6. 3 Methods to Achieve Coloured UPVC Windows and Doors
1: Liquid Dip - Coloured UPVC Windows and Doors
Liquid dip is an air-drying rubber coating that is commonly used in the automotive industry. It can be sprayed directly onto plastics such as UPVC and it is flexible and peel-able.
The reason that liquid dip is such a popular choice is that it comes in a can and can be easily sprayed onto any plastic surface.
This would seem especially convenient for people who want to do the job themselves, considering that if you make a mistake you can simply peel the liquid dip away and start again.
However liquid dip is a fairly expensive material, and the finish isn’t particularly attractive – it’s rubbery to the touch and in appearance.
Whilst it is relatively smooth with a professional application, liquid dip isn’t durable and it isn’t resistant to abrasion or friction. This means that for moving features such as windows and doors, it’s a less than ideal option.
When it comes to practicality, aesthetic and longevity – there are much better alternatives.
2: Vinyl Wrap - Coloured UPVC Windows and Doors
Vinyl wrap was primarily used for cars before, recently vinyl wrap for uPVC window frames and windows became a trend. At first glance, it seems to be a legitimate alternative for enhancing the appearance of uPVC.
Many wrapping companies have provided their services to homeowners who want to upgrade and colour change their windows and doors.
Vinyl wraps are applied to uPVC windows with powerful adhesives and are available in a wide range of colours. They rapidly transform the appearance of a property without any of the surface preparation or drying times required for spray painting.
Vinyl Wrap is supplied on rolls and you would need to get the 3M high-quality stuff, which is hundreds per roll! You then have to calculate labour costs and wrapping a window takes around 3-4 hours. So, for example, to transform the windows of a house, it would take around 4 days!
3: Spray Painting - Coloured UPVC Windows and Doors
Having your uPVC window frames, uPVC windows and uPVC doors sprayed will prolong the life of your existing uPVC. Spray painting will also enhance the exterior features of a property and completely transform its appearance.
When applied professionally, high-quality spray paint ensures a long-lasting, even and faultless application that will make your doors and windows indistinguishable from the day they were first installed.
Moreover, spray paint bonds firmly to the surface of the uPVC or any material, so it isn’t affected by movement, weathering or frequent and prolonged usage.
To ensure a flawless, perfect finish, enlisting professional painters is key. Spray painting UPVC is best done by professionals because it requires specialist paints and technical equipment.
Professional spray painting is much more affordable than vinyl wrapping and window replacements.
On average, a professionally sprayed window costs £150, and a door costs around £250. With the method of spray painting, coloured uPVC windows and doors are not limited to a small range of colours.
There is an array of colours to choose from; take a look at our colour charts. The most popular colour choice in 2023, to colour change uPVC windows and doors is Anthracite Grey, with Jet Black now in second place. Anthracite Grey was ranked the most popular colour in 2022 and 2021.
