Handyman Services for Siding

Often times our painters find failures within the siding on homes in our area. While it might not warrant a full siding replacement, repairs are necessary. With our handyman services, you can have your siding restored to pristine condition prior to painting.

When painting vinyl siding, it’s crucial to choose a color that is the same shade or lighter than the original. Painting it a darker color can lead to warping and damage because darker colors absorb more heat, which vinyl siding is particularly sensitive to.

If you want to use a darker color, the only safe option is to use Sherwin Williams’ “VinylSafe” colors. They offer about 100 colors that can be used safely, regardless of the original color of the siding. You can explore the VinylSafe color options here.

Common Questions About Siding Painting Projects

Can you paint vinyl siding?

Yes, most types of siding can be painted successfully with good results. Attention to detail in the prep and application process is important to get an extraordinary end result.

How do you prepare siding for painting?

First, the siding is washed with power washing equipment. After washing, loose paint or debris is scraped from the surface, and imperfections are patched. Light sanding is sometimes done as a prep step to ready the surface for a primer coat. Once the primer is applied and dry, the surface is prepped and ready for new paint to be applied.

What kind of paint do you use on vinyl siding?

For most siding painting projects we use acrylic, vinyl-safe paints. Using the right paint product is very important for siding painting projects.

Will painting cause vinyl siding warping?

Painting vinyl siding with a color that is significantly darker than the original shade can cause warping. It’s best to not choose a color that is much darker than the original siding for this reason.
