Paint Vinyl Siding

Q: Is it possible to paint vinyl siding? Or do I have to replace the siding if I want a new color?

A: Fortunately, several new paints are formulated with a blend of special resins to stick to vinyl siding, and even come with a manufacturer’s warranty. Just check the paint can for its intended usage, and be sure to follow the instructions. Also keep in mind that vinyl expands and contracts with temperature changes. Since darker colors absorb more heat that lighter tones, if you paint it a color that is too dark, your siding can actually buckle. This is why vinyl products typically come in lighter colors. Manufacturers generally recommend that you paint vinyl siding no darker than its current shade. Clean the surface thoroughly before painting to remove any mold or mildew. Also, vinyl siding has weep holes that allow condensation to escape. Don’t seal these holes with paint or you’ll have moisture-retention problems. You can use a wire to remove paint from the weep holes.
