• Repainting Your Siding: Double the Life for One-Third the Cost

    Published 5/24/2013


    Many homeowners are shocked to learn that both aluminum and vinyl siding can be restored to ‘better than new’ appearance with a properly applied top coating of quality paint, at a cost that is typically 25-30% of replacement siding. And if you’re thinking that having your siding painted will start a cycle of repainting year after year, think again. Our experience has shown that properly cleaned, prepared, and then repainted, sound aluminum and vinyl can often look beautiful again for another 15 to 20 years or more.

    Cost Estimates 
    (based on the average home with 2,400 sq. ft. of exterior)


    Vinyl replacement
    ($4-$6 per sq. ft. installed)

    Aluminum replacement
    ($3-$5 per sq. ft. installed)

    Repaint either substrate
    ($1-$1.50 per sq. ft.)

    Good news about choosing a new paint color

    Not long ago your color choices for repainting vinyl siding were limited. That’s because using a dark color on top of lighter siding would cause the siding to buckle or warp, so your only option was to choose the same color or lighter. Now, thanks to advances like Sherwin-Williams VinylSafe™ Color Technology, you can choose from 100 beautiful colors in the VinylSafe™ palette or even have a custom match created.

    Aluminum siding can also benefit from the new paint color technology. An additional consideration for aluminum is the finish of the paint: flat or eggshell finishes are best at hiding dings and dents that have accumulated over the years.
