Years ago I owned a home that I painted colonial blue with white trim...and a red front door. The effect was striking -- that is, until I added a black security screen door.

I own a different house now which I want to paint(although not blue and white), and I want to paint the door a contrasting color...maybe red again. I'll be installing a security screen door on this house, also, and want to know if security screen doors are ever painted. I really want the contrasting color of the door to show through, but I consider a security screen door a neccesity.

I'd appreciate any advise or help.

I have the same question, I want to paint my door an accent color but I have a metal security door. I am thinking of painting the security door and the door the same accent color. What did you ever end up doing??

How about buying a white security door with inset glass, so that your red front door is visible through the pane?

I don't think there would be anything wrong with painting a security screen. If it still functions how it's supposed to then I don't see what the problem would be. You might want to check out what kind of paint would last longest for it, though. That wouldn't be a fun job to have to re-paint it often.

Have you ever tried checking to see if you can find a security screen door in the same color as your front door? I don't know if they actually exist or not but it's worth a try. If not, I don't see a problem in painting the door. I'll bet there are ways to make the color last longer but you'll have to research that.
