What paint for window's wood frame in bathroom

by fraccalo » Wed Nov 16, 2022 7:00 pm

Hi all,
I have a PVC window in my bathroom, and I'd need to paint the wood frame around it (see picture here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/6j3ovr3na5pdqa6/WhatsApp%20Image%202022-11-16%20at%2018.41.09.jpeg?dl=0). I am now sanding the old paint away (as it was heavily exfoliating), and I am wondering what kind of paint/products I should use for painting it.
Note that half of this frame is right above the bathtub/shower, which means it always gets some water on it.
Thanks :)

Hi fraccalo,
Suggest you use international yacht paint but the issue you face is that the wooden frame was probably not painted before it was fitted. Any water getting into the wall/frame join or upvc/frame join will be adsorbed by the timber and will therefore lift of any paint no matter what you use.
Regards S
