is the door wood or metal?all the major brands have good exterior paint.if it was painted with latex,you cant go over it with oil paint.sherwin-williams,beahr,ici,pittsburg,hppg/monarch are some good paints.it could be prep.problem also.on wood id scrape and sand,then prine,then paint.light metal will scar with a scraper.you may need a good stripper.then acid etch,prime and paint.it does sound like a prep.problem.some time it helps to be able to see the problem.do you have a photo?hope this helps.just a note,never buy cheep paint.especially for exterior use.geezer69

I told him that 90% of peeling paint is in the prep....scrape, sand the whole surface.......

I don't know what was on there before........I will see if he can get a pic and describe more of what he did.
