How To Prepare Your Wooden Window Frames For Painting

Sanding A Wooden WindowRemove the window furniture and store in a safe place.

We recommend always sanding the wood before application of any paint / stain. Sanding wooden window frames will allow the wood to open up. Sanding old window frames will also provide a ‘key’ on the existing coating if present.

After sanding window frames for painting, use a damp cloth to pick up any loose dust.
