New doors can be a costly investment, especially when they are UPVC! But sometimes you just want a quick fix that will cover any outdated door finishes and give your property a fresh new look.

But did you know that you can transform your front door without having to hire a professional?

With just a couple of cans of Rust-Oleum’s Universal All-Surface Spray Paint, you could give your front door a complete makeover in less than one day – saving you thousands! Plus the Rust-Oleum Universal All-Surface Paint is fade and chip resistant, giving you a long-lasting finish.

If you want to have a go, take a look at Rust-Oleum’s easy guide below.


Step 1

UPVC door 1

Ensure your UPVC is thoroughly cleaned and is free of dust and contaminates then allow to dry fully.

Step 2

Lay down your dust sheets infront of the door, then use masking tape and plastic sheeting to cover any glass and ironmongery and protect it from the spray paint.

Step 3

Carefully apply one to two coats of Rust-Oleum Universal All-Surface Paint. If you get a few drips of paint, then wipe them off and recoat. It’s best to work with lots of thin layers of paint, rather than trying to get a full coverage straight away.
