Painting of Vinyl Siding

Halifax residential exterior painting project gallery

The painting of vinyl siding will revive your home giving it a modern new look.

Thousands of Homes in the HRM

In the Halifax Regional Municipality, there are thousands of new and older homes with vinyl siding.

Vinyl siding is rated for a 30-year life span but actually lasts much longer. Newer homes have neutral colours while the older homes will have colours from the era of install that can be best described as more adventurous.

Colours in vogue today may not be tomorrow and the choice of one home owner may not be the desired choice of the next home owner. If you are unhappy with the look of your vinyl sided home and want to change the colour, we have your solution!

Painting your Vinyl Siding

If you have had the experience of having acrylic paint drips on your vinyl siding, you know that paint will stick to that surface. Painting of vinyl siding is not something new and we have been painting these surfaces for over 25 years with great success.

A wide range of colours for vinyl siding

In the past painting vinyl siding was restricted to the same colour tone or a lighter one as darker colours current would attract heat and cause the siding to warp. This limited colour choices for clients.

The introduction of vinyl safe colour technology by major paint manufacturers has safely opened up the painting of vinyl siding to almost any colour that a customer desires. There are still some colour limitations but these are irrelevant for the majority of clients.

Great Paint Is Important but Proprietary Paint Is Not

There are contracting companies that have proprietary products for vinyl siding that achieve great results. However, all major paint manufacturers have great products that achieve similar results. Elite Trade Painting uses Sherwin Williams products for the coating of vinyl siding and in our experience, these are the best in the industry.

Having a proprietary product and service has a cost. Our services with the top of the line Sherwin Williams products are 30-50% cheaper than your proprietary service provider.

Your Painted Vinyl Will Last for a Long Time

The majority of paint failures on the exterior of homes are caused by moisture. Water does not penetrate vinyl and hence is not susceptible to moisture related failures. Providing that the paint is fully adhered to the vinyl, the coating will last as long as the siding. Like vinyl, paint will fade over time and may require a re-coat in 10-15 years.

The Process

Vinyl siding painting is relatively simple; start with a power wash of the surface and after the vinyl has dried, the coating begins. Two coats of a satin finish is then applied with a sprayer or with a brush & roller technique. The choice of application method depends on the conditions that exist; both methods achieve amazing results,
