You can find a lot of information online about how to paint your doors. However, one of those articles describes it as "the ultimate painter's challenge." Door painting and door staining are not like painting a wall in your Raleigh, NC area home. It's a process - one that we would highly encourage you to give us a call at Larry Stewart Painting & Decorating to take on for you. There are a lot of variables and using certain tools and techniques can make the difference between your door or doors turning out exactly like you were hoping for or as a DIY gone wrong.
When it comes to door painting and door staining in the Raleigh area, the first and maybe most important step is always the prep work. Cleaning the door well and then sanding it down are the start. Doors tend to suffer some nicks and scratches that you won't find on other surfaces. Dealing with them in the right way can be tricky.
When you ask us to paint your door or doors, we'll usually ask you to consult with us on the paint. Many homeowners prefer a glossy or at least semi-gloss paint for a front door. What's most important is that the right paint is chosen for the right type of surface so that the paint will cover the surface very well and look good.
For the staining of doors, applying the stain requires careful attention. Consistency, speed and completeness can all be factors in how good the stained door looks. You can be sure that the professional painters at Larry Stewart Painting & Decorating will take the proper care in matching up your door to the look you want to see.

Top Quality Painters! Larry Stewart Painting is a superior professional painting company. They are efficient, hardworking, and detail-oriented. They recently power-washed my home in the Governors Club in Chapel Hill, replaced an exterior door to the garage, repaired wood rot, repainted my exterior lights, varnished all the porch ceilings, re-stained the porch floor, hand painted an outdoor spiral staircase, re-stained the front door,caulked all seams, and brush painted all the trim and siding. I had received several cheaper estimates for the job but the other contractors proposed using lower quality paint and spray painting the siding. I was very impressed with the labor intensive brush work on the entire house. Every morning for two weeks, two vans with six men would arrive at 7:30 am wearing clean white painters coveralls prepared to work. Each day they were organized, pre-planned, quiet, courteous, and cleaned up as they worked. The crew completed their duties like skilled craftsmen. Larry Stewart has been painting houses for over 30 years, the experience and expertise are evident in the outcome.
