Can I paint fiberglass?


I have a fiberglass balcony and would like to paint it another color, can I do that and should I sand it first like I would a wood balcony?
Thanks,
Laura

Can I paint fiberglass?


I don't know about structures, but I've got an aquaintence here in town that uses Dupont Imron To paint fiberglass boats. I even asked about paint peeling as a result of friction against the surface of the water, and he said no problems in several years of painting them.

Can I paint fiberglass?


Thanks for the quick replies. It is actually the floor only that's in fiberglass. How should I prepare the surface to be painted, should I sand it? It is quite dull as it is, I just bought the house but I'm told it's been there for about 5 years. I geuss I'll have to get special paint like the boat painter did.
