Ok, I am going to chime in. Interior doors. Depending on the job, I am either rolling, or spraying. Either way, I usually take them off. Front doors, exterior......Depends on the hardware, door, and the product, etc. 99% of the time, I'm spraying the door. Two coats. Leaving the hardware off overnight isn't an option, so normally I just mask it off. I do know how to mask. I have messed up a door or two over the years trying to put hardware back on while the paint is still wet. Not to mention, they may want to remove it or maybe someday replace it down the road and it will be stuck to the door.

I think next week we should cover putty knives and 5 in 1s. Do you put them in your back pocket or side pocket?

To answer the 5 in 1 question, neither. I've delegated that task to my apprentice. He always says 'don't you have one?' 'Yep' I reply 'just making sure you brought yours' lol

I've got 34 years painting under my belt. If a HO wants to remove and reinstall Door knobs themselves, that is up to them. If the door knobs are in place during the course of work, I have no problem skilfully painting around them and ultimately satisfying the customer. In my 34 years in the industry, I have never had a complaint.

To me, it presents more of a hassle and/or problem to remove and reinstall door knobs than it's worth. I have a list of reasons why I don't remove them to include: losing parts, breaking inner parts, having difficulty reinstalling, scratching the fresh paint while reinstalling, etc.

I paint the door, I walk away, I'm done.
Well just FYI, there is a bit of door under that door knob.

In all cases, if I think that the end result would look bad if I don't remove the knob, then I will remove it. If the doors are textured, I will leave the knob on or take them off. If the doors are those smooth masonite doors that we see a lot of, taking off the knob is the only way to go. I have only been painting for a few weeks professionally but I painted my moms house a bunch of times over the years.

I just got this beauty delivered to the shop today. I wanted to explode in a fit of rage, so I thought I'd share with all you knobers and no-knobers alike:

Can we all guess why runs are commonly found around door handles?

Until there are laws that are ratified and enforced by governmental authorities, that restrict the painting around of door knobs, I will continue to exercise my right to do so.

We prefer the "baseball cadence": no drips, no runs, no errors.

I see that stuff all the time I tend to take off all the hardware, clean it up, polish it, lacquer it and replace.
