Has anyone been installing and painting exterior vinyl
products(molding, sashes, etc.) long enough to know about the
durability of the finishes. Exterior latexes and solid stains look
great when the job is finished, but what about 5+ years later?
latex, solid stains on vinyl.................never!
use acrylic paint only
should be sprayed on, not brushed or rolled
and yes it is still paint
so it should have a fresh coat every 3 to 5 years.
kinda defeats the purpose of having vinyl.......don't you think?

As far as I know paint on vinyl last a very long time.
My brother painted his blue vinyl house white 19 years ago and to this
day it still looks great.
It looks like white vinyl siding.
The trick is to wash it first and use 100% acrylic paint.

When they painted my car a different color, didn't they paint my vinyl
bumpers? (I wish I had thought about that or I might have stayed with
the same color, so I hope my bumper does half as well as your house.
What do I use to think car paint, acrylic i suppose, if I need to
touch up? I paid extra for 5 oz. of matching paint.
