    1. Repaint garage door white. There is some flaking paint. What’s the best way to tackle the uneven surfaces due to where the paint has peeled off?

    2. RePaint wooden frame around garage door. Black paint has peeled pretty bad.

    3. First couple row of bricks have been painted black, this has peeled in some places however the general finish is a bit dull. Does this require a special type of paint?

    I’ve attached pictures of all 3.

    Thanks

    1. Buy a DA sander and feather the paint out. Alternatively, use 2 pack filler and feather that out. I am guessing that the metal is galvanised- do not sand through the galvanised coating.

    2. Remove flaking paint. Prime and then fill with 2 pack filler. Then feather the filler. Alternatively, use a heat gun to remove all of the paint.

    3. It looks like someone used (oilbased?) gloss at some point. Try to scrape the paint off and then fill with Toupret Touprelith F if necessary. Then apply masonry paint. If you want shiny paint look at this.

    I would recommend connecting the sander to a dust extractor ("vacuum cleaner") because of the dust (some of the paint may contain lead). At a minimum you need to wear an appropriate mask, but they aren't easy to buy at the moment...
