Painting uPVC doors – the pros & cons

Change is something to be embraced, not shied away from and most homeowners are always looking for ways to freshen their home. A survey carried out by Hiscox found that 15% of homeowners have elected to improve their existing home rather than moving. There’s a huge market in the UK for homeowners looking to update their home. And the proof is in the numbers with home improvement stores estimated to have annual revenue of £12.5 billion.

Can you paint your uPVC front door?

Giving the walls a fresh coat of paint is a popular home improvement choice amongst most people. But can you do the same with your front door? Yes, and there’s an infinite array of paint options to choose from, but it’s not something you want to do without having done your research.

In theory, it’s a quick solution, but if you were already thinking that your door is older maybe it’s a good time to consider replacing with a brand new one with the colour of your choice!

We’ve compiled a list of pros and cons to see if this project is for you.

As around 4 coats, including a layer of primer, will need to be applied to the door, be sure to check the weather forecast to avoid your handy work being ruined by a downpour. Chat to your local home improvement retailer to make sure that you get the right paint for the job.
