    Refinish or Replace?

It can be more complicated than just putting a fresh coat of paint over the existing paint since the door faces the outside. When the paint is peeling, it will need to be removed as much as possible, and the door will need to be sanded, so the surface is smooth again. Then, new paint needs to be applied correctly to avoid streaks or other issues. Once everything is done, the door needs to be rehung, and the hardware needs to be put back on.
