    Painting: Your steel garage door can be painted with a high quality 100% acrylic latex (flat, satin, or semigloss) exterior grade paint. Before painting the door it must be free of dirt, oil, caulk, waxes and mildew. Do not use any type of oil based paint or Alkyd modified

Clopay's steel garage doors can be painted with any high quality exterior latex paint. Wood garage doors must be painted/stained on all sides prior to installation. Most models are available factory primed. Clopay recommends wood garage doors be re-painted every 1 to 2 years (more frequent refinishing may be required in high moisture areas).

My garage fiberglass door was powerwashed by a guy painting the garage and now it has fiberglass fluffies all over it. How can I get rid of them and seal it? I am not handy.


Re power-washed garage door (Katie):
It sounds like the power-washing pressure, temperature and chemicals loosened the bond between epoxy and glass fibers.
Buy a large container of fiber-glass resin, with activator / hardener.
Brush this on, mixing small amounts as you progress (sets quickly). When completely cured, lightly sandpaper and re-coat if necessary to remove furriness.
Paint with undercoat and weatherproof surface enamel paint.
Acetone solvent can clean (messy, sticky, smelly) resin.
Edit: Wear protective clothing - those fibers itch!! :)

The doors on my S80 are stuck solid at minus 4 ???? help


Can you push it into a heated garage? Maybe shooting some warm air at the doors-even a hair dryer-maybe a garage floor heater that blows hot air. I would suggest a propane torch, but then you might have to get a $2000 paint job! Overkill?

The door was working fine for 8 years, last week it went down to about 2 inches from the floor, then went back up. No obstructions. I the started to adjust the chain...bad idea. Now in is inconsistant...


If this is a wood garage door (as opposed to steel), the problem may be that the door has become heavier. It might even be sagging enough to interfere with smooth operation. The added weight could be from being recently painted or the paint finish has gotten to the point where it's not sealing the wood anymore, so it's soaked up the summer humidity. Call an overhead garage door service company to take a look at it. They can probably make the adjustments to get it working. Then you might want to wait until a couple of weeks of dryer weather in the fall before you repaint the door.

to find out if your spring is broken wthout knowing you can spray a paint line all across the spring and then when you open the door the paint should go into a swirl if the spring is good if not the spring is broken.
