Garage doors are exposed to the elements all year round and they can eventually begin to flake, peel and crack. However, you can easily freshen it up with suitable garage door paint that’ll not only transform its appearance but also protect it for many more years to come.
Unlike garage floor paint where there are many dedicated paints to choose from, there are only a few paints that have been specifically designed for garage doors. Therefore, many of our recommendations are universal paints that are suitable for wood, metal and many other surfaces but this may be beneficial if you wish to match other exterior surfaces to the door.
To help you choose a garage door paint, our hand-picked selection features top-performing paints chosen through our first-hand experience painting wooden and metal garage doors. We also thoroughly tested multiple paints and carried out the latest research.
