Teknos of Finland is one of the leading European providers of water-based timber coatings, which is why we use Teknos microporous paints as standard for all replacement joinery and as part of any repair or restoration service.
The Teknos coatings use a resin system, which results in a flexible, durable and breathable finish, allowing the timber to move naturally through the seasons whilst minimising the cracking and peeling associated with traditional solvent-based coatings. Furthermore, these coatings provide a bacterial, mould, and UV resistant finish to ensure a healthy lifespan and long-lasting finish.
All of our new joinery receives two spray-finished undercoats of primer to enhance adhesion for subsequent coats, and two spray-finished topcoats to provide a strong, yet flexible, microporous surface which is crucial to the longevity of your windows and doors. As an added bonus, Teknos microporous paints are available in over 200 RAL colours, so you’ll be spoilt for choice!
We use RAL9016 as standard, but if you’re interested in getting a different colour for your windows, either two-tone (a different colour on the inside than on the outside) or single tone, just ask our surveyor to show you his colour booklet. It’s the best way to get a good handle on how the colour will look, as minor differences in monitor displays can occasionally make online colour charts look slightly different.
