How the uPVC spray painting process works
uPVC spray painting is an easy and simple process to changing the colour of your uPVC windows.
Firstly, one of our experienced team will remove any silicone from around the windows, as this will prevent the paint from sticking to the surface. They will then completely clean all of the uPVC surfaces removing any dirt and dust to ensure there is no form of contamination, before masking up all of the glass, brickwork, sides and openings of your windows to protect such surfaces from the paint.
abrade the uPVC surface to ensure the paint has something to grip to when applied.
Next, our painter will abrade the uPVC surface to ensure the paint has something to grip to when applied and create the perfect finish.
Finally, we will apply the paint, starting with a light dust cover to ensure there are no remaining contaminants. Once that dries five minutes or so we will apply a second and third coat of paint. Depending on your chosen unique colour, we will apply a minimum of three coats, though more may be required. After around 30 minutes the paint will have dried on a surface level and we will remove the masking from the glass and brickwork. After 48 hours the paint will have fully cured, and the transformation will be complete.
