If your vinyl siding has seen better days or you no longer like its color, save big bucks by painting it instead of replacing it. There are certain limitations though:
- the paint used must contain acrylic and urethane resins; these ingredients, which accommodate the expansion and contraction of vinyl, help the coating to stick. We know what products contain these.
- the color usually has to be the same shade or lighter than the current color; darker colors retain more heat and leave the siding vulnerable to premature warping. However, paint manufacturers have developed certain colors that can be used, even though they may be darker than the existing vinyl siding color you currently have.
