Is Painting Vinyl Replacement Windows Possible?


What happens if you get vinyl replacement windows in Truckee, CA, and later, you want to change the color of your house? The windows might not suit the new color you’ve chosen. Can you paint the vinyl windows? In theory, anything can be painted, but paint doesn’t stick to vinyl very well. The windows may end up looking worse after painting because the paint will start flaking off within days. It’s in your best interest to consider the future when you are getting replacement windows in a certain color.

One of the things that many people do is simply get a neutral color. If you get white vinyl replacement windows, they will go with any color you decide to paint your house later. They’ll look nice with the color you have now and they’ll still look good if you change things up down the road. Another neutral color is an off-white that is similar to white in that it looks good with anything.

Some people also get black. That can limit the colors you can paint your house a bit, but as long as you keep the outside of the house in a lighter tone, the black will look nice and offer a good contrast to the color.

As you look at replacement windows, consider the color of your home. Do you like it the way it is? If you ever paint it, will you make a big change or stick with what it is now? IF you know you like the color, you can get a window color to match. Even if you paint the home later, as long as you stick with the same color tone, you can get something darker or lighter and contrast the window colors a bit.

Keep in mind that there are a lot of advantages to vinyl windows. Many people see the fact that you can’t paint them as a huge benefit. That takes the maintenance away from them and you don’t have to worry about the chipping that paint tends to do as years pass by. But it’s very important to get a color you can live with for a long time because vinyl windows last for decades.
