Why Choose We Spray?

The last ten years have seen a rise in the popularity of UPVC spraying. There is no need to replace your windows and doors if they are looking worn out if the current hue is no longer in style, because a simple respray will restore their brand new appearance. It is not only UPVC that can be sprayed but also aluminium, composite and wood.

Whether you’re are selling your home and need to modernise or you just want to improve the kerb appeal of your house, UPVC spraying is a cost effective solution that also saves time and mess.

There are times that windows and doors may need replacing due to damage or you may need to add new with an extension however you wouldn’t need to replace all of your windows as they can also be sprayed to match the new windows.

Why Choose Respraying Over New Windows?

Cost Effectiveness

Window spraying is incredibly economical, saving about 80% compared to purchasing new windows and doors. Even more cost-effectively, you can choose to have your gutters, soffits, and fascias painted simultaneously to save thousands over purchasing new.

An average house spray takes around 1–2 days. Larger house sprays can take longer however it is always considerably less time and hassle than getting everything replaced.

Minimal Disruption

When work is done, there is always the concern that it might actually harm other parts of the house and produce a mess that takes time and effort to clean up.

When choosing a respray with us, you can be confident that all rubbish will be cleaned up, taken away, and the places where we’ve worked will be left in the same condition as when we found them.

Limitless Colours

When buying new windows and doors you have to choose from a set range however when getting your windows sprayed, you can choose from any colour. You might have seen a colour in the Farrow and Ball or Dulux range you love or you may have an item in your house that you love the colour of and that’s no problem. Most things can be scanned to gain a match.

The most popular colours are from the Farrow and Ball range and also the standard RAL chart.

Permanent and Long Lasting

UPVC spray is extremely robust if applied professionally and in the correct weather conditions. When choosing a UPVC spraying company, always look for a company that offer a 10 year guarantee on workmanship, not just the paint. The key to the success of a job is all down to the preparation completed before the spraying has even began. The silicone must always be removed and the surfaces need to be immaculate and keyed before the three coats of paint are applied.

If you choose the correct company then the sprayed UPVC will last for a very long time.

The Window Respray Process

When spraying windows the following process is undertaken:

  1. Any existing silicone is removed.
  2. All windows are opened so the lips and edges can be sprayed.
  3. The surface is scotched (keyed) to ensure the coating will bond into the surface as opposed to sitting on top of the surface. This is one of the most important parts of the process.
  4. All glass and surrounds are masked so the spray only covers the intended surface.
  5. The surface is then cleaned to ensure that there is nothing that will interfere with the bond and blow off any dust that has gathered.
  6. A dust coat is applied first which will show if there is anything has been left on the surface when scotching and cleaning.
  7. A further 2 fine coats will be applied which will bond into the surface.
  8. If silicone was removed, new silicone will be applied.

DIY Window Painting

We have come across lots of people since lockdown who decided it was a good time to paint their windows or doors themselves and although they looked great at the time, there aren’t many success stories in the long run.

Once these items have already been painted it makes the surface unreliable therefore we cannot guarantee any coating that is applied afterwards.

DIY window painting usually results in chipping, peeling and flaking and this is because the paint is inferior and the preparation hasn’t been completed properly.

It is a time consuming job and it is difficult to get professional results when completing it yourself.

How to Choose a Good Spray Company?

When choosing a company to spray your home you need to ensure the following:

  1. The company is reputable and has real reviews across multiple sites to refer to. We have over 500 five star reviews across Facebook, Google and Trustpilot.
  2. The company has been trading for a reasonable amount of time and hasn’t changed their name in the past. Always make sure the firm doesn’t have a history of using different names, since this could indicate that they have either struggled to build a successful business or have previously received negative customer feedback, forcing them to change their name.
  3. The company offers a realistic guarantee. The guarantee should be with the company, not the paint manufacturer. The guarantee should be on the workmanship as well as the paint. The key to successful spray is the preparation.
