Step 1:

Prep is hugely important, degrease, thoroughly clean and dry the substrate. If the substrate is flaking or crazing, sand back to a smooth surface beforehand 

Step 2:

Mask-up surrounding areas as necessary and either mask or remove hardware from doors and windows

Apply first coat (primer coat), allow to dry, then apply second coat (deeper colours or transition from very light to dark or visa versa may need an additional coats 

Our front door & garage door bundle includes everything you need to transform your exterior doors and windows. 

 

Top Tips: 

  • If painting uPVC, we strongly recommend an additional primer such as Zinsser Bullseye 123 

  • Make sure the weather will be suitable for the duration of the painting and drying times 

  • For best results, build up thinner coats gradually, don’t slap it on! 

  • Use mohair or 100% wool roller for most of the door and cut-in with a brush for the trickier areas. This will help you achieve a smooth finish with no brush marks.
