Upvc windows/doors painting business?

Recommended Posts

I’m a window fitter and have been doing it for 20 years I have seen some of these paint jobs and the amount of time people have to go back to them the problem is it’s like plastering the sealant part of the fitting is a technique and people think ahhh abit of silicone how hard can that be but it’s not as easy as you think the other part is I’ve seen this time and time again what when you go to spray someone’s windows and say there white and they have white Georgian bar inside the glass units this looks rubbish once the windows have been sprayed as the bar no longer matches as a fitter I’d never even look at sprayed windows the amount of people I’ve been to and ripped them out months after they have been sprayed I think it’s a dying trade before it’s kicked off but I could be wrong just think about all the different bits spraying is an art to get it right you’ll have to take all the silicone out to make sure you spray right up to the edge of the frame then go back once it’s dry to re seal it all if someone has old windows they may aswel just replace them has to be more cost effective as they have no more guarantee with them hardware starts to fail I think it would be a good idea if it’s just a quick way to say tart a property up before selling or renting etc make it abit more appealing but that’s all I think it’s good for but as I said I could be wrong so the best of luck to you.

 

Even without any punctuation that seems to make a lot of sense to me!

I personally would look into the process. The products we use chemically bond to the upvc. We have samples your more than welcome to take a look at. We offer 10 years adhesion and 5 years fade guarantee.

There are also a few companies out there that will vinyl wrap upvc windows and doors, but not sure if there is anyone in Sheffield doing this. I had a company from Stockport come and rewrap my kitchen in grey, they also do windows. I may be interested in the painting if it was very durable.
