Yes, you can paint vinyl siding, and this is often a less expensive option than replacing the siding on your home. But before you get your paintbrush ready, consider the life of your siding. If your siding is more than 20 years old, it’s probably better to just replace it to get the color you want instead of painting it. And, know that once you paint vinyl siding, it generally needs a new coat every five years or so as this paint job is not the same as the extruded color from the siding manufacturer. An important note here is that painting vinyl siding almost guarantees voiding your siding manufacturer warranty.
It is cheaper to paint your siding than it is to replace it so long as the siding is still in good shape. If you paint siding that is damaged or weakened from a storm, you might just end up paying to replace that siding in a few years. Make sure to work with an exterior painting team that also knows siding and knows what to look for in assessing the health and longevity of siding before painting it.
Pressure washing removes dirt and debris from your siding to prepare the surface for paint. Failing to properly prepare the surface can mean that your new paint doesn’t bond well with your siding material. You don’t want to roll over dirt on your home’s exterior as this will produce lumps and weaknesses in your new paint job.
Paint adheres to aluminum siding quite well. In fact, it’s better to paint aluminum siding than it is to paint vinyl siding since it doesn’t shrink and change with the weather. And paint doesn’t peel off aluminum siding the way it does with wood.
