When you are looking for an affordable option for the windows and doors for your home, uPVC is an excellent option. However, the one problem with this type of windows and doors is that the colour can fade, making them look unsightly, even though they work adequately. Previously, you would need to replace them when the colour faded, which is expensive, but now you can look to spray them and make them any colour you want. If the colour of your windows and doors has faded and you do not want to go to the expense of replacing them, below are the steps to take to paint them and make them look new again.

Get Your Supplies

Before you start uPVC spraying, you will need to get everything you need first. You will need tools to remove any furniture on your windows and doors, masking tape, a suitable uPVC paint and brushes, a fine grade abrasive paper, and a cleaner solution. Once you have everything you need, you can then start getting them ready to paint and transform the look of your home.

Remove The Furniture

You will not often have any furniture outside your windows, but you do get them on doors. You will want to remove the doors from the hinges, which will make it easier to work on, and take off the furniture, such as handles and letterbox. Your windows are easier as you can work on them in place, and you do not need to uninstall them. Once you have done this, you will want to tape up any glass on the unit, so you do not get paint on it, and once complete, you are ready to start the rest of the preparation process.

Preparing The Surface For Painting

You will need to ensure that the frames are 100% clean, and you can use a commercial cleaner to help you do this. Clean the entire surface you will paint thoroughly, and then you will want to start sanding. The finish of a uPVC window and door frame is smooth, and you need to roughen the surface so the paint will stick to it. Sand the surface of the frame evenly, and then once you are done, you can give it another clean to ensure you remove and dust, debris, and other materials from the frame.

Starting To Paint Your uPVC Frames

Once you have prepared the surface of your window or door, it is time to start painting it. Depending on the type of paint you use, you may need a coat of primer first, but you can get paints that do not require this. You will want to paint your windows and doors and try and do it in a dust-free environment if possible. Use long and smooth strokes of the paintbrush and try and get a smooth and even coating of paint as possible. You will often need around three coats of paint to get the best finish, and once the paint is dry, you can start putting the furniture back on and remove the masking tape. Your windows and doors will now be transformed and look like they are brand new.
