Vinyl siding doesn’t need a lot of maintenance, but if you accidentally dripped some paint on it, you’ll probably want to remove the stain. After that dries, you’ll go back with two coats of high quality acrylic latex, and you’ve completely changed the look of your house. Branches should be cut back to prevent abrasion damage caused by branches repeatedly rubbing against the siding.

Therefore, a homeowner can select a color that will match the overall color scheme and architectural style of the residence. Also, when only parts of a home’s exterior require repair, great care must be taken to match the color of the old finish. Including all coats, liquid vinyl siding is about 10-15 times thicker than regular exterior latex house paint. Liquid siding renews the existing exterior cladding while it simultaneously preserves the texture and feel of the underlying surface.

Properly applied liquid siding will outlast a traditional paint job many times over, so many homeowners actually spend less money over time. An almost universally recommended cleaning solution for vinyl siding includes 1 gallon of water, 1/3-cup laundry detergent, 2/3-cup powdered household cleaner (such as Spic ‘n Span) and 1-quart oxygen-based, liquid laundry bleach.

Of course, these are problems that you won’t see until they are pretty far along because it’s behind the siding. Before going any further, allow enough time for the siding to dry completely.

However, there are instances when painting is not a good idea.
