Painting Vinyl Siding the Right Way
Obviously vinyl siding doesn’t require the maintenance and paint that traditional wood siding does but if you aren’t satisfied with the color can you still paint it?
The answer is yes but you need to clean the siding with a general household cleaner (like Simple Green) beforehand to remove all dirt, mildew and moisture then rinse the cleaning agent off and let dry.
When painting vinyl siding you should keep your colors light as darker colors increase heat absorption and can warp the siding.
You can also paint steel and aluminum siding but after cleaning make sure you prime the rusted areas or replace pieces that are rusted to the core before painting.
