You can find a lot of information online about how to paint your doors. However, one of those articles describes it as "the ultimate painter's challenge." Door painting and door staining are not like painting a wall in your Garfield Heights, OH area home. It's a process - one that we would highly encourage you to give us a call at Callahan Painting & Home Improvements to take on for you. There are a lot of variables and using certain tools and techniques can make the difference between your door or doors turning out exactly like you were hoping for or as a DIY gone wrong.
When it comes to door painting and door staining in the Garfield Heights area, the first and maybe most important step is always the prep work. Cleaning the door well and then sanding it down are the start. Doors tend to suffer some nicks and scratches that you won't find on other surfaces. Dealing with them in the right way can be tricky.
When you ask us to paint your door or doors, we'll usually ask you to consult with us on the paint. Many homeowners prefer a glossy or at least semi-gloss paint for a front door. What's most important is that the right paint is chosen for the right type of surface so that the paint will cover the surface very well and look good.
For the staining of doors, applying the stain requires careful attention. Consistency, speed and completeness can all be factors in how good the stained door looks. You can be sure that the professional painters at Callahan Painting & Home Improvements will take the proper care in matching up your door to the look you want to see.

Jim and his crew are nothing but polite and professional! They are the quickest and friendliest workers we have ever met. And we wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Jim worked hard to schedule these services right as we were moving into our new house, so that the walls were clean and prepped for painting right away. His crew was quick, and left no mess at all. Compared to all of the other companies I had in and out of my house those first few weeks - these guys were by far the best to deal with!
Callahan Painting saved my sanity! They were able to get the job done weeks faster than any other contractor, and at a fair price. Jim the owner was always available to answer my questions or address any issues I had. When work was done, he did a quality check walkthrough with me to make sure all work was done up to my standard. Jim's two man crew got done in a week what would have taken me months to complete. They were fast, friendly, and did a fantastic job. I would recommend Callahan to anyone!
The crew were professional, on time and provided quality work. Several contractors made appointments and never showed up. Others showed up, said they would email an estimate and never did. Jim came out, gave me an estimate and the work was completed in five days.
Jim and his crew did an exceptional job... so much more than I expected. Not only did they do a beautiful job restoring my plaster walls and painting, but they also put a back splash in the kitchen, replaced light fixtures, outlets, moved the thermostat to a new wall location, picked up and mounted a new television and managed to get my fireplace functioning. I couldn't believe how helpful and willing Jim was to do whatever I asked. We completely rehabbed three rooms, an entry way and hallway and they look amazing! He was so helpful and patient in helping me choose colors and was also cost conscious when it came to choosing material for my back splash. Jim is honest, fair and I definitely plan on hiring him again!
Always polite and professional.
Jimmy and his crew responded right away and returned the ceiling to better than original condition, all within 24 hours of contact. Can't thank enough- recommend highly!
Jim and his crew were great! Got us in before we moved to Ohio and even stayed late the day before we moved in to ensure the paint was dry and ready to go.
