Why Can’t I Paint My UPVC Windows Myself?
- Firstly to paint spray UPVC windows to a professional finish you need to have experience.

The basic principle of painting if not done correctly can cause all sorts of problems with your windows.
Using a paint brush can often lead to brush marks showing in the finished paint layer. Also poor painting techniques can lead to runs in the paint and coating it too thinly which will end up fading.
On the other hand using a paint brush can often lead to overloading it with paint and you can end up with using too much paint.
What are the Stages of Paint Spraying UPVC Windows?
- We mask off the areas not to be painted before painting anything.
We recommend using a high strength adhesive film, designed specifically for glass.
- Clean with chemicals.
We chemically clean the areas to be painted. The specialist chemicals clean away all the dirt and weathering on the UPVC window frames.
Any bricks and other surrounding materials are covered and protected against any overspraying of the paint.
- Add the grip coat.
The very important grip coat which is like an undercoat is applied. It only needs to be thinly added but is so important because the paint uses this to grip to. If not applied properly this can lead to flaking off of the paint in the future.
- Add the top coat.
The top coat will be applied professionally to get a smooth painted finish.
