UPVC spraying takes time and patience to achieve a flawless finish. The end result of the application should be that the material spray painted appears as though it was originally installed in that colour. So, if a house window is being sprayed dark grey, the finish should give the illusion the UPVC is actually dark grey.
Overspray, surface and environmental contaminants and uneven spray application will result in a final finish that’s quite obviously painted which is contrary to what we’re trying to achieve. The only way to eliminate these from the process is to take time with the work and do ‘a proper job’. There are no shortcuts with this.
The UPVC spray painting process involves more than just painting. We’ve got to clean the surface, mask it, prep it and only then can we paint it.
It’s impossible to say how long UPVC spraying takes per window or door because these come in an unlimited range of sizes. What we can say is one window or door is typically paintable in under an hour and a half. That includes three coats.
If you multiply that number by the number of windows and doors you have that need painting, you’ll find that the project will take around a day to complete. That’s typical for a 3-bed semi-detached house. Larger houses can take up to two days.
Speeding up the process
While we can’t speed up the painting process (paint has to dry before we can apply another coat) what we can do is work on more than one window at once.
This is achieved by our team. In other words, we’re not a one-man band. We operate a skilled workforce who have many years’ experience. Depending on the size of your home, a team of two or more of our professionals will turn up on the day.
Having operated in this industry for such a long time, we have our spraying down to a fine art form. We have a structured process we stick to, and that process requires us to work hard and continuously (with the odd break) to see the job through on time.
It’s important to remember that all quotes are not time-based. We quote per window and door, so if something comes up (such as really shocking weather) and we’re forced to down tools for a few days, that won’t affect what you pay for your UPVC spraying.
