Maintenance Advice

These guidelines will give you advice on redecoration, maintenance cycles, resin-exudation, weather seals, warranties and glass care.

Today’s factory-finished WWA wood windows are low maintenance. A surface coated with a factory-finished opaque system will normally last up to 10 years, depending on the degree of exposure and climate conditions.

Lighter shades (or white) will last longer than darker shades as they provide better protection from the sun’s ultra-violet light.

Similarly, south-facing windows will need redecorating sooner than those less exposed to sunlight.

A surface coated with a translucent system will normally last up to 6 years, depending on the degree of exposure.

Watch our video giving advice on repainting factory-finished windows.
