How To Paint PVC Windows and Doors

Before I begin telling you what I did, let assure you that PVC can indeed be painted and YES it does last. This was the most popular question asked when i started doing this project over on instagram stories a couple of weeks ago.

Step 1 …. CLEAN

For this used washing up liquid and water on the back door ( it was filty) and a mix of methylated spirits ( denatured alcohol is another name for it) and water 50/50 mix in an old shower bottle. I just sprayed it all over the window frame and wiped with a sponge. Then i dried it off with some kitchen roll.


As you will see in the video below i lightly scratched up the surface to help the primer stick. Use a medium grade sandpaper for this.


For this I used washi tape and here is the link to that product

Step 4 …. PRIME

This is the important bit. You must use the RIGHT products on PVC or you are not going to get the adhesion you need. The primer I used is HERE.. its Bloxx it from Fleetwood Paints

Its known as the primer for difficult surfaces like laminate , PVC and for its blocking qualities. So if you have a water mark on your ceiling or walls, or a painting raw pine with knots that will bleed through water based paints, then this is the primer you need

BLOXX-IT Primer/ Sealer 1L

I applied the primer with a flawless microfibre roller on the door and a 20mm cut in brush on the window. Both of these should be in your kit as they are essential for applying the primer and keeping it FLAT> this primer is oil based and not as easy to use as a water based version but it has the best adhesion you can get !


Step 5… PAINT

The paint I used is the ADVANCED SATINWOOD from Fleetwood Paints and the colour is Shabby Lucky Duck . This is one of the colours from my own range for Fleetwood and if you would like to check out the colours click here

I rolled on two coats of paint  with another micro fibre roller ,but this time i used a better quality cut in brush. It is the same size 20mm but its a softer bristle and helps the paint glide on, as you will see in the video below. Here is the link to that brush

As always i line my trays with tin foil so i dont have to wash them out afterwards. I am all for time saving tips ! And i also wrap my brushes and rollers in tin foil when i am keeping them for the next day. You will see this in the video too.

Now its up to you. Here is a link to the PAINT YOU PVC DOORS KIT giving you all the products you need.
