How to paint vinyl siding, some things to consider.

Tools / Materials (See Below for Applicability):

  • Acrylic latex paint that contains a high solids content

  • Medium sandpaper (about 120 grit)

Guide:

In the normal course of painting your vinyl siding, among other things, remember these two things:

  • Use medium sandpaper to sand the vinyl siding in preparation for painting, as sanding first will help the siding become more tolerant of the paint, allowing the paint to become better adhered to the siding.

  • You can't just use any kind of paint.  In painting vinyl siding, you'll need to use acrylic latex paint that has a high solids content.  Such a type of paint is imperative to use because it best handles the normal characteristic movement of vinyl siding over time.  Also, do not use any paint color that is darker than the previously applied paint, as dark paint on siding tends to cause such siding to buckle and warp from increased heat absorption.

Caution: When dealing with chemicals, such as those found in paint, make sure you take precautions; read all product manufacturer instructions.

These are just some of the aspects of painting vinyl siding that you should consider.
