A step-by-step DIY guide to restoring wooden window frames
STEP 1: If the coating is in poor condition, you can remove the varnish with Woodcare Coating Remover For Wood. If the windows are over-coated with oil and preservatives, remove with Woodcare Wax & Oil Remover For Wood (see pack for detailed instructions).
STEP 2: Greyed wood fibres can be removed with Woodcare Weathered Wood Restorer. Apply and leave for 5 minutes and scrub with a stiff bristle brush in the direction of the wood grain.
STEP 3: If required, you can brighten and clean your window frames with Woodcare Cleaner and Brightener For Wood. Rinse with fresh water and allow to dry thoroughly.
STEP 4: Lightly sand the window frames with 220 grit sandpaper to achieve a smooth finish.
STEP 5: Finish off your window frames with Plascon Exterior Waterbased Varnish for a long-lasting weatherproof finish. Up to 3 coats can be applied in one day and windows can be closed without any fear of them sticking to frames.
