Painting vs. Replacing Vinyl Siding

Mold and mildew on siding. Dirty wall of house.One of the first things people look at when judging a home is the appearance of the siding. Every homeowner needs to take action on their siding at some point. Whether it’s repainting it, replacing it, or performing other types of maintenance, working with the best vinyl siding contractors is ideal.

This brings up the question of whether you can simply repaint vinyl siding when it starts fading or if you need a full house siding replacement. We’ve explored both options to help you make an informed decision.

Why You Should Paint Vinyl Siding

Painting vinyl siding offers several benefits and it’s what many siding contractors in Connecticut recommend. However, you should consider some important factors before investing time and money into painting.

If your siding is only a few years old, then repainting it is usually the best option. But if it’s approaching 20 years old or older, you probably want to choose siding replacement, since it’s nearing the end of its life span anyway.

Painting siding is much more cost-effective than replacing it. So if your existing siding is in good shape and still has several years of life, painting to achieve a new aesthetic is a great option.

When Replacing Vinyl Siding Is Recommended

Talk to vinyl siding contractors before painting your siding. Some manufacturers will void the warranty if you paint over it since they consider it to be altering the product. Also, some types of paint won’t adhere to vinyl siding effectively, which can make for an unattractive paint job.

In these situations, and if your siding is getting old, it’s recommended to choose house siding replacement. Replacing the siding will last longer than a fresh coat of paint, and there’s a better chance of meeting your expectations for the aesthetics of your home.
