Need exterior metal doors painted---suggestions?



From what I've read online, I'm having the same issue a lot of people have with my 2 metal doors...the primer bond to the metal is failing, so the paint is peeling. Can anyone suggest a painter in the Prairieville area? TIA

Sounds like a DIY unless you just want to waste money...

Possibly, but I want to see what someone would charge.

What kind of primer was used? Has to be oil-based. Rustoleum makes a clean metal primer, and I think they also make paint for metal doors to apply over primer. I used the primer, followed by some kind of paint that I don't remember but was probably run-of-the-mill wal-mart or lowes paint, followed by a couple of coats of polyurethane. Held up fine for the past couple of years. I brushed it all on with a soft brush. Brush lines were not a big deal because my door is white. Might take a little more finesse for a darker color.

No idea what was used, same paint since I bought the house 6 yrs ago. But it seems to be the primer as the culprit.

Are you painting latex over oil base?

250 to 1k depending on size, number of doors. other option is to powder coat them do you arent repainting every year. good luck.
