Don’t mistake UPVC painting for an easy job. It’s anything but. We take great pride in our work and the effort it takes. Spray painting requires good technique for a professional finish. The paint we use is also designed specifically for UPVC. It reacts differently to most plastic paints and requires us to strictly follow the manufacturer’s instructions. If proper technique isn’t followed it’ll run and sabotage the job. Being professionals, this isn’t an option for us.
We are therefore more diligent than most with our UPVC spray painting process, which is good news for customers who want the best finish.Our equipment
After we’ve carefully and thoroughly cleaned the UPVC using a specially prepared detergent, we setup our spray painting equipment. We use a high-performance electric paint sprayer with a unique nozzle setup. We’ve tested hundreds of spray paint machines and our current setup is the best yet. It helps us perfect the UPVC spray painting process.Our technique
We spray paint UPVC from top to bottom, or from one side to the next if the UPVC is horizontal. This prevents running. We apply three coats of paint, each slightly thicker than the last. The first coat can be considered more a ‘dusting’ than a covering. The second coat blends in the first. The last coat is the most important, because it dictates the quality of the finish. Any defects here will show up in sunlight.The finishing touches
We aren’t finished yet! For windows and doors that have had a colour change, we reseal them with a matching colour. We then perform a strict quality check of our own work. It’s only on a rare occasion that the areas we’ve sprayed need extra work. But nether-the-less, if identified, we correct them to guarantee a perfect finish. From start to finish, we turnaround 90 per cent of projects inside a day. So, not only is our UPVC spray painting process thorough, it’s efficient too.
