A sensible siding solution, vinyl.  Vinyl remains a popular, budget-friendly choice for home exteriors. The requirements are low maintenance, and the material has only gotten better, thank you to advancements in manufacturing. Even so, nothing is invincible. If your siding is looking faded or worn out, or if you just want to switch to a new hue, you might be wondering: “Can I paint vinyl siding?” Why yes adventurous homeowner, you can!


Look; new vinyl siding can cost between $5,000 – $14,050. On average, painted homes will need a new coat of paint every five years. This might be slightly less if the paint didn’t adhere well to the siding, or if your home gets exposed to extreme elements of sunlight and moisture. If you plan to stay in your home, the cost of painting can quickly add up to the price of a new siding job. If you do not properly paint your vinyl siding, it can take the aesthetic of your home from “meh” to “oh heavens no”.  All that money you just spent; down the drain.


Yes, you may be able to channel your inner HGTV extraordinaire to save money by doing the project yourself, but plan to dedicate many hours to the project. Don’t underestimate how large the exterior surface of the home is and how much paint you will need. Also, don’t forget the cost of additional tools like sprayers or scaffolding.


Also, color choice is a very important proponent.  The color needs to be appropriate based on the brand of the siding, and current color.  Too dark can cause the lighting to slide underneath the siding, and cause it to warp. It’s recommended to use a siding color that is similar or lighter than your original.
