Get Superb Upvc Spraying in 2021?

Spraying refers to the first finish to a bare substrate or material, and respraying means that a surface is being resprayed- to change the colour or to effect a repair, like a car, for example.

 Anyway, those subtle differences dealt with, let’s talk about what can be resprayed around your home and garden.

Most things can be improved by spraying or respraying, but sometimes it won’t be the quickest or most economical way of doing the job, so it isn’t usually considered an option. We’ll run through a few of the frequent things we are asked to spray, and some of the items around your home that you may not automatically think can be sprayed or resprayed. Upvc spraying is one of those things.

uPVC Windows, Doors, and Conservatory Spraying

Windows, doors, and conservatories are great examples of elements of your home that can benefit from a colour change by Upvc spraying.

Having your windows replaced is by no means a small job and, in most cases, reasonably intrusive, so should you be considering a change of frames just so you can get a different or new colour, then Upvc spraying your windows is a must-see option. On the other hand, if your windows are reasonably new, Upvc spraying is the only option unless you have infinite cash reserves!

The above is true for doors and conservatories, too- the savvy people can get the look of 2021 but not pay the price of 2021. Sometimes a property can get all it needs by simply just changing the colour of the entrance door. On the other hand, a respray on a conservatory will knock years of its life if you have a tiled conservatory roof

The advantage of Upvc spraying white windows- sometimes before they are installed- is that you can go for any colour you choose. There is something quite special about uPVC spraying and thinking you’ve got windows in a colour no-one else has likely to have chosen- at least not in your street or town anyway!

Spraying Upvc windows is a massive money saver and absolutely must be considered!

Garage Door spraying

Garages invariably carry the bulk of any colour to the front of your property on the doors or shutters, so it’s vitally important that you look after what you have or consider the change of colour carefully. The doors or shutters will be made from GRP, Metal, Timber, or Plastic coated metal. Each material needs a slightly different approach to the preparation and then the subsequent spraying of the coating.

If you have pressed steel up and over the garage door, any many people still do, it is worth considering the condition of the metal before deciding to get it sprayed; sometimes, the years of minor dings and dents will show up more once the colour has been changed, so respraying the garage door without the necessary filling and preparation work might not be considered money well spent. On the other hand, if you want that work carried out too, then the cost of replacing the door with something more modern might be the better choice in the long term.

We’d expect at least 90% of instances though it would be more economical to respray than replace. For example, a single garage door would cost £225.00 plus Vat.

KITCHEN RESPRAYING

Other than Upvc spraying, kitchen spraying near me is a hugely popular update to your home.

Your kitchen is more than likely the most used room in your home and was probably the most expensive, too, so you will need to be super sure of any changes you make in this area. Swapping a kitchen within at least 5-8 years of it being installed is seemingly very unlikely for most people, but trends and colours move fast!

What are the options, then? Just like uPVC spraying, the shape and space of your kitchen won’t change unless you are considering some serious remodeling, so the only real option is to change the colour of cupboard and drawer fronts, end panels, and maybe even the tiles or splashbacks.

Recolouring an average-sized kitchen isn’t a one-day job- there might well be a few companies out there that say it is, but the truth is, there is a fair amount of prep work that goes into a sprayed kitchen. For example, the masking process alone is likely to take an entire day if done correctly- like sheeting the ceilings and walls to prevent settling overspray.

Just removing handles or knobs takes a lot longer than it should, and removing door and drawer fronts and hinges all take more time, and to respray a kitchen properly, these things have to be done and have to be done correctly.

The two main attributes required for spraying are patience and concentration. Neither of which will be in abundance with a one-day cover over.

Kitchens are a naturally greasy environment; unless they are deep cleaned every month, all kitchens will need some attention hours before the spray equipment comes out of the van, so time is paramount. It just can’t be realistically carried out in such a short time.

The preparation of the existing units is the key to how your new colour will look and how long it will last, so the hours preparing it and not the 30 minutes spent respraying it.

Naturally, there are different options available to suit your ideas and budget, but a one-day transformation for £450 should be avoided at the very least and the same should be said about uPVC spraying.

Internal door spraying

The internal doors in your house take some actual use; you most likely don’t notice them anymore but look closely at a frequently used door. It will be scratched, scuffed, covered in hand and fingerprints, grease, and general grime from the environment. What if they are stained and varnished? What do you do to get them into that Farrow and Ball colour you like? There are hours of work to get them cleaned, sanded down a bit through the grits and grades. You’ve got to take all the furniture off and then have somewhere to roll or brush them and let them dry.

How many coats will it take? What if you don’t like the brush marks- we aren’t all decorators, are we?  How long until they can be handled?

All valid considerations, of course, and if you only have two doors to change, then maybe an afternoon with some sandpaper, degreaser, paint, and roller might be the more affordable way to go.

An internal door is prepared and sprayed by ourselves would be at least £80.00 plus Vat depending on preparation level.

We will make light work of internal doors and get you the colour and consistent finish you need. We can easily accommodate spraying at least ten doors at once at our spray shop in Leicester, so no matte4r how many rooms you have, you can quickly get the same quality on every door.

External Gate Spraying

The external doors and gates aren’t forgotten here; we will happily advise you on the steps needed to achieve a first-class and professional; finish to any doors and gates using only the best quality industrial coatings. We don’t use anything bought from DIY stores; we use specific suppliers like Simply Coatings. They supply consistently high-performing spray applied products that have been researched thoroughly so you can be assured that the final coat is just that, the final coat.

Aluminum profile spraying

Being able to accommodate our trade customers quickly is paramount. They need to engage their customers with quality service and quick turnarounds when they ask for a non-standard colour.

Our ability to be able to spray Upvc or aluminum profile in lengths of up to 7 metres, in any colour, and usually within 24-48 hours means that we can turn the profile around, fully prepped, masked, and resprayed in the fastest times allowing the client more time to complete their manufacturing process.

Bi-folding doors in any colour is a strong selling point, so we have adapted our capacity to accommodate even the most prolonged profiles.

If you have had Bi-Folds fitted recently in Leicestershire or Northamptonshire in an unusual colour, then they may have passed through our hands!

Replacing cladding and aluminum curtain walling can be a costly exercise if you are looking to update your commercial premises, mainly if the property is rented.

First impressions matter in business, a tired and dirty-looking unit will not appeal to potential customers if you rely on their footfall and money to survive. On the other hand, an updated and modern entranceway will make your business look current and encourage customers to come in and spend their money.

Aluminum curtain wall spraying will be at least 50% cheaper than getting new profiles made, and respraying your large roller shutters will be a fraction of the cost of acquiring new ones.

You can call us for a consultation to see if one of our updating packages will suit your needs. For example, we can procure signage, replace glazing, cladding, fascias, and guttering to give you a turnkey solution to bring your commercial property or properties right up to date.

So as you can probably see, we are entirely able to spray virtually anything related to your home and garden and if you have ideas about any of the following, just let us know them, and we’ll try and help you where we can.

Garden furniture spraying, plant pot respraying, garden building spraying, fascia and soffit respraying, guttering spraying, wooden window respraying, hanging tile spraying, render spraying, bin store respraying, mobile home respraying, narrowboat windows, shopfront respraying, or even fridge respraying.

There are a few more in-depth articles elsewhere on the site if you’d like to learn more about a specific project, such as spraying windows grey.

But please consider spraying in 2021 because not only does it save you time, it will undoubtedly save you money for 95% of things that you might want to recolour.

Suppose you have a £30 IKEA Malm bedside cabinet in Beech, but you’d prefer in white now. In that case, this won’t be an excellent example of where spraying saves you money because it won’t be cheaper than buying a new one in white, but a whole house of 13 Upvc windows and 2 Composite doors that you had renewed four years ago in white but now want grey, then spraying will be the only sensible option!
