Recolouring UPVC windows is possible with spray painting. If your white UPVC windows have yellowed or your black, brown, or grey windows have dulled and look old, spraying is the best and most affordable way to recolour.
UPVC windows change colour usually as a result of overexposure to UV light. The sun emits this powerful light source all the time. Prolonged exposure causes the molecular bonds of the UPVC to break down. When this happens to enough molecules of colouring agent, it no longer interacts with light in the same way. As a result, the colour we see is duller because it transmits less light. This cannot be remedied on a molecular level.
Some UPVC colours fade faster than others. Brown is usually quite resistant, but white and black windows do fade after ten to fifteen years.
Old UPVC units also tend to only have a top layer of plastic which is coloured. Nowadays, UPVC is more resistant to fading because the colour permeates throughout the plastic instead of just adhering to it. Regardless, the surface still fades if exposed to UV light over enough time. Time is the enemy of UPVC.
A simple and cost-effective solution to recolouring UPVC windows is spray painting which covers the UPVC surface with UV resistant paint. This is a good way to protect the windows from further UV exposure and get a brand-new look.
