Yes! It’s safe to paint your vinyl siding.
Vinyl siding is made from plastic, which most paint is not made to adhere to and also heats up a lot quicker than other surfaces, causing fading and even worse, warping. That’s why we custom-formulated a strategic paint for vinyl with a solar-transparent shield and created an innovative patented process that zeros in on the unique composition of vinyl. Now, you can update the look of your vinyl and boost your home’s curb appeal without all of the worry.
Our patented process determines the right way to paint your vinyl siding
We’ve seen that painting vinyl siding the right way requires several steps before you can even get to the paint part. Our patented process involves measuring the thickness and composition of your vinyl to determine a made-to-measure coating and colour solution to ensure long lasting durability and protection against warping.
Proper installation is a must for a long-lasting paint finish.
Vinyl expands and contracts with temperature changes, so it has to be able to move. If your vinyl is nailed in too tight, it restricts movement of the siding and causes strain that can lead to warping and buckling… even on original, unpainted vinyl! We’ll evaluate the installation of your siding during your at-home consultation to make sure it’s set up for the proper painting conditions.

Frequently asked questions
When does your painting season begin and end?
Our paints and coatings are formulated with resins and additives that allow us to paint in any temperature above freezing point (0°C). This means that our painting season usually begins around mid-April and ends in November.
How long does it take to complete a project?
For painting exterior siding, we do a thorough power-wash before the actual day of the paint application. This can last anywhere between 2 and 5 hours depending on the size of the home. Surface preparation for doors and windows occurs on the same day. Regardless of the size of the project, the actual paint application is typically done in one day. Having said that, we definitely won’t skimp out on quality just to get a home done in a day. If needed for a flawless finish, we’ll take the extra time. If your renewal involves several different colours, we’ll need a little extra time to completely finish the project.
