    Default Do we have any uPVC specialists in the house?

    I've got a bit of a problem with the uPVC door frame. I had a delivery of a large item and it caught the door frame going in and it has taken off the white finish and left black marks showing through from underneath.

    My question is how good is this uPVC paint you can get? (as seen on ebay and various other places). Does it leave a smooth finish like the original or would I be better off going for a spray can?

    I'm trying to leave a finish that would be hard to notice. Gonna throw up a cpl of pictures shortly.

    thanks

    When I go upstairs, I'll text my friend as her parents own their own double glazing firm and he's been doing it as far as I can remember so is pretty good at this stuff.

    upvc is normally white all the way through, your frame looks as its been scufffed/grazed and dirt has got into the scuff
    elbow grease, a sponge or scourer and upvc cleaner (or cif type stuff) should clean it up
