  1. The best paint I think is an alkyd gloss. Now having recommended an alkyd, this is maybe not the paint for you. An alkyd will take longer to dry, tend to smell and need a more thorough clean up then latex products, but will leave a smoother finish then a latex paint. If latex is preferred I recommend a top quality exterior latex soft-gloss. Make sure that your door is sanded and cleaned properly before painting.
