Rusty Metal Door Painting

Metal doors are known to be exceptionally strong and durable, making them ideal for commercial properties in Dublin, CA. However, metal doors are also prone to rust, and replacing them is expensive. That’s why business owners would rather paint their metal doors to keep up with ongoing maintenance, as it is a more economical alternative than replacement.

Custom Painting, Inc. has worked with many types of surfaces, including rusty metals. In dealing with rusty metal door painting, our professional paint crew will use the correct paints, tools, and techniques to remove all rust from your metal doors and leave the surfaces clean before repainting them properly.

While the painting process may be different depending on the type of metal used for doors, our professional paint crew usually follows these steps:

  1. Removing the door.
  2. Removing the door hardware, such as the doorknob and hinges. If necessary, we soak the hardware in a rust remover solution for at least 30 minutes, depending on the severity of the rust.
  3. Preparing the workspace.
  4. Removing the loose rust and flaking paint from the door’s surface. If some areas are heavily rusted and pitted and cannot be removed by manual wire brushing alone, we may use a drill with a wire wheel attachment to remove rust.
  5. Sanding off the remaining rust.
  6. Cleaning the painted surfaces of the metal door with a degreaser and cleaner to prepare it for priming and painting. 
  7. Applying a rust-inhibiting primer.
  8. Applying an even coat of exterior paint that’s formulated for use on metal surfaces. We usually apply two coats of paint, letting the first coat dry completely before applying the second coat.
  9. Re-installing the hardware on the metal door.
  10. Re-installing the door.
  11. Final clean-up and proper disposal of debris and waste.

Usually, rolling and spraying are the usual application techniques when painting metal doors. Still, spraying is preferred as it is quicker and gives the surface a smooth and uniform finish. 

Along with the proper cleaning and preparation of door metals, we use only quality paints and primers that are formulated for use on metal surfaces to ensure durability and longevity.
