If anyone has a family band, or their children have a band, or even if their children are just very loud and want an extra space to play after school with friends before the parents come home, new roll up garage doors can be soundproofed. Children who stay in the garage for extended periods of time will appreciate the manner in which the acid stain and concrete stain accentuates the new garage doors. This makes for a wonderful area to keep tools, work on repairs, or construction because the noisy tools will not disturb the neighbors outside or the family inside. Since it is not desirable to keep lights on inside of the garage during the day, there are plastic window options for roll up garage doors that maintain your current security level while letting in natural light and cutting the costs of your energy and electric bills.
If you choose steel roll up garage doors, it is in your best interest to paint them so that they match your acid stain or concrete stain garage floors. This combination of matching garage floors and doors offers the greatest curb appeal. By doing this, you will be able to increase the value of your home. It is imperative as a first step that you ready the steel roll up garage door before painting. Before you being, you should have a power sprayer for cleaning, as well as a detergent which is phosphate-free, a soft-bristled brush, fine steel wool, a drop cloth, painter's tape, primer which is galvanized and aluminum, as well as latex primer, brushes, rollers, and latex exterior house paint.The first step is to remove any wax that might be on the garage door or peeling paint from a previous paint job. After this you should take the fine steel wool and lightly sand the roll up garage doors so that any current gloss is removed.
After the door is dry, just like with acid stain or concrete stain, the handles and the trim should be covered with the painter's tape and the drop cloth placed beneath the door to avoid spills on your driveway. If any bare metal is exposed, use the galvanized and aluminum primer. After this, the entire door should be painted with the latex primer. Avoid painting the joints or edge seals and make sure to let it dry after you are done. After this, you can paint the door with the exterior latex house paint, again, avoiding joints and edge seals, and let it dry. Apply as many layers as necessary and enjoy the new color of your roll up garage doors matching your stained concrete garage floors.
