Timber windows will outlast every other type of material that can be used for windows, if maintained. And to look like new again – just apply a new coat of paint or stain! For repainting our windows and doors we recommend Sikkens Filter 7 for maximum protection. This product is available in many different colours and woodstains. Before repainting, the old coat only needs to be sanded with light sandpaper (220 grit) so that the new coat can key to the old coat. After that the new Sikkens paint can be applied with a brush. Important: you do not have to sand down to bare timber as Sikkens products do not flake like some other products!
