Question

Painting Garage Door


I am in the process of painting my house, and was originally going to repaint the door. The instructions with my Martin door say to use any good quality oil base paint. I have decided to leave it white, as we are going with white trim. There was a house about a block from us, that when they painted the house , they repainted the garage door. I have no idea what they used, but a year later the paint came off the door in sheets!

I have seen that before. These companies come out and do a faux wood graining on a factory new metal garage door. A few years later or less it flakes off.
