We talked about painting aluminum siding, but what about vinyl, can you paint vinyl siding?

Vinyl siding was introduced as an exterior product in the 1950s. With time it has gotten better but like paint it is not immune to fading. It will fade somewhat slower than paint though. It varies in quality and as a general rule the more expensive is more durable and the color will fade slower.

Can vinyl siding be painted?

After years of weather conditions it will start looking tired and when that happens an easy way to bring it back to life is by painting it. Painting vinyl siding is pretty straight forward, pressure wash to a clean surface and apply a paint that is compatible with vinyl siding like Sherwin Williams Vinyl Siding Compatible Paint or Benjamin Moore Vinyl and Aluminum Siding

    We have old vinyl siding on our house. I’m glad to know it can be painted.
