The Function of UPVC Paint

People frequently wonder, “Can you spray paint UPVC windows? What about UPVC doors—or composite doors?” Not only is the answer yes, but the choice might just prove to be one of the greatest home investments you make to the interior or exterior of your property. 

UPVC spraying functions to vivify, enhance, and restore the original “veneer”—or apply an entirely new colour altogether. People often find their vibrant white UPVC doors or windows tend to grow dull and turn off-white or even yellow when subjected to sun, rain, and oxidation. 

The UPVC spraying process serves not only to bring new life to these aged materials but also fortify them against ongoing damage.  A well-applied coating of specially designed UPVC paint will extend the life of these home elements far beyond that of their former versions. 

Bringing Your Home Back to Life

Homeowners are astonished at the difference in colour, texture, quality, and freshness that a proper UPVC door spray paint or UPVC window paint can impart. Effectively, you’re getting the benefits of an entirely new door or trim, without the selection and installation hassle—all for the price of a paint job. The list for UPVC Respraying Opportunities really is endless!

So when budgeting the cost of spraying a UPVC door, compare it with the expense of a replacement door. None of this would be possible without game-changing advancements in precision paint technology. The important thing to know: every surface must be properly cleaned and prepped ahead of time.

Preparing Your UPVC Surface 

In order to make the paint job last as long as possible, you’ll want to ensure the surface is properly prepared. Your technician will arrive and carry out their own cleaning treatment in advance of the spraying phase, but you can help them out by doing a preliminary deep clean of your own.

A solvent-based cleaning agent works best on both new and older UPVC surfaces. Your agent will likely use a scotch pad that has a very slight abrasive or sanding effect—nothing severe enough to actually scratch the plastic, just tough enough to clear off imperfections.

The goal of all preparatory cleaning is to get rid of any dirt or contaminants marring the surface of the plastic before the paint goes down. This will allow for a smooth, even finish. Obviously you don’t want any spotty flaws showing through the layer of colour.
