Can you paint a UPVC front door?

I have a new style UPVC front door which is painted navy blue ( I presume from manufacture). But the paint has faded over time and now looks shabby. Can I repaint it? If not, how can I make it look better? or do I just need to by a new door?

Are you sure that it is actually painted and it’s not the plastic is blue in colour instead of the standard white.If it’s the plastic then the blue has faded through being exposed to sunlight. Called “sun bleaching”If you paint it with conventional paint then it may not last because the plastic is very smooth and therefore the paint has no natural “key” or “bond” to stick to.

uPVC Door With ‘Mila’ Multipoint Lock Jammed Or Seized Up.?

I have tried removing the handles and spindle and spraying with WD40. Denver Bankruptcy Attorney . Hasnt done any good. When I try to push the handle down firmly, there is a clicking noise and it feels really stuck fast. I dont know who fitted the doors so I cant claim under the guarantee. Anyone got any ideas of anything else I can try myself before I have to call a locksmith.
