Painting vinyl siding is possible. The only problem is vinyl siding likes to expand and shrink depending on the temperature. This means the paint on them can fade and become damaged faster than others. Exterior paints with acrylic and urethane resins in them, that are the same or lighter color than your vinyl siding, are the best choices.
You can follow Chris and Kim as they follow the 5 steps to painting their vinyl siding.
Chris and Kim’s home is fading fast.
The paint on the vinyl siding of their home is starting to show wear-and-tear from years of being outside. Chris scratches his head and does his best James Dean, “Well then, there Kim, we gotta do something about this.”
“Definitely. I don’t really like the look. Who knows what other people are thinking,” she replies crisply.
Chris thinks for a moment and says, “Well, how about I call my painter friend and ask him what he knows. He might be able to help us learn how to paint vinyl siding. It can be a fun family project.”
Kim smiles. She loves how Chris tries to make the best out of everything. “Sounds like a great idea!” she says.
Chris whips out his phone and makes the call. Kim goes back to quietly observing her home. A few minutes later, Chris appears beside her with good news.
“Well, he knows exactly what we need to do. He told me the 5 steps to it and gave me a little list of tools and materials.”
