painting doors
 
Do I need to paint the top and the bottom edges of the door?
I am guessing the answer is Yes, for bathroom doors and not required for closet, bedroom doors.
Thank you

I don't know if the pro's do or not, I don't usually mess with it on interior doors

You could paint the top edge - makes it easier to dust - but both the top and bottom edge are rarely coated in my experience.

hi here is the deal with top & bottom every door has 6 sides top bottom 2 edges and front and back for example on a new front door that is a solid core door there is end grain at the top and bottom that will suck in dampness or moister and swell the wood = movement & warping if you call the door company you bought the door from and have a warranty they will slide a mirror under the door if no paint is present on T & B no warranty plus you need 3 coats on top and bottom- if you have a cheap hollow core door for bathroom don't worry ok ty perry the painting contractor
