Forum Title: Please help garage door paint sticking
Ok so I screwed up. Really stinks because it was hot, last thing to do to finish a big job. I knew it was too hot so I came back early in morning instead. It was still May but it's the Midwest so I guess it was still to humid. Now the satin exterior paint is sticking. It's sticking to the rubber weather sealing strip that touches the garage doors. I have been back to power sand. I sanded so much I stripped off some of the rubber stripping, put a small hole or two in it, but it seemed to work. Now months later she says the doors are still sticking. And they are. Not as bad but they are sticking a little and leaving paint on the rubber stripping again. SO, OPTIONS? Hopefully I don't have to replace stripping! Could I repaint all three doors with a flat paint? Would that solve the problem? If I do that do u just re-sand the rubber stripping to get that sticky satin off? Or should I paint the back side of the rubber too with something flat or even a textured finish so it doesn't continue to stick? A handyman suggested some wax or paraffin rubbed on the door. but I figured that would be noticeable or need to be redone eventually? Thanks for advice I just want to get it right without spending a ton
