Residential rental – UPVC windows

Replacing wooden windows that are not broken or falling apart is clearly a capital expenditure.

However the wooden windows would have needed painting at about the same time as they were replaced to prevent them starting to rot, so the cost of painting would have come under “prevent the property from deteriorating”.

So can the cost of the saved painting be offset against revenue while the rest of the costs of the UPVC windows are offset against capital?
