Don't paint it dark!

In reply to How to paint over vinyl siding? by hazela on April 20th, 2003 10:02 AM [Go to top of thread]

Hazela - you can paint vinyl siding. Pressure wash it to remove and chalk and dirt.

All you need is two coats of 100% Acrylic Latex paint - buy the best you can afford. Primer isn't usually necessary.

What you cannot do is paint your siding a much darker color than it already is. Painting it a dark color will make it absorb more heat from the sun - causing it to warp and buckle.

Stick with white or other light pastel colors - dark brown will give you trouble.
