Zach Clough of Nottingham Forest Football Club (formerly Bolton Wanderers) recently contacted us to spray paint the UPVC windows on his home. Zach wanted to change the colour from white to grey to match the cladding on the upper sections of his home as well as the slate roof. Basically, he wanted to blend everything together.
We met with Zach to survey his home and assess the work required. Zach’s house is a detached property with white render walls and bi-folding doors to the bottom. There are over ten windows, spanning the front, sides and rear of the property. The fascia boards on his house are black while the cladding is also black. Zach wanted to make everything a dark colour, which is how he found our services.
We recommended a few colours on our visit. Zach chose one of our most popular colours, RAL7016 Anthracite Grey (RAL Classic) and a satin finish. Satin has a 30% shine, while matte has a 0% shine. It’s a matter of taste which is best.
We started by cleaning the UPVC thoroughly using a gentle cleaning agent. We do this on all projects so the spray paint has a clean surface to adhere to.
Once we were satisfied the UPVC was clean, we masked off the windows. We do this one side of the property at a time and focus on painting in the same way.
With the masking professionally applied, we got to work spray painting. We use an electric spray painter gun to get the job done, for which we’ve developed our own nozzle system which is proven to deliver a consistent finish. It ensures even paint coverage and eliminates the issue of overspray for a higher quality job every time.
We spray paint UPVC with three coats of paint, allowing at least 30 minutes between each coat or 20 minutes on a warm day. We typically spray paint one window at a time before moving onto the next. This ensures we’re always on our feet and working. We had the first section of Zach’s house completed in a matter of hours.
Due to the size of Zach’s house, this project took us two days to complete. We did one half of the house on day one, and the other half on day two. You could see the difference immediately, with the freshly painted UPVC boasting a glorious finish.
To complete the work, we stripped the windows of old silicone and resealed with a fresh bead of grey silicon. This gives the windows a newly built-in appearance and makes it appear as though they were originally installed in the new colour. Zach is delighted with the new look and we’re delighted with how the project went.
