Can You Paint Vinyl Siding?

You can paint vinyl siding if you’ve taken the appropriate steps to promote adhesion. To prevent peeling and flaking, clean the siding using a pressure washer. For best results, take the time to scrub the vinyl with a water-based degreasing cleanser. Once the siding is clean and dry, apply an exterior acrylic primer, using either a roller or sprayer. Allow the primer base to dry for at least two hours; then add one to two coats of exterior acrylic paint.

    Tips & Warnings

  • You can promote a durable, lasting finish by gently scouring the vinyl with sandpaper prior to painting. Sand the siding until it feels slightly rough to the touch.
  • Don’t use latex paint, or the finish will fade when exposed to ultra-violet light.
