What kind of paint do you use on a wooden front door?

Not a cheap one, that's for sure. You'll soon find the colour fading and the finish blistering from exposure to sunshine and UV light, and that's if it hasn't peeled off after a few days anyway!

Rawlins Paints only stock wood door and window paints with outstanding adhesion to the substrate (with proper preparation), excellent colour fastness, and extreme UV resistance and weatherproofing that will last for many years. You're not stuck for colour, either, with 4,200+ options to choose from, including popular colours like RAL 7016 Anthracite Grey and Chartwell Green.

We also stock specialist products for painting uPVC and composite doors here.

How do you paint an exterior wood door?

Preparation is key to providing the best protection for your wood doors, window frames, and other joinery. You may find it easier to remove the door from its hinges before starting; where this isn't possible mask all areas you don't wish to paint.

The surface must be free of dust, flaking and non-adhering existing coatings, and contaminants such as waxes and oils, as they will affect the adhesion and application of paints. We stock fungicidal washes and mould and mildew removers to clean residues from the surface.

Sand the edges of remaining paints until they are smooth - always follow the paint manufacturer's application instructions as some may require that all existing paint is removed.

Apply paints by brush or roller, going with the grain. Where multiple coats are required, allow the preceding coat enough time to dry before recoating.

We must stress the importance of reading the data sheets for each product before buying or applying - these can be found in the "data sheets" tab below the image and delivery options on each product page. If something doesn't work or you require further help, contact our technical team by phone or email, who will be happy to help.
