Can You Paint Vinyl Siding? - Maintenance Tips for Your Commercial Property
Have you ever wondered if you can paint your commercial property’s vinyl siding? After all, the low-maintenance aspect of vinyl is definitely a benefit, but that doesn’t mean that a change isn’t in order every now and then. Colors fade and styles change, leaving the need for a little refreshing and updating. This is especially important when it comes to cultivating an attractive, modern aesthetic to appeal to your clients and guests.
In recent years, painting vinyl siding was generally discouraged. Or, if you did, you really needed to either match the existing paint or switch to a lighter color.
Vinyl absorbs the sunlight all day, and if a darker color is applied it means that even more heat is going to soak into the material. This increased temperature often caused damage, including buckling and paint failure.

Is it a Bad Idea to Paint Vinyl Siding?
The only way painting vinyl siding is a bad idea is if it’s done incorrectly. Because vinyl siding is so durable, it needs paint that can also stand against the elements. Proper maintenance is key and working with a professional who can mitigate future issues. Professional painting contractors can also make remediations before issues destroy the integrity of your building.
