    Had a look round but unable to find anything. Are you able to repair drill holes left in upvc frames? Previous owner had drilled blinds into them and want to cover them up if possible.

    Thanks

    I've repaired holes the size of golf balls before so screw holes are a doddle, for something that small you could either use a wax repair kit or stelmax pvc filler, you could also just use some screw caps

    I would use wax, kits are made by 'Konig', takes a bit of patience and practice for big stuff but screw holes shouldn't take much
