Can I apply paint on to PVCu windows?

Yes you can, but we would not recommend it. PVCu primer can be applied that makes it easier to paint onto, but note that once it’s been painted, it’s almost impossible to return to original unpainted effect.

Painting or modifying your Bryant and Cairns window products will invalidate your guarantee.

Remember that Bryant and Cairns offer a range of window colours. The coloured finish can be applied to both sides, or just the outside if you wish to leave the internal white, allowing more scope for decorating and finishing your home the way you want it.

Is it possible to match our existing style of window?

Thanks to our wide range of window products, be it a standard casementtilt & turnfully reversible or sash & case window, we can almost always find the right option for you. With a wide variety of colour and woodgrain options thanks to our NEW Prestige range and various options in hardware, we can review every element to find a beautiful and sympathetic solution to fit your home perfectly.

Do you make windows to order?

Yes we do. All of our PVCu windows are bespoke and to your specific requirements. Bryant and Cairns can provide the solution in a range of colours and finishes.

Do you offer double glazed windows with vents?

Yes we do. It is now a legal requirement to have double glazing with vents, so you should be mindful of any organisation not offering this product as standard.

What Energy rating are Bryant and Cairns double glazed windows?

Many window companies lay claim to having ‘A’ Rated Windows when in fact all they offer is Low E glass or triple glazing, so it is important to check the credentials. The only way to check if a window is genuinely  Energy Rated is to check the British Fenestration Ratings Council website BFRC If it isn’t registered……..it isn’t Energy Rated!
