Painting Vinyl Siding: A Review, Sort Of

Painting Vinyl Siding is easy and very doable. Here is a quick post on the best new paint for the job with a link to the how-to post on Painting Vinyl Siding.

This new paint is what many of us have been waiting for.

Before you start, read the warning at the bottom. When ready to pull the trigger, read this on How To Paint Vinyl Siding

I have not used this new paint myself, but in some sense, I don’t need to in order to recommend it.

It seems that every paint in the Ben Moore line is trustworthy.

I’ll write more after I use it, but for now, go for it and let me know your experience!

It comes in Flat, Low Lustre and Soft Gloss like any typical exterior paint. I guess the downside is that the Colors for Vinyl color palette is only available in only 75 or so colors, but that usually increases over the years as they figure out the chemistry.

They claim, and I believe that this vinyl siding paint stands up to the harshest weather conditions. But the key as always is VERY GOOD PREP. Make sure your siding is clean and dry.

It has a limited lifetime warranty, even in wet and humid environments.

From the Ben Moore advertisement:

  • Resists peeling and cracking.
  • Retains paint colors for long-lasting beauty.
  • Protects against wind-driven rain, excessive humidity, and other harsh weather conditions.
  • In temperatures as low as 35° F
  • In temperatures as high as 100° F

Ben Moore will not back up the vinyl-safe formula paint if you paint a color darker than the original vinyl. It must have to do with temperature and bonding issues.

And of course, always test bonding properties before starting the job!

If you are thinking of spraying, that’s fine. Read my post on the best paint sprayers today.
