When it comes to selling your home, nothing turns potential buyers away more than a shabby house. The fact is that unless you’re selling a doer-upper, the external appearance of your house will be under close scrutiny.
UPVC windows and doors are one of the most overlooked aspects of a property before listing it on the market. You see your windows and doors every day so you get used to them, but they could be in worse condition than you think.
The most common issue with UPVC is discolouration. This happens over time as a result of resins in the UPVC being tainted by UV exposure.
Thankfully, you needn’t replace all your windows if you have this problem. You can instead have them professionally spray painted. This will cover up the old UPVC and protect it from further discoloration at 30% of the cost of replacement.
Another benefit to UPVC painting is you can change the colour of your UPVC to change the character of your house in a significant way.
White UPVC has become less fashionable with the rise of grey UPVC windows, which most people agree look classier and more upmarket.
You can change the colour of your UPVC across your house, including the windows, sills, doors, gutters and cladding. You can also have your garage door painted. This enables you to significantly boost the kerb appeal of your house.
Cost and time
It takes only one working day to spray paint the UPVC on most houses although larger projects, like conservatories, can take two days.
The average price to spray paint a UPVC window is £210 including VAT, and the average price to paint a UPVC front door and frame is £280 including VAT. In total, the cost to spray paint a whole house comes in at £1,200 to £2,000.
