We recommend painting in our “dry season”, which typically runs from November through mid-April. During this period, there is less rainfall and humidity, providing the most ideal conditions for exterior painting that we have here in South Florida. Here are some of the factors that we consider painting professionals:

  • How will primer and paint adhere to surfaces?
  • Will the overnight dew dry from the north and west faces of the structure so that products will adhere properly?
  • Are we expecting any precipitation or cloud cover?
  • We’ve got a lot of trees around buildings in South Florida. Not only do they cast a lot shade but they can also trap moisture leading to poor adhesion of products. 

With all of that in mind, our teams are equipped to handle exterior painting projects throughout the year, taking into account specific weather conditions to ensure best results. 

Waterproofing is an important service that we offer, and as you can imagine many homeowners are discovering water intrusion during the rainy season. Regardless of the conditions, we’re able to repair damage, apply coatings, caulk, and more during any season to effectively stop your leaks and intrusion.

Sherwin Williams offers a wide variety of high-quality (and some cheapo!) paints suitable for exterior doors and trim. We like to use the best stuff, especially here in South Florida. Our top choice is Emerald Exterior Acrylic Latex Paint, but SuperPaint Exterior Acrylic Latex Paint is a fantastic product as well. These paints are known for their durability, exceptional coverage, and resistance to weather conditions. Both are also self-priming and available in a wide range of colors, allowing you to choose the perfect shade to match your home’s exterior. 

The best color for your garage doors really depends on the overall aesthetic of your home. However, popular choices often include shades of white, beige, or gray as these colors tend to blend well with most exteriors. If you’re looking to make a bold statement, you might consider a darker hue like black or navy blue. Ultimately, the choice is yours and we’re here to help make your vision come to life. We recommend checking out Sherwin-Williams’ exterior paint color suggestions for garage doors for some inspiration. 

For wood garage doors, Sherwin Williams’ SuperDeck® Exterior Waterborne Semi-Solid Color Stain or Benjamin Moore’s ARBORCOAT® Exterior Stain are both excellent choices. These stains penetrate deep into the wood, providing rich color and protection while allowing the natural beauty of the wood grain to show through.

Feel free to mix and match these recommendations based on your preferences and project needs!

 Absolutely! Our team of professional painters is experienced in painting a variety of surfaces, including metal garage doors. We use high-quality, durable paint that adheres well to metal, ensuring a smooth, long-lasting finish. Whether you’re looking to refresh the existing color or want a complete transformation, we can help bring your vision to life. 

If painting the door yourself, remember that it’s important to prepare the surface properly to ensure the paint adheres well. This includes cleaning the door, removing any rust, and applying a primer specifically designed for metal surfaces. You should also choose a paint that’s suitable for outdoor use and for metal surfaces. Sherwin Williams SuperPaint is a good workhorse for this type of job. Make sure to apply the paint in thin, even layers and allow it to dry completely between coats.

Painting a metal garage door involves several steps:

  1. Clean the Surface: Remove any dirt, grease, and loose paint. Use a degreaser if necessary.
  2. Sand the Surface: Lightly sand the door to create a smooth surface for the primer.
  3. Apply Primer: Use a rust-inhibiting primer like Sherwin Williams’ Pro Industrial Pro-Cryl Universal Acrylic Primer or Benjamin Moore’s DTM Acrylic Primer.
  4. Paint: Apply two coats of high-quality exterior paint. We recommend Sherwin Williams’ Resilience Exterior Acrylic Latex or Benjamin Moore’s Aura Exterior Paint for their durability and weather resistance.

The best primer for metal garage doors is a rust-inhibiting primer specifically designed for metal surfaces. This type of primer will not only provide a smooth surface for the paint to adhere to, but it will also protect the metal from rust and corrosion. It’s important to properly clean and prep the surface before applying the primer to ensure the best results. Our team of professionals can help guide you through this process and ensure that your garage door is primed and painted to perfection.

In our Miami-based painting company, we typically apply two coats of paint to ensure a smooth, even finish that can withstand the unique Florida climate. However, the number of coats can vary depending on the specific needs of your project. We always customize our approach to provide the best possible results for your home.

Examples include waterborne acrylic DTM paints, which are low in VOCs and environmentally friendly, and solvent-based DTM paints, known for ease of use but higher VOC content.
