Buy a 20ft for about 3k.

@Juhniallio ferries boxes of chocolate bars around in a Berlingo, he must be as fat as a Tipperary housewife. 20ft be no use to him.

Have lads here today respraying the external window frames. They said they’d be here at 8am. Got a text at 8.15 saying he’s been here since 7.30 and is working away taping up and is about to start sanding down.
Lad was 3 doors down working away on someone else’s place.

Timber I presume, what with the sanding down…

Has anyone any experience with repainting PVC? Relatively new phenomenon I believe, would suit me as I’m considering a spruce up.

It’s PVC, think it’s a very light sand to get the dirt off them. They did another place in the estate and looks a great job. We moved in recently and they were in good condition just didn’t like the colours.

I’ll let you know how it goes.

Sound…

Any idea if they use a primer on it, or just one application? Spray job?

An obligatory oul before and after shot would be brilliant…

Definitely a primer or some undercoat. Said it’ll be 2 to 3 coats. It was a dark brown colour. Sprayed.
