- uPVC installer advice please
A dark blue Virtuoso door on dark blue 70mm Duraflex frame and side panel is winging it’s way to oab_towers.
We’ve ordered via a trade place and a neighbour is fitting with us.
The fitter is saying to order two lengths of textured trim (we’ve 60mm at head to bridge) and he spray paints to the matching colour. Is this right – do they just paint door and frame? If so, would the manufacturer not just regularly supply a few trim pieces?
Where can I get dark blue sealant? – this is only for the head of the door trim, the rest will either be clear of black or dark grey.Posted 1 month agosandboyMember

I might be wrong here but I think that all UPVC is white with a coloured film applied if required.
(kinda makes sense…. I can’t image upvc manufacturers producing all the colourways available) We renovated a little house and installed grey windows from a fairly big trade supplier – the grey was a wrap and they supplied a touch up pot to fix scratches.
If this is the case take care with your blue door as the white may show through if it’s scratched.

Got to ask…. why didn’t you get a door/frame made to fit the opening?
Re the sealant, I think I’d go with the dark grey….. no-one looks at the top of the door frame anyway!Posted 1 month agoMrSmithMember
Re the paint thing. Friends of mine have just had all their UPVC windows painted anthracite grey. They were sprayed and look great. Evidently there is a zinniser product that’s good but the sprayer said there was another product that lasts even longer but not cheap at £40/L which they went with.Posted 1 month ago
Any decent DIY shop should have frame sealant in different colours.
