Yes, we can paint UPVC Doors!
One of the most common questions regarding uPVC fixtures is whether it is possible to paint a door made from uPVC – in other words, “can you paint uPVC doors?”
The answer to that question is a definite “Yes” – in fact, it is our speciality here at The Restoration Group! Spray Painting uPVC is what we do, from Blackpool to Liverpool and from Warrington to Manchester, our team of experts have been repainting uPVC fittings for more than 20 years.
Can you paint uPVC doors like you would paint a regular door?
Painting uPVC doors is not as simple as buying a tin of paint and then brushing or rolling it on. To get an optimum, long-lasting finish on your uPVC doors, you will need to hire a specialist uPVC spray painter, who knows how to properly prepare the door as well as knows how to correctly apply your chosen paint colour in a way that gives your whole house a refreshed and rejuvenated look.
At The Restoration Group, when we are painting uPVC doors, we use a specific painting process and uniquely formulated uPVC paints to achieve the perfect results and provide you with uPVC doors that you can be proud of! Before even picking up a sprayer, our painters undergo intensive training and are fully insured, to make sure that they are experts in their field and are skilled enough to give your home your desired look.
A free home consultation will help them figure out exactly what you need and the results you want, so they can tailor their approach to suit that. It will also give you the chance to consult with them over which colour paint you would like them to use on your uPVC doors.
How are uPVC doors painted?
The Restoration Group team use a tried and tested process to successfully paint your uPVC doors.
Upon arrival, our team firstly prepare and protect the area around your uPVC door with drop sheets and other guards. They also clean the uPVC with special cleaning agents, before running a gentle abrasive over the uPVC to make sure the paint can bond properly to its surface. Any glass within the door and other fittings are also covered and protected.
The next step is to mix a unique paint formula – the colour agreed upon with our customer – and then spray it on with specially-designed uPVC spraying equipment. Our technicians will always apply at least three coats of uPVC paint, though sometimes more layers are applied depending on the colour you have chosen.
After that, usually around half an hour after the last layer of paint has been applied, quality control and a thorough clean-up ensures you are left with a painted uPVC door that looks good as new! Our team uncover and unmask any glass in your uPVC door to complete its transformation.
What is uPVC?
Un-plasticised Polyvinyl Chloride, also known as uPVC or PVCu, is a type of plastic which is water resistant, rigid and requires little maintenance. It is commonly used to create uPVC doors, windows and other fittings. Although normally first produced in white, firms like The Restoration Group are painting uPVC doors in colours mixed to suit the requirements of homeowners across the North West.
Can you paint uPVC doors in any colour?
Yes, you can! Painting uPVC doors in the colour you desire has never been easier thanks to The Restoration Group. Our paints can be blended in any colour you want, so no matter your vision for your home, you can achieve it with us. Your uPVC door is a blank canvas for you to paint in whatever colour you want!
Why paint a uPVC door?
uPVC is a tough, long-lasting material, resistant to the elements and good for insulating your home in even the coldest weather. This same resistance makes it hard to paint or change the look of, and even harder to replace. A new uPVC door is likely to be a costly investment, without even considering fitting costs and the removal of the original uPVC door.
By opting to paint your uPVC door instead you can change the appearance of your home at fraction of the cost with our respray saving you up to 80% against the cost of a full door replacement. Painting uPVC doors is the perfect solution as by doing it you can also restore tired-looking and aged uPVC to its former glory and add years to their lifespan to your door with a well-applied coat of uPVC spray paint.
