Advise on painting the exterior of newly installed white patio doors; I believe they're vinyl clad; wish to paint to match the rest of the doors & trim on my house's exterior. Will it take paint? Do I need to use a kilz type product first?

I would lightly sand with 220 grit sand paper, wipe off dust, prime with a quality exterior all purpose primer, not kilz, kilz is ok for exterior spot priming but it is mainly an interior primer/stainkiller (with the exception of the waterbased versions). Then use a quality exterior paint for the outside and your trim paint (or preference) for the inside. I would recomend an oil paint for better adhesion and durability in a high traffic area.

Use quality paints from a pro paint store.
