In order to paint Fiberglass doors you should clean the front, back & edges with mild detergent & water or use a TSP (tri-sodium phosphate) solution before painting. Remember also, that, when it comes to resisting weathering most effectively, exterior types of paint can work best. Apply evenly.
 
After rinsing, allow to completely dry. This should remove any oils from shipping or manufacturing. It's usually an overnight process, so don't try to rush it. Take any tape off the very next morning, apply additional topcoats, or simply finish up the process. Have some water-based latex paint with you, too, in addition to some assorted-size paintbrushes. A paint stirring stick would not be such a bad idea, either. Get mineral spirits or acetone, too, if they can be found.
 
Do not use lacquer on any type of fiberglass surfaces as it is simply not good for them at all. If the door was stained, or even painted, in any previous point, then stop. Before you start, put a bonding primer on the whole door. Once that primer has dried up properly, then you can begin to paint. This is a very important step, all in all.

Door closers were patented in the United States on the same day American Illustrator & Artist Albert Henry Krehbiel was born (November 25, 1873) by Francis Richards. It used a spring & adjustment screw in a cylinder tube. It was primitive, noisy & inconsistent in action speed, but an improvement over the previous efforts. Once other inventors got in the act things changed quickly.
 
On June 15, 1880, Lewis C. Norton was issued a patent on an improved pneumatic door closer which added air pressure in the cylinder to prevent the door from slamming. A second patent followed in 1882, a device that had better speed control, improved closing performance, & was more effective. This led to Norton forming the Norton Door Check & Spring Company in June of that year.
 
The first door closer to use liquid was invented by Eugene Blount in 1889. In 1916 John Gerard of Connecticut invented the first concealed-in-the-door liquid closer. Often doors in commercial locations now have concealed closers in the jamb or floor!
 
Today more & more doors require, by code, a door closer including fire doors, apartment & hotel doors, ADA doors & doors in air conditioned spaces for heating & cooling efficiency. If your closer is leaking oil, or if the door is closing too slow or slamming, have the closer examined to determine if it can be adjusted, repaired, or needs to be replaced.
 
You can open your door fully, then let go & count to 5 Mississippi. If it closes too fast, too slow, or doesn't latch, an adjustment may be required for security.

What type of front door is best?
 
If you want to settle for quality, then you should go for a steel door. These doors provide security & durability of your best interest. You will also require minimal tools to repair any dents & dings that might form unlike what you'd use for cracks & warps in fiberglass & wooden doors.
 
FAQ Source
 
 
Why are front doors so expensive?
 
The high pricing of front doors is usually a result of considerations such as the material used; customization is done, accent fixtures, installation, warranty, & hardware options.

    We unfortunately had one of our living room walls suffer damage from a small fire we (thankfully) put out almost immediately. The wall had burnt enough though that we started searching for a solution that could work with our insurance claim. To our great pleasure, Edward's Enterprises & the team of technicians beautifully restored our wall & worked with our claim adjuster as we dealt with our insurance company!

    What should I look for when buying a front door?
     
    The key features that you should note when shopping for your front door include safety provision (unexposed hinges & special locks) & the protection that it provides you, whether from the heat or cold that's outside.
     
    FAQ Source
     
     
    Can you replace a door frame without replacing the door?
     
    For you to determine whether you will have to replace the whole door or not, when faced with damage, then you will have to consider the state of the jamb. If the jamb is not out of the square & it's in good shape, then you will require minimal tools to replace the door.
