Is Window Spraying Worth The Cost?

If you own or manage a commercial, industrial or retail property, chances are, you’re no stranger to building maintenance and renovation. With every need that arises, you have to weigh up the value of the work vs the cost. So, if you’re considering updating your window frames, you’ve probably asked yourself; is window spraying worthwhile?

In this blog, we’ll share all the reasons why we think window spraying is a good investment, as well as cover when window spraying isn’t the right solution for you.

What Is Window Spraying?

First things first, what do we mean by window spraying? Well, it’s not the actual window we are referring to, but the frame. Using professional equipment and specialist paint, we can spray paint your window frames to any colour of your choice. 

Window spraying can be carried out on the three main types of window frame;

  • uPVC
  • Aluminium
  • Timber

The process is simple and quick, and leaves your windows looking flawless. But what calls for window spraying – and is it worth investing in?

Your Window Frames Are Ugly

To some, a window frame is a window frame, and it doesn’t matter what it looks like. To others, a faded, greying, or chipped window edging looks ugly and unkempt. If you lean towards the first opinion, here’s why we think leaving your window frames to decline is a bad idea:

Appearance Matters

While you might think no one cares about grubby windows, it’s been proven otherwise. A study found that shop exteriors that were well maintained directly impacted the intentions of customers. And it stands to reason – no matter if your customer base is business to business or business to consumer – you’ll make a better first impression if your exterior is looking tidy.

And window frames usually make up a significant part of that first impression.

A Slow Decline

If your window frames are missing chunks of paint or the surface feels rough to the touch, then they’re not adequately protected. Since your frames have to endure all weather, you can expect that, over time, the top layer or coating will start to degrade. Once that happens, you run the risk of significant damage occurring if left untreated. And trust us, when you’re comparing the cost of window spraying to total replacement, we know what comes in more favourably…

Match Your Brand

The colours available for window spraying mean that you can have window frames that complement the colour of your building (no more boring white!). Or, if you’re looking to really steer into your branding profile, you can have your window frames sprayed in your brand colours.


What’s The Worst That Could Happen?

Well, the world won’t end if you don’t opt for window frame spraying. But that’s not to say that there aren’t some pretty frustrating – and expensive – outcomes if you don’t take care of your windows.

Protect Your Frames From The Elements

While your window frames have been designed to withstand sun, wind and rain, it doesn’t mean that they’re impervious to damage caused by long-term exposure to the glorious British weather.

Frames can last anywhere between 10 – 50 years before they need replacing. You’ll start to notice signs of wear, and you shouldn’t ignore these signs. Make sure to include your windows in your regular maintenance check-up, and look for; 

  • Fading colour
  • Discolouration in white frames
  • Peeling
  • Chipped paint
  • Rust
  • Bubbling paint

These tend to be minor issues that can be repaired and restored by spraying your window frames. However, if your windows are warped or cracked, then you may be too late to save money with restoration work. You may have to bite the bullet and fork out for replacements. 

If you ignore the minor issues, they can become bigger issues. And if you ignore those bigger problems? Well, you run the risk of damp infiltrating your building – and damp in your walls is pretty catastrophic.

It makes sense to stay on top of upkeep with regular maintenance and invest in something that can add years to the lifespan of your window frames. And that something is window spraying.

Window Spraying Is Worth The Cost

In the face of compelling evidence, we think window frame spraying is worth the cost. Not only can you protect and extend the lifespan of your window frames, but you can also add colour and flair to your property. Even if you don’t fancy making a splash with vibrant window frames, you can still smarten up your building with a more traditional shade. Black or white are timeless, while anthracite has become the contemporary colour of choice.

How Much Does Window Spraying Cost?

So, we’ve established that it’s worth the cost – but what is that? Well, we can’t give an exact figure since every quote is different. We have to account for various factors that affect the cost, which include:

  • The current condition of your windows – the more degraded your window frames are, the more prep work we will need to do.
  • How many frames you want spraying – obviously, the more frames you have, the more you’ll pay
  • Where they are located – windows above ground level mean using scaffolding, which adds to the cost.
  • Colour choice – some colours cost more, particularly if they’re less common.

But since it’s helpful to have an idea of what the outlay may be, a ballpark amount is around £150 – £200 per window.

All of our work is carried out to a professional standard. Once complete, you won’t be able to tell that your window frames have been sprayed. The end result is totally smooth with a flawless finish. We also guarantee our window spraying work for 10 years, so you can have peace of mind that your newly painted frames will look good for years to come.
