In this article, we will talk with you about how to paint the slopes on your windows, provided that they are not made of plastic, wood, or metal. We are talking about those putty slopes, regardless of whether they were made of drywall or their cement mixture.
The final decoration of your windows is the painting of the slopes.
By and large, if your slopes were executed correctly and there is no freezing or blowing around the perimeter of the windows, then the paint should not peel off, peel off, etc. If this happens, it means that somewhere you have violated the technological process, or the double-glazed windows installed in your windows are not doing their job well enough, therefore they let the cold through, as a result of which the windows sweat, flow, freeze and, of course, all this affects your slopes.
First of all, the paint on the slopes suffers. It begins to peel off and crack and then entirely fall off or change color.
Further, if nothing is done, then the slopes can become moldy, and as a result, you will need to redo the slopes partially.
How to properly prepare the surface for painting
If your slopes are made according to the technology, you have to perform some actions to prepare the surface for painting.
First of all, inspect the slopes for cracks and other minor defects and eliminate them, as the paint will highlight all the flaws you will not fix before painting.
Next, prime the slopes and let the solution dry. This will form a good adhesion layer that allows the paint to adhere confidently to the surface and not peel off. The primer will remove all construction dust.
Moving on to painting the slopes
So, the slopes are done, the surface is prepared, now we collect the necessary inventory for painting.
You will need
- Brush and roller
- Container for paint
- Molar tape
After you have collected everything you need, you can proceed to paint the slopes.
- Pour the paint into the staining container.
- Apply molar tape along the contour of the window so as not to stain the frames.
- Spread the paint evenly over the roller or apply a small amount to the brush and paint all the slopes from top to bottom.
- If necessary, wipe off the paint from the windowsill, use a solvent.
By and large, painting slopes is no different from the most ordinary painting of walls. The only difference is that it is worth painting the upper slope and the side ones, moving from the top to the bottom.
This work is very simple, and there is no need to hire a specialist for its implementation. It is enough to fulfill all our recommendations independently.
