Vinyl Siding Painting in Edmonton

Vinyl siding has been the go-to siding solution for many years at this point. While both wood and stucco siding can offer benefits, vinyl’s unique combination of low-cost, good aesthetics, ease of installation, and durability, make it one of the most commonly installed types in Edmonton and the surrounding area. However, there is a chance that your home is looking a little worse for the wear. In that case, vinyl siding painting can help revive your home.

Why Does Vinyl Siding Need to Be Painted?

Given the fact that this type of siding can often last longer than its stated 30-year lifespan, it’s natural to wonder why an Edmonton home might require vinyl siding painting. There are two common reasons that we provide this service to our clients.

The most common reason is that while vinyl can definitely last 30 years or more, the colours can begin to fade in less time, particularly if your home sustains significant sun exposure over the course of the year. Vinyl siding painting refreshes and renews your home’s exterior, making it look like new once more.

The second reason we often are called on to provide vinyl siding painting for Edmonton area homeowners is due to tastes and trends. Because vinyl can last a long time, it’s not unusual for the original colours to fall out of style. Vinyl siding painting allows you to update your home’s look for less than it would cost to replace the siding completely.

What Colours Are Available?

At Elite Trade Painting, we offer Edmonton area homeowners access to a very wide range of colour choices. We believe that you should be able to make your home perfectly reflect your sense of style.

Edmonton’s long winters and bright summers influence popular vinyl siding paint colours. Light, reflective colours are a favourite choice, as they help keep homes cooler during the hot months.

Whites, light greys, and soft beiges are all popular options. For a touch of personality, homeowners sometimes incorporate accent colours around features like doorways or windows.

Deep greens and rich blues are gaining traction in recent years, adding a touch of sophistication and complementing natural elements like landscaping.

Ultimately, the best colour choice depends on your personal style and the architectural features of your home. Consult with our colour experts at Elite Trade Painting Edmonton to discuss your options and find the perfect shade to enhance your home’s curb appeal.

How Long Does Paint Last?

It might seem as though paint would not adhere to vinyl siding, but that’s not the case. The acrylic paint we use (Sherwin Williams) adheres perfectly well to vinyl. In fact, it will last as long as the vinyl itself. However, like the original vinyl colour, eventually your paint will begin to fade. We recommend refreshing it every 10 years to keep your home looking like new. There are a number of factors that can extend or decrease the lifespan of the acrylic paint, these include:

  • Color Choice: Lighter colors, like whites and pastels, tend to reflect sunlight and resist fading better than darker colors. Darker colors absorb more heat, which can lead to faster breakdown of the paint film.
  • Sun Exposure: Homes exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods will experience more wear and tear on the paint compared to those in shaded areas.
  • Weather Conditions: Edmonton’s harsh winters and hot summers can take a toll on paint. Extreme temperature fluctuations and moisture can contribute to peeling and cracking.
  • Quality of Paint Application: Proper surface preparation and meticulous application techniques significantly impact the lifespan of the paint job. Our experienced painters at Elite Trade Painting Edmonton ensure proper preparation and use professional application methods to maximize the life of your Sherwin-Williams paint.

Extending the Life of Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding is prized for its low-maintenance nature, but a little TLC goes a long way in maximizing its lifespan. Regular cleaning is key. Twice a year, use a garden hose or a pressure washer on a low setting (avoiding high pressure that can damage the vinyl) to remove dirt, grime, and cobwebs.

For stubborn stains, mix a mild detergent solution with water and scrub gently with a soft-bristled brush. Avoid harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners that can dull the finish. Keep an eye out for minor cracks or gaps and address them promptly with caulk specifically formulated for vinyl siding.

Trim overgrown bushes and trees to prevent them from scraping against the siding and blocking air circulation, which can trap moisture and promote mould growth. Finally, a fresh coat of paint at least every 10 years adds a protective layer against UV rays and harsh weather, further extending the life of your vinyl siding and keeping your home looking its best.

What Process Is Followed?

Our vinyl siding painting process is actually quite simple. First, we power wash the exterior to remove dirt, grime, and mould. Then, once it is completely dry, we apply two coats of satin fish with sprayers, rollers, and brushes.
