Frequently Asked Questions
Do You Paint Prehung Doors Before Or After Hanging?
There is no one correct answer to this question. Some painters prefer to paint prehung doors before they are hung, while others prefer to paint them after they are hung. There are pros and cons to both methods. Painting before hanging can be helpful because it ensures a more even finish on the door, and it is easier to get into all the nooks and crannies of the door. However, it can be difficult to get the paint in all the crevices around the hinges and knob if the door is already hung. Painting after hanging is less likely to result in an even finish, but it is easier to access all the areas of the door.
How Do You Paint A Prehung Door Frame?
To paint a prehung door frame, you must first remove the door. Next, use a brush or roller to paint the door frame, and then reattach the door.
