    Hello all!

    We have moved into a house with mahogany UPVC window and door frames, which we are not too keen on and would like to paint them white.

    I see that both Ronseal and International do undercoat/paint for UPVC.

    Does anyone have any experience of using these products? Were they successful?

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Take a closer look at the finish
    You may find the mahogany ones have a wood grain effect which will result in a great deal of difficulty in painting these as the only finish is via airgun which could result in runs and the grain being highlighted.
    Best save up and get em removed or live with em i would say.
