Can I Paint My Patio Doors?

Many homeowners wonder if they should skip replacing their patio doors and paint them instead. While you can paint over some minor scrapes, scratches, and chips, you might want to opt for replacement if the damage is more extensive, the doors are old and drafty, or you simply desire a more modern style.
