Garage builders know this to be true. The one part of a garage that always looks the worst most quickly is the garage door. Often times after 5 years or so your garage door may start to look a little worn and tired. Let’s face it, garage doors aren’t cheap, so what we recommend is that you give your garage door a little TLC in the form of a fresh paint job.

While you certainly can hire a pro, painting a garage door is not that difficult if you understand the fundamentals. In this great video by John Burbidge, those fundamentals are explained brilliantly!

When I spoke with Phil Gazzola, owner of Steele and Loeber Garage Builders in Chicago about John’s advice on how to best paint a garage door, he completely agreed. And this coming from a guy whose company is the oldest garage builder in Chicago!
