Painting interior doors


Painting interior doors what paint is the best paint? So it adheres well, covers, and does not scratch off.

The answer depends on how much prep you are willing to do.
You should always sand to provide tooth for the new paint.
I recommend sanding using wet dry sand paper with water.This is a safe method even if there is lead paint on the door.
Clean with clean water and sponge and when dry wipe door with denatured alchohol.
You can then prime with an acrylic(Zinsser 123) or oil primer (benjamin Moore alkyd underbody)depending on preference to smell and mess.
The finish coats should be brush finished oil.
The higher the sheen the more durable the finish.
The most poular and a great finish is ...Benjamin Moore Satin Impervo oil.
My doors are painted 15 yrs and still look good.

.. good advice up to the "should" be finished in oil. Great advice- for 15 years ago.
Even in the last 5 waterborne finishes have come a long way. Many good choices- some bad ones..

Thank you for your response. It was exactly the advice I needed. I want to make sure I do this project right the first time. I have nine doors and four double door closets.

Brushjockey, Which "waterbourne" finishes do you recommend? Please be explicit on the exact type of paint. Thank you,

Yup And use nice tools like decent brushes to start.

As mentioned, most of the task ahead of you and its outcome depends on the prep.

Those are good'ns. To that list I would add Muralo Ceramic Satin or Semi, BM Aura Satin, BM Advance, there are some smaller regional co. that make good product like Dunn Edwards, Ace hdwr carries Cabinet Coat that I hear is very good.
Read up on applying waterborne finishes. They sometimes are helped by adding an extender to slow drying and make brushing easier.
The main advice is go to a real paint store- you will get better product and ( usually) more informed info.

Good advice but always wipe down the door first with denatured alcohol, allow to dry, sand, the wipe down again with denatured alcohol again. The denatured alcohol helps to remove any surface contaminants that could interfere with adhesion. Sanding without a denatured rinse may grind in and spread waxes, oils and cleaners into the existing paint causing adhesion issues.

Good luck,

Phil "the paint guy"
