    Just resprayed my garage door from the brown it previously was to anthracite grey to match my front door.

    Issue I'm having is my garage door is catching somewhere at the front and it's scratching the paint off. Will respray it again but need to sort that problem first. Any ideas???

    Can't tell from your pics but would guess the weather seal is just rubbing the paint off because it has not had long enough to harden.

    You mean the rubber strip at the bottom? Thing is it was doing this before to the manufacturer original paint. I did however replaceone of the autolock straps that hold the garage door to the motor barrel, so I was hoping it would be that, hence why I resprayed

    No I meant a rubber seal attached to the frame at the top of the door ( if you have one ). How old is the door most curtains have a 10 year warranty.

    This is what it looks like at the top , ignore the rest of photo that's where I was doing repairs.

    The door is probably about 10 years old now.
