Don’t Replace Your Vinyl Siding - Paint It Instead!

Add value to your home or building, by painting vinyl siding and trim.

Many homeowners are not aware that vinyl siding can be successfully painted. With the right paint and appealing color options, you can give your home a whole new look—without investing in new siding.

Applying paint to vinyl siding improves its durability, and because the siding does not retain moisture, it is easy to clean and dries quickly.

Benefits of repainting vinyl siding

Repainting offers long-lasting benefits:

  • Refreshes weathered or faded siding to nearly factory-new appearance, improving the value of your home
  • Updates a home's color scheme for enhanced curb appeal
  • Protects the siding from the elements with the latest coating technology

The professional painters at GSL PAINTING follow these steps for the best results:

Step 1: Cleaning

Before painting, the surface must be cleaned and any mildew, chalk, or dirt removed to ensure maximum adhesion and to avoid staining. Power-washing is the prefered method to clean vinyl siding and to remove loose paint. Following power-washing the peeled edges are lightly feather sanded before panting.

Step 2: Priming

In most cases priming all of the siding is not necessary. Areas of pitted or porous vinyl siding are primed using high hiding all purpose Primer.

Step 3: Selecting Paint

For coating vinyl siding or trim, we us a full line of paints that provide excellent color retention, are resistant to mildew and can be applied in temperatures as low as 40 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 4: Selecting Colors

To avoid warping in vinyl siding caused by paint colors that absorb heat, be sure to choose from our color palette that is safe for vinyl, offering hundreds of colors from darker shades to lighter hues.

Step 5: Maintenance

We recomend power washing each spring to maintain the appearance and extend the life of your paint job.
