painting vs foiling window and doors


 paints vs foils for windows and doors

Nw window repairs have spoken about  painting u.p.v.c and hard plastic for years 
and we know just how viable the option is when done right. what I mean is you don't rip a wooden window or door just because it needs a new paint job right ,you paint it and same now goes for u.p.v.c. 
the problem associated to painting plastic its the material it not  porous so it can create a challenges to get the paints to adder to the substrate  and by building up the coats doesn't exactly mean the paint sticks better it just means the paint is getting thicker and if it chip its harder to overcome when repainting.
there are many paints now on the market in local DIY outlets and shops that state they will coat plastic witch they will but for only short periods of time before having to paint again and not necessarily a good option for any external use as weathering is the  foremost best paint peeler out thereon u.p.v.c and water based u.p.v.c paints don't work . . when it comes to painting plastic and u.p.v.c you really need certain alcohols to clean the u.p.v.c and chemicals to create the plastic to become porous and sticky buy melting a thin top layer. this is what the  prepping process is before apply a chemical based paint that will help eat into the plastic creating a chemical bond during its curing process 
the problems with being able to do a good job from a DIY aspect is you cant get they chemicals off the shelf you need some what be able to purchase them with trade accounts etc. you also need to know how to store them as the volatile nature of the chemicals can course issue, and delivery of they products are expensive due to the nature of them  so don't expect a free delivery option 
so you know have al the chemicals needed  you've got the paint your ready paint. no stop . paint brushing wont work by the seconded to third stroke there wont be any bristles left on the brush we ae using a chemical coating remember. so lets think first we need spray painting gun we need air hoses and we need a compressor now you need months of practice setting the gun up and atomising the paint out of it and then you might get a good job without it running  dripping  or feeling like sand paper. 
I get told all the time that looks really easy  my reply is  it is iv been painting plastic for 10 years .
Iv also had I have  got all the equipment but I cant get a good a job  my gun keeps spitting paint can you help ? reply what cfm is your compressor reply err what cfm does the gun need err my reply sorry sir  but you don't the equipment to do the job you need to research the equipment needed
trust me when I say this but all the guys  that works with me on my team  doesn't get any wear near my gti prolight
not for at least 6 weeks with setting up the equipment  correctly 

what about foiling windows

traditionally  foiling window and door are done though hot and cold press machine on the substrate 
before the fabrication takes place and then your really set to the manufactures colour schemes 
witch can the limit the choice the colours available leaving people with white black or grey unless specifically asking for another at witch point the frames are generally sprayed 
and being that painting isn't really for the DIY where does this leave the DIYer without having to take a deep sigh at the expenses of replacement or  professional coating system 

so hearing the question from DIYer how can we change the colour of our window and doors we came up with an answer to it 

DIY foils and wraps specially formulated to adder to any upvc and aluminium windows and door frames 
we have now bought to market the most simplest solution to changing the colour of any existing window and door frame buy simply sticking our foil to your existing window or door you can instantly change the colour or the grain pattern affect instantly with out the or heavy equipment associated to painting 
with 100s of colours to choose from we can almost match any colour of a paint chart 
our foils are the exact same pmma and upvc product traditionally  used on foiled windows  we have slimed down the thickness and applied a high adhesive coating on the back for ease of application  its been tested for uv protection and we give you a 10 year warranty it wont fade in out door elements  and we have made it in to a basic 4 step process
remember this is not a car vynle wrap 
1 clean the window 
2 warm up the frame with heat on low setting  
3 apply foil to desired are and press in to any groove or moulding shape 
4 trim excess 
5 start a new window 

 this new product has given the DIY market a brand new way and the option to change the colour of their windows saving money on tradesmen and if you interested in knowing more about this product then head over to www.windowanddoorfoilsandwraps.co.uk

NW Window Repairs Blog | New Design

NW Window Repairs are constantly trying to improve our customer experience. This year, we have decided to make our website and blog more modern and user-friendly. Find out more about what we have done to achieve this, and what we have in store for 2017.





Written by Quillations on Behalf of NW Window Repairs


Window Repairs New Design


What is Changing?





As we are in a new year, we have decided for a new look across our website and blog. There was nothing wrong with the old style, but we were after a more modern, fresh, and clean look and feel. We want to make our brand stand out from the crowd like our service already does. By re-branding the websites looks, we are hoping to achieve this.

You may find some of our web pages have already started to change looks. We have already updated our Photo Gallery and our main Services pages, which now look similar to the style of this blog post. The changes on these pages compared to the old look is listed below:

* New "Quick Links" help navigation easier, saving our customers time and helping them find what they are after quicker.
* New "Short Descriptions" on our pages, gets to the point quicker, with a "Read More" section to be included for those who want a more in-depth explanation.
* New "Request a Call" button has been added to the Services page on our website, and will eventually be rolled out across each page.


Commercial Website Design
New Website Services Page Design


When will the changes happen?





The Quillations Group are currently working behind the scenes to get our new pages up and running, but this can take time. They are also in the process of creating a new website for us (but more information on this will be provided at a later date!)

Although a time-scale cannot be given at this stage, we will let you know via Facebook and Twitter when each section has been completed - so make sure you follow us today.


What Does this mean for our customers?





The whole reason behind these changes is to help you - our customers - have a great experience from start to finish with NW Window Repairs. We pride ourselves with the service we give when it comes to repairing your windows and doors, and want to spread this service to give you a more user-friendly website, and help make us your first choice for any works you may require.
As always, any feedback you have about our new look will be welcome, so please comment below and let us know!

The Quillations Group may be re-designing our website, but NW Window Repairs can re-design your front door! For more information, check out our previous Blog Post, or visit our Photo Gallery to take a look for yourself.

DIY Letter Box Installation | nwwindowrepairs.co.uk


At NW Window Repairs, we can supply and fit anything which is related to your doors and windows. So if you want a lock, handle or hinge, we can help! Unfortunately some of you may be out of our catchment area, meaning we cannot supply and fit these items for you. Some of you may also want to do some of the work yourself. Below, we talk about fitting your own letter box.

By Quillations on Behalf of NW Window Repairs



Why Tell Us?

Some people may ask why we would share information on how to complete work yourself, as this would seem counter-active to our business. At NW Window Repairs, we understand that a lot of people would rather buy their own letter box, handle, hinge etc, and fit it themselves. We are here to guide, help and advise - as well as carry out the work for those who are not capable themselves. As the saying goes: "just because you know how to cook, doesn't stop you going to a restaurant"!

Is it simple to fit a letter box?

Fitting a letter box can be simple if you are simply replacing an old and broken one. The gap is already there after all! But if you have to start cutting your brand new front door to fit a letter box, then it can get trickier.

The 4 Step Process

There is a 4 Step process to installing a letter box. These steps can be found by visiting a previous Blog Post. It is a simple process to follow, and will make life easier for you. The post also explains how to measure out your door if you do not already have a letter box opening, and the 3 different sizes which are available for you. So please head over to our old post, take a look, and let us know how you get on! NW Window Repairs always appreciates your comments, and we are passionate about our customers and readers - even if you are not in our catchment areas.

Wooden Window Repairs | nwwindowrepairs.co.uk


Wooden windows are rarely seen on modern day buildings, but those of you who are lucky enough to have them, will probably know that they are expensive to replace. At NW Window Repairs, we can solve this problem for you but repairing the problem, saving you time and money.

By Quillations on Behalf of NW Window Repairs



Wooden Windows

As time goes by, wooden windows can become damaged from the harsh weather, leaving them looking tired and out-dated. Some may decide to change the wood to a more modern UPVC composite frame, losing the entire look of the building. They believe that this is more cost-effective than replacing them with a new wooden frame. However, this is not true. Using our specialist techniques, NW Window Repairs can transform your old wooden window frames back to their original glory.

Don't Lose the Look of your Property

By getting a quotation from us, and booking for the work to be carried out, you will be surprised at how we can transform your property back to how it should be.
We do not replace any windows, as we can refurbish the old and original wood, leaving you with money in your pocket, and a property that looks like new - if not better!
So if you want to keep your building looking like it should, then look no further than NW Window Repairs. We can repair your wooden windows at a great cost.
