Why Choose Window Aid?
Having decided on changing the colour of your old PVC window and doors, you now have to find a company you can trust to give the service you're after. Looking for a company that will spray double glazing is a challenge in itself, so here are some helpful pointers:
- Do they use Kolorbond uPVC specialist paint?
- Do they remove the glass, gaskets and sashes from the frame?
- Are they Checkatrade, Which or Trustatrader registered?
- Have they a checkable photo gallery (not just copied from the internet)?
- Do they have a manufactures 10 year guarantee, not to flake or peel?
- Do they hold the approved Kolorbond applicator certificates?
Window Aid provides all the above and more
We offer a uPVC spraying service that we believe is second-to-none.
Before respraying PVC, we strip down the window and doors to remove glass units, gaskets, handles, locks and opening sashes. Other companies will just mask up the glass and spray.
The Window Aid uPVC Respray Process
1. CLEAR AREA & PROTECT
Care is taken to make sure plants and shrubs are protected from overspray or big boots. Inside, the window/door opening is sealed off using plastic sheeting, minimising any fumes and stopping overspray.
2. STRIP DOWN & REMOVE
Glass is removed, gaskets are taken out, window handles and door furniture are removed. The trim around the frame may need to be removed if the original fitters have been over enthusiastic with the silicone.
3. CLEANING & FRAME PREPARATION
This part of the process has to be very thorough. Frames are cleaned using a specialist degreaser, then a product is applied that will prepare the frame for the paint, chemically bonding the two together.
4. MASKING OFF
This is very time consuming, but necessary to provide that new and crisp-edged finish.
Brickwork and any surrounding surfaces need careful masking or covering to ensure paint only goes where intended.
5. READY TO START SPRAYING
We now apply your chosen colour. This is sprayed in three light coats, which allows a smooth, even coverage.
The paint is touch-dry in 10 minutes and will be fully cured within 24 hours, meaning your windows and doors aren't out of action for long.
6. PUTTING IT ALL BACK TOGETHER
Now for the exciting part, we can put everything back together again.
Sashes are fixed back into the frame, gaskets installed, glass units put back in place and glass cleaned.
7. FINISHING TOUCHES
Your windows or doors will now look like brand new coloured units.
Any trim used will be colour matched to frames.
We'll even colour match the silicone beading, to ensure a top quality finish.
8. AND FINALLY...
We can provide the finishing touches: replacement handles, letterboxes and door furniture.
This all adds a bit of sparkle to your newly sprayed windows and doors.
Why we do what we do: REPAIR, REVIVE & REUSE.
Latest research shows that uPVC windows can last 35yrs+. The auxiliary parts like hinges, locks, seals and glazing units have a shorter lifespan. The good news is these parts can be serviced or replaced at a far lower price than total replacement.
Apart from the high cost of replacing uPVC windows and doors with new, there is the environmental issue of what happens to the old double glazing.
Only around 3% of PVC is recycled according to the latest Green paper report and then the strange thing is another report states that PVC remains inert for hundreds of years in landfill sites. Then there is the energy it takes to either manufacture or recycle which can also create more pollution. So this is where we come in, by providing a complete repair, revive and reuse double glazing care package.
We can help your double glazing last way past the 10-15 year throw away period, the usual lifespan recommended by the window replacement industry.
