Painting an old storm door.
Perhaps, someone could advise me. I need to paint an old white storm door along with the metal frame around it. The door is a little over 17yrs old. The door was bought at a Home Depot store in Brookfield, Ct.. I live in Putnam County, N.Y.. The door needs painting, but, I do not know what kind of white paint the manufacturer originally used on the door and it's metal frame. I want to paint both this door ( I think its made out of a combination of wood and fiberglas?) and the metal frame (possibly made of aluminum). Both are white and I want to keep to the white. This door and frame, I stress, have never been painted except, by the manufacturer. I need to know, what, if any, primer is needed and what kind of primer to use and what kind of paint to use (latex or oil base)? Thanks.
