 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.

Today’s Options for Paint­ing Vinyl Siding

Thanks to the onward march of for­mu­la devel­op­ment, there are bet­ter options than ever before to meet your exte­ri­or paint­ing needs.

How Else Can You Care for Your Vinyl Siding?

If you like your exist­ing col­or and sim­ply want to bring back a lit­tle of the orig­i­nal shine, have you con­sid­ered pow­er wash­ing? This is a fan­tas­tic way to rinse away mold, mildew, dirt, and oth­er con­t­a­m­i­nants that are find­ing a home on your property.

A lit­tle care and TLC will go a long way in the effort to keep your sid­ing beau­ti­ful and sound.

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.
