Re: Dogs Are Killing My Freshly Painted Doors, Customer Not Thrilled


If I had to paint it I'd lean towards epoxy, Skinning the door and wrapping the post are still the best option.

My dog has her own ottoman in front of a picture window her slobber alone messes up the paint resting her head on the sill and it's a water based alkyd enamel.

What was on the door before is just an adhesion issue?

Ok, thx for all the feedback.

One more question- how much of a factor is dry-time? They had dogs in there the next day. SW is saying needs like 2 weeks to fully cure. Any thoughts?

I agree with the SW Corothane. But, talk with a paint rep first and find out proper prep and primer.
Most likely the door would have to be tripped and start over.
DTM not that tough. Shercryl a better choice but it has to cure.

Can doors be temporarily removed and another installed? Then painted doors could be left to cure?
