Painting advice

  • Radiators should be turned off and only painted when completely cold. The longer you can leave them turned off for the paint to thoroughly dry the better.
  • Traditionally a solvent-based paint is used on radiators and other heated surfaces but now some of the latest generation of water-based paints can also be used. Read the can instructions before use to see if the paint is suitable.
  • A good tip when painting radiators is to paint them the same colour as the wall. That way they blend into the wall rather than standing out as a less than attractive feature.
