Is it possible to paint a metal with vinyl coating front door
B. Enne on Oct 09, 2017If you mean a vinyl-clad door, technically yes you can. You may void your warranty if it is still covered though.I would check with a local paint store for the best paint for the climate in your area.Keep in mind that if you have a storm door, heat can build up and affect the finish.Secondly, you should not go much darker than the current colour, since vinyl doesn't take extremes very well.http://homeguides.sfgate.com/paint-vinyl-coated-steel-door-45636.htmlhttp://www.doityourself.com/forum/doors-skylights-windows/205906-vinyl-covered-exterior-door-peeling.htmlHelpful Reply

FL on Oct 09, 2017"A vinyl coating on a steel door gives the steel a rust and corrosion resistance that it would not have if left bare. Although this makes the door far more resilient to corrosive elements, it also makes painting it the color of your choice a bit problematic. The key to a successful paint job over a vinyl-coated door is the initial coating. The first coat must be a primer coat that will adhere to the vinyl and allow you to paint a finishing coat on the door with the color of your choice."
