Paint for door Trim
 
I just installed new pine door trim on patio door

I plan on installing a window insulating kit on door. The type with the tape, plastic and you blow dry it to shrink it.

What paint can I use that will not release when I remove the tape next spring?

Oil?

Thanks.

Parman, either will hold, as long as the proper prep is done. Prime if unprimed, allow to dry. Give it a light sanding. Apply two coats of finish with proper dry time between coats. Allow the final coat to cure, I would give it about ten days to be on the safe side. Then apply the window kit.

He's applying a shrink wrap window/door insulating kit to keep draft out.

Thanks. I was over thinking this too much and assumed the latex based would peel off with the tape.

I think my poor past experiences with latex based paint adhesion was probably due to improper prep and application of the paint.

Just be aware that getting the adhesive off the woodwork can be a BEAR! If it doesn't come off cleanly with the plastic and sticks to the wood........ugh. Then you need some acetone or goof-off and a razor blade to remove it. That in turn makes a mess of your fresh new paint job.

You should really apply a sealer or sealer/primer combo to new pine. And shellac any sap spots or knots.

I think like most painters I hate hearing about using adhesives on any painted surfaces and have spent more time than most trying to deal with such things in the gallery world.

Have you looked into the interior storm windows? They snap fit in place from the inside and work out to be cheaper than the shrinkwrap plastic in the long run since you re-use them each season. Here is a link to one company I have used. There are others. The nice thing with interior storms is you don't have to be crawling around your house on an extension ladder. This was an issue with clients that owned tall Victorians. Of course you have to store them off season.

Of course there might be a problem with something patio door side.

You might think about stapling velcro buttons and stretching the shrinkwrap to them. Staple them in place and don't use the adhesive. Staple holes are easy to patch.

You could get really tricky and recess screws you would never see again. Use the tiny super magnets to hold the plastic to them.
