How Many Coats Does it Take?

Another Q&A:

QUESTION:
When painting an exterior door, the more paint you paint on will make it darker?
I am painting an exterior metal door the color clay pot. I am wondering if the more coats I paint on it will the color get darker. I have painted two coats on it already!
ANSWER:
On exterior metal, you should use a bonding primer first since the paint may not stick well or adhere appropriately.

The color should be what is advertised – it does not matter how many coats you apply. However, if it is a deep base color you are using you may need several coats to cover the door properly.

Ask your paint store for the bonding primer and if the color you are using is considered deep base.

If you need any other help, you can ask me any questions you’d like for free by going to my blog at blog.ezpaintinginc.com and clicking on “Ask Mike”.
