Since the Victorian period, advances in chemical engineering have made possible types of coating which are, effectively, absolutely different from the lead-based paints of yesteryear. This is a good thing. Likewise insecticide and fungal treatments, if applied before the finishing process begins can significantly prolong the life of joinery subjected to exterior environments.
Paint is another topic that ‘window salesmen’ might wish to discuss at some length; it is, after all, a safe subject. Perhaps our perspective is different to others on this point, effectively we will go to any lengths to prolong the life of the joinery and produce an authentically attractive architectural feature for our clients. It goes without saying that every sash window made here is thoroughly treated before being sprayed with three solid coats of high quality finish. Our standard paint system is Sigma, although we can also offer Remmers as an alternative. All standard RAL colours are available.
