    Can you paint UPVC window frames? 20th Feb 07 at 6:47 PM
    Hi all,
    We are moving into a new house in april, now unfortunately the vendors put in new windows 2 yrs ago and they are fine. But in the lounge they had them made so that the frame is white on the exterior and brown on the interior window and french doors to match the dark wood furniture in the room. Now I don't like this look and plan on having mid to light oak furniture and floor so I think it will look odd!
    Can anyone suggest anything apart from replacing a window and french doors as could do without this expense at present, it was suggested you could paint the frames white is this true and what does it look like?
    Many thanks :confused:
