Do I Need Any Permits To Paint or Alter My Garage Door?

It depends on where you live. Most building codes do not require permits to repaint or alter a garage door, but city ordinances or homeowners associations may have rules or restrictions on what you can do. In some neighborhoods, nobody cares, but in others you can get in trouble for painting your door the wrong color. Consult your local government or homeowners association to see what changes you can make.
