Painting Wood Doors
Two coats need to be applied, sanding lightly in between coats using fine sandpaper grit. Remember to remove any foreign particles before applying the second coat.
Doors that are exposed to a great amount of direct sunlight, such as those facing the south or west, should be painted a lighter color to avoid excessive movement, splitting or cracking and you may need to refinish the door more frequently.
