Today I’m talking to you about Frenchic Paint, after I was sent a tin to try This is a step by step guide to paint your uPVC or Composite doors.
Most new houses have either a uPVC or a composite door. The reason is because they tend to have more endurance and are easier to maintain than the traditional wooden door.
Composite doors are made from a combination of materials, with a solid timber core and coated in glass reinforced plastic and uPVC. UPVC doors are purely plastic. Both doors tend to have a smooth and typically shiny finish (composite doors tend to have the effect of wood grain in them too).
The thing about uPVC or composite doors is that most people assume they can’t be painted, probably because of their shiny appearance. But the thing is, all the doors on our new build estate are the same. I’d assumed to change the colour I’d need to change the door. Enter Frenchic Paint.
I’ve never tried Frenchich paint before; I’ve seen lots of people using it to spruce up their entrances soI thought I’d give it a try.
I used the Black Jack paint from Frenchich’s Alfresco range. I found the paint incredibly easy to use with fantastic coverage. It’s hard-wearing and also waterproof! It’s c£18 for 750ml and you don’t need to do any prep work. There’s no sanding, no priming and no need to seal when you’re done!
