The Perfect Finish

At Richard James we believe that the right paint finish not only enhances the beauty of your products but also plays a vital role in protecting them from the elements and prolonging the lifespan of our windows and doors. That’s why all our products are finished with a Teknos coating. Teknos coatings are formulated to the highest standards to provide superior durability, long lasting protection and beautiful, reliable finishes, meaning our products are certified to the standards of weather-resistant, durable, and easy-to-clean finishes that can withstand even the harshest of climates.


Superior finish coatings

To preserve the beauty and durability of our products, we use only the finest quality coatings from Teknos.

Teknos are renowned internationally for industrial coatings and are one of Europe’s leading paint suppliers. Their advanced paint performance qualities and colour matching capability, means you won’t only have window or doors in your desired colour scheme but they will also have the best possible protection at the start of their lifespan.

How it works

Teknos microporous paint is a water-based product which uses a resin system, which when dried, produces a flexible, breathable and protective coating. The flexibility of the paint allows the timber to move naturally through the change in seasons whilst minimising the issue of cracking and peeling.

Colour matching

Teknos have the technology to match almost any colour of your choice, using their colour laboratory. This means we can offer a professional spray-painted or stained finish to match almost any colour of your choice.

Our most popular colour choices for customers, are inspired from the Farrow & Ball colour chart, found below:



Teknos testing suggests that the microporous coating can last up to 10 years depending on environment, exposure and maintenance. The combination of Teknos coatings on Accoya® timber means our products have the best possible protection at the start of their lifespan.


Choosing your colour

Our bespoke service means we can match to almost any stain or paint colour your design requires. Our most popular colour choices for customers, are inspired by Farrow & Ball and Little Greene colours.

However, if you have a colour in mind that is not within our range, we can discuss whether it’s possible to match to your desired colour through Teknos’ colour matching laboratory.
