Vinyl Siding Painting
Vinyl Siding Painting
Serving Sterling Heights & Surrounding Communities
Vinyl is a popular exterior siding choice – it’s budget friendly, low maintenance and durable. Yet just like any other exterior home material, it’s not invincible and it can certainly show its age and wear. Instead of replacing the vinyl siding, why not just give it a facelift? When properly done by professionals like Imperial Painting, painting vinyl siding can last as long as 10 years. Painting over vinyl siding is different than painting aluminum siding, stucco, wood lap or any other exterior material, which is another reason to consult with pro. We employ a three step process to painting your vinyl siding.
Step 1: Clean Surface
The most important part of painting vinyl siding is to start with a clean surface. We’ll use a three-prong cleaning approach. A pressure washer will quickly and efficiently knock the chipped and peeling paint off the surface. We’ll also use TSP where appropriate to cut down on mildew growth. Then we’ll scrap any areas with loose paint still remaining. And finally we’ll sand the areas where paint fell away and the original material is showing through. This gives the surface something for the primer and paint to adhere to.
Step 2: Prime and Caulk
A high-quality primer will be applied to protect the surface and give an even base for the paint. It also helps the paint bond to the siding. Then we’ll use an acrylic caulk to seal any cracks less than 1/8 inch thick, like around windows, door trims and chimneys.
Step 3: Time to Paint!
First, we’ll mask off any areas that will not be painted, like windows, and we’ll cover nearby plants and shrubs. This protects everything in the vicinity when we use the paint sprayer. The paint we use for vinyl siding is a 100% acrylic house paint, which offers the best coating and adhesion on vinyl. When you select a paint color, it’s important to select a color lighter than the original vinyl color. Darker colors can absorb more heat from the sun and actually cause the vinyl to warp.
Why Choose a Professional?
Choosing to hire and work with a professional painting contractor comes with many benefits. Because the contractor’s cost will include all the necessary equipment and crew, you could really save money over having to buy everything yourself – from pressure washers to ladders and paint. The crew will be experienced in exactly the type of paint you need for the surface, like vinyl siding, and the Sterling area weather conditions. Having a professional work on the project will be more efficient than attempting to do it yourself, again, saving you money and time.
