Have you thought about a conservatory respray?

The answer is probably no because you thought you were stuck with the colour you have now and would only be able to change it by purchasing new windows and doors for your conservatory. That has all changed in recent years, money and research has been carried out by company’s that manufacture paint to now allow us to safely and effectively change the colour of our Upvc frames and update the look of our conservatories, windows and doors for a fraction of the cost of replacing them with a conservatory respray.

If you have chosen to upgrade your conservatory by adding a tiled roof, then a simple colour change can really make the conservatory stand out and look brand new. If the frames are still in good condition, then a after some thorough preparation, a new coating can be applied professionally using a compressed air spraying set up. A conservatory respray can save you hundreds, possibly thousands of pounds.

So how much does a tiled conservatory roof cost?

As part of our day to day work replacing conservatory roofs to tiled conservatory roofs, we were asked if we could give any advice with regards the Upvc window frames after a new tiled roof install, the answer was always replace for new ones in one of the available colours, not really the answer anyone was hoping for really.

So off we went to see what we could offer as advice or a service to enable a completely different look to just a new roof , fascias and guttering, we needed to find a product that would apply well and last, we found a product called Selemix DTM from PPG Industries to be absolutely perfect for the job.

Conservatory respray conservatory respray

It has a 10 year guarantee against peeling, cracking or flaking, it is designed to stay put. It is available in nearly 30,000 colours and looks fantastic when applied. Some of the RAL colours available are here- colours . Many other colours are available and existing colours can be colour matched to include Dulux, Farrow and Ball etc.

The process is really simple. We apply specific cleaning chemicals and give the framework a thorough clean, twice if necessary before filling any imperfections and then using a mild abrasive pad, give the surface a final rub over. This allows the surface to accept the chemicals in the paint and form a molecular cross bond once applied, before wiping any dust and debris away with a pre-paint wipe. The next stage is to completely mask all areas that aren’t to be painted using masking paper and low tack masking tape.

The finishing touches

Finally, we spray the chosen colour onto the prepared frames, giving two light coats initially before a final third coat to give the depth and shine required. The paint is touch dry within 10 minutes ( weather conditions permitting ) and the masking paper is removed to reveal a transformed conservatory in your new chosen shade before cleaning the glass, masking paper and tidying away.

The finished frames look just like you’d expect them to look coming out fresh from the factory. They will fully cure in a few days and the coating will be like granite and be able withstand everyday minor knocks and scuffs. The sprayed coating will get damaged the same as a non sprayed frame if you are to drop a hammer on it, so it won’t be free from damage over the years, so bear this in mind if you are considering a conservatory respray.

The work can be completed in one day in most instances, so the disruption to you is minimal. So a conservatory respray might be the option whether you have a tiled conservatory roof or not.
