1. I like airless sprayers and bought one a few years ago. The kind
that sit on a stand with a suction hose you drop into a 1 or 5 gallon
2. I would not use my sprayer for one door. Airless sprayers are
great, but they have to be cleaned. And the amount of time (and wasted
paint) is pretty much the same whether you paint one door or three
3. If you are interested in an airless consider a "reconditioned".
Apparently a lot of sprayers are returned under warranty because people
do not properly clean them and after the first use they do not work
again. If memory serves me I paid $149.99 for a 1/2 hp that retailed
for about $300.
4. I don't want to harp on this, but for a single door I think brush
painting in place will be faster than setting up and cleaning the
airless. Once you have the airless set up the actual painting of the
door will take less than a minute.
