Painting new fiberglass exterior door

wickedgraceNovember 13, 2010

I have a new Pella fiberglass entry door which is factory primed. What kid of paint do I use? I live in South Georgia with lots of humidity if that matters, The door is my front door and is mostly glass with full sidelights. It is also covered by a porch so it is not directly exposed to the elements. Our old wood door had paint that would "stick" to the weather stripping and ended up pulling off of the door. Any ideas?

100 percent acrylic high quality exterior paint in satin or better sheen. There are many good choices out there. You should not have problems with paint sticking to the weatherstrip with a new door.
