Vinyl siding on the exterior of your home will start to look dingy overtime. Did you know that you can actually paint old and weathered looking vinyl siding? Painted vinyl siding will give a boost to your home’s curb appeal and will give it a new fresh look.
What To Do Before Getting Started
Before you start painting your vinyl siding, make sure you clean it well. Consider pressure washing or hand scrubbing your home to get rid of mildew, cobwebs and other dirt including chalk. Use a multi purpose cleaner and rinse the walls before starting to paint. If the vinyl siding isn’t cleaned thoroughly, the new paint won’t adhere properly to the material.
Time To Start Painting Your Vinyl Siding
Depending on the condition your vinyl siding is in, you may need to prime it. Porous or pitted vinyl must always be primed. Most Benjamin Moore external products are actually self-priming when used on properly prepared vinyl. Be careful when choosing your color since it will be with you for a while. Benjamin Moore offers a palette of 75 handpicked colors available for use in select Benjamin Moore exterior paint lines.

When painting your vinyl siding, two coats are typically recommended. Do not over-apply the product and follow the directions on the can. Since vinyl siding does not retain moisture, your paint should dry quickly. Avoid painting in direct sunlight. The surface you are painting should not be hot to the touch.
