Paint that matches your garage door.

Posted 2/11/2020

Most garage door manufacturers offer dozens of color options for your new garage door, but once you've decided to repaint your home, or if you're just tired of the color of your door, getting the exact color can be a bit nerve-wracking. If you try to explicitly match a different color to your home without a sample of the previous color, things can get a little tricky, but it's still doable. 

There are many new technologies out there that at least get you really close. With a little patience and a little luck, your garage door looks good in no time!

Paint Matching in the CounterMost home improvement stores is offering a paint support service these days. If you are lucky enough to get a sample of the paint you want to match, this process can be quite simple. Without a sample, it is possible to retrieve a small chip of the dried paint you are trying to match. Just use a razor to cut a square inch from the cleanest part of the area, seal it in a baggy and bring it down. Be sure to ask the clerk at the counter to wipe some of the new paint on your sample to ensure a good match. A quick word to the wise - even if the color looks perfect, buy only the smallest possible quantity right away. Bring it home and quality control a small area, let it dry and look at it under your lighting. That way you will not buy a piece of paint that is slightly off. This is especially important if you only touch your door, as even a small difference can be very noticeable.

Phone apps
When you just can't get a try on the color you need or if an exact match isn't very important, there are great new apps on the market that are really fun and do a pretty good job of finding one particular color. Most major paint brands have some kind of color program either for your mobile phone or home computer that allows you to click on a quick photo and then pull colors from it. Shadows and highlights will bring some variation, but you will at least stay in the right shade.

But you end up finding your perfect color, so be sure to save not only a sample of the color, but also make note of the formula numbers and brand to save you time and hassle in the future.
