Home painting of your joinery
It is most important to paint your joinery before installation. This will help to maintain the life of the joinery.
- Remove all hardware especially window fittings and door handles. Carefully wrap them in paper to avoid scratches.
- Remove draught seals with the help of a putty knife or similar.
- Apply knotting before priming ( check with paint supplier)
- Apply end grain sealer ( check with paint supplier)
- Paint all edges, even the ones that you cannot see like glazing rebates, ends of beads, top and bottom of doors. Failure to do this will result in water egress which will swell timber and effect doors and casements being tight and hard to open. It may also break down your double glazing.
- Follow paint manufacturers instructions as some paints and stains need a basecoat or primer.
- Once you have painted your joinery it can then be fitted. Refit seals and hardware.
- It can now be glazzed to fitting guidelines.
- It is recommended that once the joinery is fitted and glazed a final topcoat of paint is applied. This will help seal all the joints.
- Regular maintenance is important to maintain the look of your joinery.

We use Protim in our Prevac Plant
Protim 418 Solvent based wood preservative is ideal for joinery and machined material where dimensional stability is important. This is not to be confused with water based vacuum treatments. It is specially formulated for joinery work, using solvent in place of water prevents grain swelling and is quick drying. This means joinery can be machined before treatment and then glued and assembled soon afterwards. The Preservation process is carried out in a Prevac plant. The timber is loaded into the machine. A vacuum pulls the air out of the timber. The treatment vessel is then filled with preservative. After a few minutes the preservative is removed and a final vacuum is applied to remove the excess protim.
