Can You Paint Composite Doors? 

The first question you might be wondering is can you paint composite doors? The answer is yes, you can! When you paint our doors, this could help protect against moisture, the elements, and sunlight. As a result, our composite doors last longer and stay strong against structural damage. 

Which Paint Is Right For You?

It is important to choose a paint that holds well against wind and rain. What’s more, the paint will enhance the look of your home, complementing its overall look. A paint that offers UV protection should also be considered, as this could help reduce discolouration in sunlight. Take a look at some of the most popular paint choices on the market and see which one is right for you.

Acrylic Latex Paint 

Acrylic latex paint is durable, withstanding sunlight, rain, and varying temperatures. This paint is low maintenance and easy to look after, so all you have to do is clean it with soap and water. What’s more, the coats of paint dry quickly, so you can use your door sooner rather than later!

By reducing exposure to sunlight, acrylic latex paint will retain the doors’ vibrant appearance so you can enjoy it for longer.

Polyurethane Based Paint 

Polyurethane based paint is an ideal choice if you want to make your composite door more elegant. This paint offers a high mirror finish, adding extra gloss to your composite door.  It forms a hard protected shell that stands firm against any scratches and hard knocks, so feel confident that it gives superior resistance to any damage. 

The smooth surface adds a beautiful design to your door while being easy to clean. Take advantage of a low maintenance paint that looks fantastic.  

Satin Paint 

Satin paint is a great choice for composite doors. It’s a versatile option that is available in a range of colours. This paint adds a calmer and muted effect to your home, making sure your composite door stands out. 

What’s more, satin has a lower sheen level, so it tends to be easier to apply. Feel assured that you will get an elegant shine that brings depth and richness to your front door.

Exterior Paint With Primer 

Another option that we offer is exterior paint with a primer. Add a layer of primer on the composite door first, then add two layers of paint. The second layer to your composite door will make sure the job looks professional and neat, maintaining its sleek aesthetics. Choosing this type of paint could help you stay protected from the worst weather conditions, giving you a pristine and long lasting finish. 

Gloss Paint 

If you are a homeowner who wants a vibrant and smooth finish, gloss paint is a perfect option for you. Gloss paint stands out due to its high shine appearance, enhancing the doors’ aesthetic appeal. Gloss paint is very easy to look after, giving you strong protection against harsh weather conditions. 

What’s more, gloss paint can reflect light, which could be ideal in smaller homes. Bring an inviting and spacious feel into your property.
