Reply To: Irish say no to PVC windows
It is not a good idea to paint them, unless you want to do it with a spray can, no normal paint for windows would last long.
The smooth surface of the PVC unlike rough wood doesn’t take the paint at all, it is like trying to paint glass.
Coloured PVC windows are made from lengths of PVC that are moulded in that colour usually they look like teak or oak and have a grain effect so you have to be on top of them before you think theyre not teak.
PVC doors are OK for a back door where they aren’t really seen but I wouldn’t recommend them for from doors, the planners usually make problems inside in the main streets of towns with them as well.
I usually recommend Teak front doors with stained glass if the customers can afford them.
