Paint options

The four stage treatment process

All our windows are finished to an immaculate standard and are spray painted in our factory with four coats of water based paint. By applying four coats of paint our softwood products have a smooth finish and the hardwood products have a wood grained effect. This four stage process consists of:
  1. A fungal preservation treatment
  2. Coloured sealer
  3. Coloured stain or paint
  4. A second coat of stain or paint
The top coat is semi gloss microporous finish. You can choose traditional white or another colour from our RAL colour chart. Your windows will be fully finished with no need to paint, saving you time and money.

Brighten up your home

If you’d prefer a different colour from white then you can choose to paint your windows any colour from the RAL colour chart. The RAL colour chart has 213 standard colours, click here to see them. Sashed also offers a colour matching service to Farrow and Ball’s paint range. See our Farrow and Ball colour matching service for more details.

We also do stains

Sashed offers a range of translucent stains from leading paint manufacture Teknos which add colour to the timber and allows the natural character, grain and beauty to show through. Our principal timbers are pine and meranti; both differ in colour and texture which will change the finished look of the stain.

Want dual colours?

Sashed offers a dual colour service. Choose one colour for the outside of your windows or doors and another colour for the inside. This is great if you want a vibrant red front door but still want a calming white on the inside.

More about water based paint

Sashed use water based paints, which are sprayed onto our products in layers. The use of water based paints for exteriors is now well established thanks to the numerous advantages in terms of life span, their excellent elasticity, and resistance to temperature shift. Not to mention the reduction of solvent emissions into the atmosphere. We do not use oil based paints, as they are not as hard waring as modern water based acrylic paints.
