Spray Painting UPVC Windows – Know Before You Go

Are you looking to add a modern and stylish touch to your UPVC windows? If so, spray painting is an easy way to do just that. Learn how to complete a professional window makeover with this guide to UPVC window spraying.

MAKE SURE THE WINDOW IS CLEAN AND FREE OF GREASE

Before starting, ensure that your windows are thoroughly clean and free of grease, dirt and dust. Grease can cause the paint to not adhere and any dust will show up in the final coat of paint. Use a powerful pressure washer to give the windows a good clean, then apply a spirits-based solution and wipe down with a lint-free cloth for best results.

CHOOSE A GOOD QUALITY PAINT FOR UPVC

It’s essential to choose a good quality paint for spraying UPVC windows. Use an acrylic based exterior wall paint or a specific plastic paint for UPVC, both of which are designed to withstand the harsh weather conditions. Pick up your chosen paint in the same color as your window frames, or get creative and go for something different. When using multiple colors, remember to always start with the lightest shade first and build on it from there.

MASK UP YOUR WINDOWS TO AVOID OVERSPRAY

To achieve a professional finish, you must mask up around the windows using newspaper and masking tape. Mask off everything to protect against overspray including carpets, furniture and walls. Start by covering the glass with newspapers and continue until you have completely covered your window frame. Once all the surfaces are protected, you can start spray painting. Make sure that you paint in a light back-and-forth motion – only apply thin layers of paint and allow them to dry before applying any more layers.

APPLY PRIMER OR UNDERCOAT BEFORE PAINTING

Before you can start spray painting your window frames, it’s important to apply a primer or undercoat. This will help promote adhesion and ensure that the paint is even and effective. If you’re using a solvent-based paint, make sure to wait 48 hours before applying the aerosol paint as solvents generally take longer to dry than paints. Apply a thin coat of primer and let it dry completely before spraying on the paint – this will help ensure smooth coverage and ensure there are no extra brush marks when finished.

FOLLOW THE MANUFACTURER’S INSTRUCTIONS FOR APPLICATION AND DRYING TIMES

Painting your UPVC window frames yourself is a great way to save money, but it’s important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for how long to allow the product to dry before and after application. This will reduce the chance of any problems or mistakes occurring during the process. For best results, use an aerosol spray paint that is specifically designed for use on plastic surfaces, and then wait patiently until the times specified by the manufacturer before applying further coats or varnish.
