Painting Doors Both Interior And Exterior

Painting doors throughout your home and achieving a professional, consistent appearance can be tricky.  We will walk you through our steps to achieve a beautiful smooth for painting doors.  Or, if you choose,  you can rely on the experts at Klappenberger & Son and spend your time doing something more enjoyable. 

We have several best practices that we follow when the customer wants a smooth factory finish.  Firstly, we sand to remove any texture.  Secondly, we patch any divots, scratches, etc.  Finally, we prime and paint with a sprayer or brush.  If we use a brush, we add a paint conditioner to reduce the brush strokes.   

Even Professionals Make This Mistakes When Painting Doors

One of the mistakes many DIY’s and too many painting contractors make when painting doors is rolling them.   Besides the fact that it leaves a nappy texture, painting doors with a roller also leaves a rougher surface and reduces the sheen.   Yes, if you are painting a door, it is faster to roll, and you can save money too!  But the overall appearance of the door is compromised.

Fresh coats of paint for your home’s doors can add fresh life into existing doors and personalize these details of your home to your distinct style. Removing and painting every door by hand can be time-consuming, and completing door painting and preparation properly isn’t as easy as it seems.

At Klappenberger & Son, we understand the proper preparation and products to ensure a lasting and attractive finish for every door in your home. We’ll remove each door, then clean and sand the surface of the door, hinges and knob, repair any nicks then apply any paint or stain color of your choosing with effective, professional tools. While many local homeowners prefer the fresh, clean look of white interior doors and glossy exterior doors, we can personalize your doors with any paint or stain color you prefer.

Daniel is always my first call for painting and handyman services. He is professional, prompt, and he provides me with a detailed and itemized estimate. I tend to be quite nit-picky with the end product and if ever something is not perfect, Daniel fixes it to my liking.

Every day Arturo's team was on time. I was very impressed with the final paint job and the work ethic of the crew. I feel they went above my expectations and would hire again. All crew adhered strictly to COVID guidelines and wore masks the entire time. I truly enjoyed working with Arturo.
