Should I spray my uPVC?

Deciding whether to spray or replace your uPVC windows and doors depends on various factors. Here are some considerations to help you make an informed decision:

  1. Condition of uPVC: If your uPVC frames are in good structural condition, with no major damage or warping, then spraying could be a viable option to refresh their appearance.

  2. Cost: Spraying uPVC is generally more cost-effective than full replacement. If your budget is limited, spraying might be the more practical choice.

  3. Aesthetics: If you are unhappy with the colour of your uPVC frames and want to change it, spraying allows you to achieve the desired colour without replacing the entire frame.

  4. Performance: uPVC is known for its durability and energy efficiency. If your current uPVC windows and doors are functioning well in terms of insulation and security, spraying them can be a way to enhance their appearance without sacrificing performance.

  5. Longevity: Properly sprayed uPVC can last for many years and maintain its appearance. However, if the uPVC frames are significantly aged or have underlying structural issues, replacement might be a better long-term solution.

  6. Environmental impact: From an environmental standpoint, spraying could be considered a more sustainable option as it reduces waste by not discarding the entire uPVC frame.

  7. Warranty and guarantees: When considering spraying, ensure that the service provider offers appropriate warranties or guarantees to safeguard against any issues with the sprayed uPVC.

  8. Personal preference: Ultimately, your decision might come down to personal preference. If you have a strong desire for a completely new look or improved features, replacement might be the better choice.

In summary, if your uPVC frames are in good condition, and you want to improve their appearance without significant costs, spraying can be an excellent option. However, if the frames are old, damaged, or if you seek performance improvements, replacing them with new uPVC windows and doors might be the better solution. Always consult with professionals to assess the specific condition of your uPVC frames and get their expert advice on the best course of action.
