Exterior and Interior Door Types
There are two common types of exterior and interior commercial doors: slab and prehung.
Slab doors come with just the door and no hardware, hinges, or frame. Prehung doors, on the other hand, include both the door and the frame that supports the door.
Interior and Exterior Door Material Styles
Both slab and prehung doors come in a variety of materials that can be used in your exterior and interior. Explore the table below to learn about each one:
|Door Material||Description||How the Material Affects the Painting Process|
||Wooden doors provide a warm, inviting look while adding richness to your property. They are also effective at shutting out the noise.||These doors may be either stained or painted. This material is the most time-consuming to paint because the door usually needs to be removed and sanded before the paint can be applied.|
||Vinyl can withstand extreme temperatures, scratching, denting, and warping. Vinyl doors are made with rigid reinforced panels for stability and are insulated for energy efficiency and sound reduction.||Painting a vinyl door requires an initial coating of specialized primer to eliminate matting and make it easier to apply a finishing coat with the color of your choice.
||These doors are created from sturdy aluminum sheets with thermal insulation material made from plastic. They are the most common storefront doors.||Aluminum doors are easy to paint because of their smooth surfaces. Keep in mind that spraying is the best option since it will bond more easily to aluminum than something applied with a roller or brush.
||They are constructed from two large molded sides that are filled with a polyurethane foam core to ensure insulation from extreme temperatures.||They are easy to paint and are quality doors because they don’t shrink, rot, or split as a solid wood door can.
||They are made from a carbon steel sheet that is coated with zinc. Steel doors are the industry standard for most commercial properties due to their reliability and cost-effectiveness.||Paint does not easily adhere to galvanized steel compared to other materials but can be painted using the right tools and application methods. The layer of zinc on the steel door that helps protect it from corrosion can also reject paint, which can lead to peeling over time if not properly handled.|
||These doors are made from a single sheet or roll of steel, welded steel elements, and non-metallic core material.||Metal doors are strong and highly durable but are prone to rust. It’s important to use the appropriate preparation techniques and paint type to repaint any rusty metal door.|
Our Door Painting Process
Our commercial door painting process varies by the job but usually follows our proven three-step method.
Step 1: Prep
Our service professionals first prepare the door before painting begins. This may include:
- Removing the door from its hinges
- Taking down all the hinges and door handles
- Cleaning up any dirt and debris
- Repairing broken items (e.g., removing water-damaged wood, replacing weathered or broken trim, and more)
- Sanding to remove old paint and stain
- Collecting any dust from sanding and wiping down the area again
Step 2: Prime
We then apply a high-quality primer to prepare the surface for a seamless, longer-lasting paint job.
Step 3: Paint
Lastly, we paint the surface with the appropriate paint color. Depending on the door material and condition, this process may take several coats.
FAQs about Commercial Interior Door Painting
How long do painted doors last?
Although many factors contribute to how long painted doors will last (including the quality of paint and the condition of the surfaces), interior paint is usually good for five to 10 years and exterior paint for five to seven years.
How long should a door stay open after painting?
After painting, we encourage you to wait at least two days before closing an interior door and about 24 hours from your final coat for exterior doors.
