How to paint vinyl siding

October 2011

I get a lot of questions regarding vinyl siding. It’s easy to install, cheap to buy and it makes such an overall difference in the appearance of a home.

Vinyl siding lasts for many years before it starts to fade and look a little worn. 5 years ago, the only option to restore faded vinyl was to replace it.

There is now the option to paint vinyl siding to make it look new. New types of paint allow the vinyl to expand and contract with the temperature fluctuations while the paint adheres.

Be sure to check out my tips for painting vinyl siding here.

I just wanted to say that I love your website. My husband and I followed your instructions on building our own home. Most of the work we did ourselves, but not all. We saved $90,000 in labor costs and now have a beautiful home that we own.

I built my own home doing all my own labor. My house costs me around $70,000 for materials. It took me 8 months to build and is about 2,000 square feet. I didn't think I could do it, but your house web site encouraged me. I used all the info you had.

Thank you,

I can't thank you enough for your free information web site about home building. I was looking for Electrical wiring diagrams when I found your site. It was very helpful.

My wife and I lost our home to foreclosure but we kept a plot of land to start over. We are halfway through the construction of our house. Your website gave us hope to start over and build a house with low payments. We are in our late 60's but we find it rewarding to put so much effort into a project that will reward us for years to come.
