If, like me, you enjoy a cool beer at the end of the day whilst being sat in your garden, it suddenly dawns on you that your doors, windows and conservatory are starting to look a bit too old. You immediately think that it might just be the time to have them replaced.
However, what you may not know is that this may be a sign of cosmetic wear and tear, which may not mean reduced functionality. On the contrary, your UPVC may be as secure and effective as they were, they are just showing a little bit of wear and tear. If you opt for a complete replacement of UPVC windows and doors it may prove to be a very costly mistake, one that you can avoid.
At Spraylords, we don’t want you to bear the cost of such mistakes when you can avoid them. That is why we have put this post together to explain to you why you should spray UPVC rather than replace.
What is uPVC?
uPVC, short for unplasticised Polyvinyl Chloride, is material that is commonly used to create modern window frames, doors, conservatories and a host of other fittings. Moreover, it is popular for its sturdiness and versatility.
Although uPVC is hard-wearing, it too is prone to cosmetic wear and can fade in the sunlight. However, choosing to rip the whole lot out for a full replacement may not be a good idea. Spraying these windows and doors might be the better option, here are five reasons why.
1. Cost-effective alternative
If you feel like your uPVC doors, windows and conservatories are still working as they should, you can choose to spray them rather than have them replaced. A complete replacement will require you to seek out a windows and door fitting company, have a consultation, flick through brochures and choose brand new and expensive replacements. The UPVC replacement company may help you run down the costs and advise you on what to buy. You should keep in mind that they are not cheap.
Instead, you can choose to spray them, which can be up to 80% cheaper than replacement. Furthermore, it can take you days before you can complete the full replacement. On the other hand, engaging the services of Spraylords will only take a few hours to achieve that new look you are after.
2. You can change the colours
If you want to change the colour of your uPVC windows and doors, you can easily choose to spray them with a different colour. It is an ideal way of switching things up and adding a bit of style to your home. We have a huge range of colours for you to choose from, which we can show you prior to spraying your UPVC.
Spraying your UPVC with different colour schemes can give your home a new, innovative look. Depending on your style, you can go for a bright and bold look or a chilled vibe, depending on how sophisticated or modernised you want your home to look without the need to replace them.
3. Modernise the look of your home
Spraying of uPVC is a quick way of modernising your home. You can trust Spraylords’s specialists to help you with whatever modern look you wish to achieve for your property, regardless of the size or location.
You get to choose from an abundance of colours to spray over the old uPVC. It can come in handy, especially if you want to boost the face value of your home if you’re looking to sell. You will quickly and effectively increase the chances of selling off your home at a higher price.
4. High UV protection for the UPVC plastic
uPVC windows and doors are greatly exposed to direct UV rays from the sun. The hotter it is, the more the intensity of the UV rays. Choosing to replace your uPVC fittings because they have “yellowed” from UV rays may not be the best solution.
Your uPVC windows and doors should be an investment that should last a lifetime if properly taken care of. One of the best ways to do this is by spraying them. When you spray uPVC windows or doors, you essentially add a layer of protection against UV rays. This is especially if you use extremely durable coatings. Furthermore, it will be a fantastic way of increasing the lifespan of your windows and doors.
5. Faster than full replacements
As mentioned earlier, spraying uPVC is not only affordable but faster too. Replacing windows may take days or weeks from starting before completion. If you rely on the services of UPVC spraying specialists, the activity can take merely hours and it will be complete.
Furthermore, the paint is designed to be touch dry very quickly. Therefore, it will be safe to touch after a very short time. Specialist coatings are easily cured even as short as within 24 hours. Therefore, if you are looking to completely revamp the look of your uPVC in the shortest time possible, contact Spraylords today!
Spraying your uPVC rather than replacing them is the cheaper and more cost effective option for your home, leaving you more money to use on other things, like a family holiday for example. You get to choose the colour you want and restore that “factory fresh” look at only a fraction of the full replacement cost. You will save a lot more cash and at the same time give your home that modern and stylish look you’ve been dreaming.
