Here at Kolorseal, we started out colour coating PVC-U window frames, doors and conservatories back in 2004, meaning we’ve had a long time to refine our spraying processes. Today, we work from 5 purpose built colour coating booths – we can also provide spray coatings for windows and doors on-site. We offer bespoke colour coating for a wide range of upvc windows, doors, composite doors, rooflines and rainwater goods. We can also colour coat aluminium and glass products. When we say any colour in 5 days, we mean it.
