How Does uPVC Spray Painting Work and Why Use the Onsite Experts – ColdShield?

CLEAN, CLEAR and PROTECT
Before we start painting, regardless of whether we’re working inside or outside, the area has to be clean and clear. If we’re painting indoors, furniture is either moved, covered with plastic or both and floors are covered with dust-sheets. If working outdoors, the working area is swept clean and furniture is moved or covered.

CLEAN and DE-GREASE
Using specialist cleaning products, we deep clean and de-grease the uPVC windows and doors that we’re spraying. It’s a 2-part process, using products manufactured in the UK. The cleaning process cleans off contaminants on the surface which ensures a perfect, long-lasting bond with the paint.

MASKING
As soon as the windows and doors are cleaned and decontaminated, we start the masking process. Handles that are not being sprayed are removed. Glass is taped up and protected with plastic sheeting. Any adjacent surfaces are fully masked off to protect from over-spray. Dust-sheets are taped securely in place, protecting your flooring.

SPRAYING
Once the masking is complete, our specialist spray equipment is assembled and the paint is prepared by mixing it with the curing agent, once that’s done, we’re ready to start spraying.

FINISHING UP
The specialist paint that we use is touch dry within two minutes but we always allow a few minutes extra drying time to ensure the best possible bond for the paint. Our equipment is then packed away, windows are de-masked and given a good clean and we’ll leave your windows and home as good as new!

Can I paint uPVC frames?

YES.

OPTION 1 You can buy bog standard upvc paint from many DIY stores to brush paint a superficial surface onto uPVC frames but it will need repainting every couple of years. This defeats a key benefit of uPVC as it is virtually maintenance free. You can Do It Yourself or most painter and decorators will undertake the painting for around the same price as if you had wooden windows and doors BUT IT WILL NOT LAST.

OPTION 2 Spray Painting standard paint provides a smoother finish and will tend to last a little longer than a brush painted application. You can rent spray guns for DIY or call in a specialist sprayer. As a rule of thumb you can expect the price you pay to a professional sprayer to be about 80% labour and 20% materials.

OPTION 3 The most durable and minimal maintenance is a permanent colour change of the uPVC through a specialist spraying process incorporating molecular colour bonding materials to blend with the pores of your uPVC frames. GET A QUOTE NOW. This is not suitable for a DIY enthusiast and tends to have a material cost of more than 50% of the overall price and less than 50% labour most specialists are in high demand.

All three options are a minor fraction of the cost of replacement windows and doors in a different colour but you should take great care that you are not fooled into paying a similar price for Option 3 as Option 2 !  Always ask for a breakdown of the labour cost.

Option 3 is almost always used by commercial buyers for shop fronts, industrial units and offices and residential home owners that have done there research.
