Painting Fiberglass Doors Black


I have a question about changing the color of a fiberglass exterior door. I purchased a mahogany fiberglass door for the front of my house. My shutters are black and I want to know if I can paint the door black? What would be your advice? Thanks!

If the door gets lots of direct sunlight, it could be a huge mistake. The black paint can absorb a tremendous amount of heat and there may be an issue with the paint bubbling. But, if the door is shaded by a nice roof or faces north, you will be just fine. Be sure you use a paint that has a blend of acrylic and urethane resins.
