How Can You Spray Paint UPVC windows?
You can spray paint UPVC windows successfully as long as you carry out the correct preparation and use coatings specific for the job.
The very nature of UPVC, being hard and shiny, leads people to think that paint won’t stick to it. But, paint technology has progressed in leaps and bounds and there aren’t many surfaces and materials nowadays that can’t be painted.
We have been using our specialist UPVC paint successfully for over 2 years and so having complete confidence in it we are happy to provide our own company 10 year guarantee.
How Do You Spray Paint UPVC Windows?
Our UPVC windows spraying process begins by taking out the opening windows.
We see many other companies spraying windows with the opening windows left in place but we consider this bad practice. To clean the surfaces thoroughly, mask up correctly and apply even coats of paint requires their removal.
We then remove any old silicone from around the frames as no paint will adhere to silicone. The gap between the brick/stone and the frame is brushed out to remove dirt/cobwebs and loose debris. Prior to spraying we will also blow compressed air into the gaps to get rid of any remaining debris.
Probably the most important part of the preparation process is the cleaning of the plastic. We use a strong preparatory cleaning solvent specifically designed for the cleaning of old UPVC. Using lint free cloths and extra fine scotch pads every inch of the surfaces to be sprayed are cleaned. Special attention is given to the welds where dirt and grime accumulates.
When we are happy that the surfaces are completely clean we mask up around the frames, the gaps into rooms and the glass. We also mask up any rubber gaskets/seals.
Our UPVC spraying equipment consists of a portable compressor, hose and professional spray gun. The tip in the spray gun is designed to spray an even coating of our specialist coating and leave a flawless factory finish.
Initially a light ‘dust coat’ is sprayed on to the plastic. This will tell us if there are any contaminants remaining on the surfaces. Once evident that no residues remain a further two coats are sprayed.
The paint dries quickly allowing us to remove the masking after 10 to 15 minutes normally. We then apply a bead of new colour matched silicone to re-seal the frames and re-fit the opening windows. After a final check and clean up the UPVC windows spraying process is complete.
UPVC Windows Spraying Colours and Finish
If you are replacing your windows with new you are restricted to the limited colour range on offer. Our UPVC spray painting service enables you to choose practically any colour. Colours are available from the RAL and British Standard colour charts.
We can also colour match to colours from most paint manufacturers including Farrow & Ball, Dulux, Little Greene, Crown, Johnstones etc.
For example, the new owners of this stone cottage had replaced the old wooden front door with a new composite door in Wedgewood Blue. We had our UPVC paint colour mixed and sprayed the existing dark brown UPVC windows to match.
You can choose a matt, satin or gloss finish. The most popular finish at the moment is matt.
What Is The Cost Of UPVC Window Spraying?
We have to price each job individually. As you can imagine a number of factors have to be taken into account. The size of the window, does any damage need repairing, how dirty, access, excessive silicone removal/replacement etc.
To give you an idea of cost the windows in the cottage above were priced at £175 each to spray in the Wedgewood Blue but this is a fraction of the cost of having a new coloured UPVC window supplied and fitted.
Can You Spray The Inside Of UPVC Windows?
Yes, you can spray the interior of UPVC windows. We use exactly the same process and equipment as we use to spray the exterior of UPVC windows.
We recently sprayed 14 dark brown windows like the one above in an old farmhouse. The new owners felt that they made the rooms too dark and closed them in. We sprayed them in white matt and they looked like new and made a huge difference to each room.
UPVC Window Spraying Guarantee
Our company guarantees the paint against peeling, flaking and fading for 10 years.
There are certain instances where damage may occur but are beyond our control and scope of the guarantee. For example a window cleaner could scrape their ladder against a window sill. We can come out and rectify this for a reasonable charge.
Our aim is 100% customer satisfaction and we will discuss any problems in an honest and amiable fashion. We do not hide at the first hint of a problem but will deal with it quickly and efficiently.
