapping the paint strokes to encourage an even application.

Likewise, how do you refurbish a storm door? Prime with a good oil-based spray paint using thin coats. Let it dry the recommended time. Paint your door with a gloss enamel paint in the color of your choice. (I used one can of paint and one can of primer to paint this door on both the inside and out.)

Then, how do you paint a storm door handle?

Scrape away any loose paint with a stiff brush, then wipe the handle down with alcohol, ammonia, Simple Green, or another similar household cleaner to remove any residual oils. Primer isn't strictly necessary but can help the top coat to stick. Spray with a moderate coat of paint and leave it out in the sun to dry.

What kind of paint do you use on a storm door?

The three paint options for the door are spray paint, latex or enamel. Spray paints work best on metal doors. For best results, sand and primer your metal door before using spray paint. Latex or enamel paints will give better coverage on wood storm doors, although there are varieties of spray paint that will work well.
