Colour Tec has been trading since 2008 and offers cosmetic repairs and on-site colour coating for windows, doors, garage doors and aluminium. The company also offers a factory-based spraying service, where products are taken to its facility in Horbury. There, the team sprays products using a specialist, high quality paint. The painted product is either delivered back to the customer’s premises, or straight to site. Colour Tec follows a two-coat application process, before air-drying each door. Should further coats be necessary, this is done wet-on-wet, so the paint is touch dry very quickly and no baking of the product is needed. The product used is a high quality 2-part acrylic paint, which carries an extensive guarantee. The duration between coats is minimal, which improves turnaround time and factory workflow. Colour Tec also supplies colour matched trims as part of a door, or for individual sale, which are available in a variety of finishes - smooth, woodgrain or textured (similar to sand grain). This service is highly prized by door manufacturers and installers, with some of the largest door manufacturers in the UK amongst Colour Tec’s customers. Dean Hurst – Colour Tec’s owner – says the demand for bespoke colours and quick turnaround times is behind the firm’s success: “The word is out there that we provide a quality service that’s fast and efficient – typically around a week - and can do any colour. We pride ourselves on an exceptionally high standard finish and service. We agree on an exact turnaround time prior to the job commencing, so that required timescales are met,” he explains.
