Can You Paint uPVC?
This is the question I get asked most and see most online so I thought I would write this blog to give you some facts. We have been painting uPVC for many years now and is becoming widely know as a much cheaper alternative to replacing uPVC units in your home or business.
Let’s begin with some basic information about uPVC, regular PVC is actually Polyvinyl Chloride and is standard rigid plastic which is lightweight and strong. You could find it is commonly used anywhere. uPVC is much softer and flexible type of plastic because it is hasn’t had plasticizers added. Hence the name UPVC – unplasticized polyvinyl chloride.
What Is uPVC Used For
uPVC comes as standard now in a range of different colours , textures and finishes, including and widely used for windows and doors wood effect finish. uPVC is used as a substitute for wood windows, mainly as mentioned above for external use for uPVC Doors, windows, Conservatories, fascias, soffits and gutters. Most new buildings will be fitted with uPVC double glazed units as standards. People still do used wooden or aluminium windows but it is much more costly than uPVC and they will need more maintenance than uPVC hence why uPVC is the standard material for Doors windows and conservatories.
uPVC Windows and Door Colours
You can buy uPVC windows, doors,conservatories, fascia boards, Soffits and gutters in a range of colours now straight off the shelf which is a far cry from the original white and then then brown wood effect. When people then wanted to change the colour of the uPVC fitted in their home or business they would have to replace the units and go through the hassle and expensive as well as the building work and mess which can disrupt your life considerably. Hence why uPVC Painting has grown dramatically. uPVC Painting is now a much more cost effective and flexible way to change the colour of your uPVC windows, doors,conservatories, fascia boards, Soffits and Gutters and their is a much larger range of colours available.
