How do I paint my PVC windows a different colour?

We recently bought a house and we don’t like the exterior dark brown PVC windows, is it possible to paint them white?

Yes it is possible to change the colour of your PVC windows. I would recommend following these steps in order to achieve the best results:

  1. Cover all ground areas with dust sheets and tape where they’re needed
  2. Clean and de-grease the PVC windows with Fluxaf Cleaner
  3. Lightly sand the area with a fine grade sponge sander & dust down all window surfaces
  4. Apply two coats of Ralston All Prime and leave windows to dry overnight
  5. Apply two coats – we recommend either Ralston Aqua Satin or Ralston High Gloss in whatever colour you wish – and leave the windows dry overnight
  6. Open the windows for a couple of hours each day for a few days so the paint on the PVC windows can thoroughly harden.

Recommended Tools:

  • Wooster Brushes, Corona or Wooster 4” Sleeves
  • Deltec Gold Masking Tape 1.5” (if required)
  • Harper & Green Floor Protector
