Why is wrapping vinyl better than paint

Why is vinyl wrapping  better than painting.

Rm wraps believes in wrapping a door, refrigerator, cabinets and more. Rm wraps will show you why. The Positive and negatives of painting vs wrapping.

History: Randy Miller has owned and been a Professional painter for 11 years before going into the wrapping business. He has painted a lot doors, cabinets and some refrigerators. Randy has used HVLP guns (video) Airless sprayer (Video) and Hand painted (video). Click on the video word to learn how the paint. 

Why does Rm wraps like vinyl wrapping a door?

Cleaner, no smells, installed faster and ready to use when your done, no paint drips, no brush or roller marks, no clean up, you will not get dirty, Love the look and feel of the vinyl. Even sheen, "very easy to clean". the vinyl is air release so no air bubbles, It will last for years. Its the same material as Vehicle wraps, so if it can last for 7 years out side on a car, it will last longer in your doors.

Painting a door 

If you brush or roll the paint, you'll need to prime and put to coats on. You will see the brush and roller marks. 

  • Step 1: The easiest way to paint a door is to start by removing it, then removing all the hardware and lay it horizontally on saw horses. This will eliminate potential drips. But, I’ve painted plenty of doors without removing them. So, it’s your choice.
  • Step 2: Lightly sand the entire door. No need to bust out the power sander, you can use a sanding block or sheet of sand paper. Be sure to sand down any bumps or blemishes. The main goal is to give your door a little “tooth” for the new paint or primer to adhere to.

  • Step 3: Time to decide if you need to use primer. Here are reasons you would need to use it:

  • If the door is bare wood or stained wood.
  • If the door is a dark color and you want to paint it much lighter.
  • If the door was painted with oil and you want to use latex paint (how to tell? Rub a small spot with ammonia and if the paint comes off it is latex.)
  • If you are painting over latex with latex (or oil over oil) and the previous paint job is in good shape you can skip the primer. (This was the case with my door, so I didn’t prime it.)

  • Step 4: Paint the panels first.Using a small roller to paint doors can greatly speed the  process. Begin by rolling paint on the panels. Work quickly by rolling on the paint, then use a brush to smooth out the paint and fill in any spots missed by the roller. Follow the arrow directions above when brushing on the paint. Drag your brush  in the same direction as the woodgrain on your door. This will highlight the grain and keep your door looking neat and clean. NEVER run your brush strokes perpendicular to the wood grain. This does NOT look professional.

  • Step 5: Next roll the inside cross pieces. Start by rolling and painting the center vertical piece. Again, drag your brush up and down vertically with the wood grain (see arrows in the above diagram.) Then paint the horizontally pieces in the middle of the door.

  • Step 6: Paint the border. Pay attention to the direction of the woodgrain for this last step. The grain on the two sides should flow vertically from top to bottom. There are header and footer panels sandwiched between the left and right sides. These “sandwiched” pieces should be painted by dragging your brush horizontally (see diagram above.)

  • Step 7: The last step is to paint the edges of the door. (Avoid painting the hinges…that’s not very professional either!)

    Roll paint onto the edges then smooth them with the paintbrush. Be on the lookout for drips or puddles of paint.Go back and check the face of your door for drips as well.

    Let your door dry (30 minutes – 1 hour), then follow up with a second coat of paint. When you are done let the doors dry for 2+ hours before flipping them to paint the other side. I have found that it helps to put a pieces of cardboard or scrap bare wood under the door so the paint doesn’t stick to the saw horses.
