Giving your outside window frames a coat of paint can really freshen up the appearance of your home. Here at Thompson & Parkes we have made a step by step guide to smarten up those frames.

Remember to pop in our Kidderminster store, to pick up the tools you need for the job!
Thompson & Parkes Step by Step Guide
Mask around the window to ensure the glass is protected while you paint.
Ensure the surface is clean and dry. Fill any cracks or holes in the frame with wood filler.
Lightly sand the surface to improve the paint’s adhesion.
Apply a coat of primer or undercoat to the entire frame and sill, allow it to dry fully.
Apply each coat of paint with a bristle brush, allowing each coat to dry thoroughly before painting the next.
If you use more than one tin of the same colour paint, check that the batch numbers are the same and stir each tin thoroughly before use.
When you paint your final coat, make sure your brush strokes only go in one direction and you’ll get a neater finish.
