Replace or Paint door hinges

Posted by jeannie01 (My Page) on

My new homes exterior doors should have been ORB like the interior doors, but confusion between myself and builder they came in satin nickel.

Would it be best to paint them or just replace them?

If paint, what type would work best

Thank You

Hello Jeannie01,

My name is Christine and I work in the paint department at The Home Depot.

Rust-Oleum sells both a spray and brush on paint in oil rubbed bronze. Before you paint you should use an oil based primer.

While painting them is not difficult by any means, especially if it is only a few hinges, you may want to consider replacing them in your desired color. Painting them will probably be cheaper. But a factory finish is always going to be more durable than painting.

I hope that helped,
