Vinyl windows are cost-effective, easy to install and incredibly versatile, making them a fast favorite among many Delaware homeowners. But their constant exposure to the harsh elements can leave them worn. When this happens, is it actually a good idea to paint your vinyl windows? Premier window company Homecraft® Inc. offers a quick answer.
You Can, Except It’s Not Recommended
It is possible to paint your vinyl windows — just as long as the paint isn’t directly applied to the vinyl itself. That’s because paint has trouble adhering to the material’s sleek surface, so any coating applied to the vinyl will start peeling and cracking in short order. You’ll need to first clean the windows thoroughly and apply a coat of primer to create the necessary bond — a long and slightly arduous process that will soon get old. Painting offers a cost-effective way to spruce up your vinyl windows, but you’ll soon find that this solution may not actually be worth it.
