Most modern homes and properties are designed with the very latest technology in mind and uPVC, or unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride, is one addition that is present in many of the fixtures and fittings in your home. It is a tough and long lasting material that can withstand various environments and weather conditions and can be styled in a variety of different colours and finishes with the aid of professional uPVC spraying. So what exactly is uPVC Spraying and what are the benefits of giving your windows, doors and other fittings a new look?
uPVC fittings such as windows and doors come in a plain white finish as standard but can be customised to have different colours and finishes with uPVC spraying.
uPVC Spraying – What Is It?
uPVC spraying refers to the process of applying a specialized paint or coating onto uPVC surfaces and material, which are commonly found in windows, doors, and other exterior fixtures around your property. The process is usually achieved using a high-quality paint sprayed from a specialised paint gun. The process is usually repeated in multiple layers and can form a waterproof, damp-proof and mould resistant seal around your windows and doors, providing it with enhanced protection.
uPVC Spraying – What Are The Benefits?
There are many benefits for applying specialised paint onto uPVC surfaces with uPVC spraying, here are some of them for you to consider:
1. Aesthetic Appeal
uPVC spraying allows you to completely transform the appearance of your uPVC windows, doors and fixtures. The standard colour that is usually present is plain white and sometimes over time this can slightly fade, giving the surface an aged look. You can always remedy this by choosing from one of the many different colours and giving your windows and doors a fresh, modern look that matches your personal style and complements your property detail.
The different variety of colours and finishes available for uPVC spraying opens up the door for plenty of customisation. Whether you are looking for a uniform style or alternating patterns across your build in one or more finishes, uPVC spraying allows you to achieve the exact look you desire.
3. Cost-Effective Alternative
Replacing uPVC fixtures such as windows and doors with like for like or different replacements can often be an expensive and a time consuming process, both in terms of sourcing the materials needed and also the manufacturing and installation process. Utilising uPVC spraying on existing fixtures costs a fraction of the price it would to undertake a full replacement and can make your windows and doors appear brand new and in the style of your choice.
4. Eco-Friendly Option
By opting for uPVC spraying, each layer is actually reducing the amount of waste compared to getting a complete refit done. This is because making the new uPVC fixtures requires a huge amount of energy and heat to get the finished product. The spraying process uses little no heat and quickly bonds to the surface material, rather than float around in the air.
5. UV Protection
uPVC spraying material often involves the application of specialised layers of coating that offer protection against ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. UV rays can cause fading and deterioration of these surfaces over time, so a specialised coating can help preserve the appearance and structural integrity of the fixtures.
6. Weather Resistance
The coatings used in uPVC spraying are designed to withstand various weather conditions such as rain, hailstones, snow and extreme levels of sunlight. The enhanced resistance to various types of weather can prevent discolouration, peeling, cracking and much more, resulting in fixtures that have a much longer lifespan.
7. Low Maintenance
The coatings applied with uPVC spraying are generally easier to clean and maintain than their traditional counterparts. The special coatings can easily repel dirt, grime and stains, reducing the frequency and effort required for cleaning. They are also highly resistant to wear meaning even the strongest cleaning agents cannot dissolve the coating.
8. Quick Application
The layers of paint that are applied during uPVC spraying are highly effective at sticking to the material and can dry very quickly, allowing you to continue using your windows, doors and other fittings after only a few hours of a new application.
9. Increased Property Value
Enhancing the appearance of the exterior of your home through uPVC spraying can have a positive effect on its aesthetic appeal and help to appreciate the overall value. If you are planning to sell your property this can be an advantageous feature.
10. Non-Intrusive Process
Unlike replacing uPVC windows and doors, the process of uPVC spraying is non-intrusive. This means that no fixtures or fittings have to be removed or replaced. Instead these can be left in place and simply sprayed over multiple times to get the desired finish with the correct number of applications and layers. This allows you to get on with your routine and reduce the mess that would otherwise be associated with labour and construction work.
In conclusion uPVC spraying is a cost-effective and stylish option if you are looking to give your windows, doors, fixtures and fittings a brand new lease of life, all while on an affordable budget.
