If you don't have or can't afford the real wood clipboard, you'll need to find another reliable alternative. If your NY roof siding is made of vinyl, you'll need to properly regulate, maintain, and clean it.
However, if you aren't satisfied with how the vinyl siding looks even after cleaning it, the good news is that you can paint it. Read through to find out more details.
The painting process for vinyl siding roof is less difficult and labor-intensive than masonry or wood clipboard because it dries off quickly and doesn't retain moisture. However, there are a few vital things to know before beginning the painting project.
The first step for any painting project is to start with a clean surface. This rule is important considering that the exterior may be very dirty. If you are working with a large area, you should begin by power washing or cleaning the roof’s surface by scrubbing with a stiff-bristle brush; and rinsing it down.
You don't need to use expensive soap. A laundry detergent or mild soap will do the cleaning, except you need a specialty product (cleaner) from the paint company.
Priming is not a necessary step in the painting process so it can be skipped. The only areas that need to be primed are the porous or pitted vinyl siding to keep them smooth. For priming, the best primer to use is an adhesive primer.
While painting, it's normal for some leftover paint to lug into the project's basement. Therefore, using acrylic paint for vinyl siding is safer to prevent warping. If the wrong paint or color is used, the heat absorption will cause the vinyl to expand. The best color to choose is one that has a Light Reflective Value (LRV) that is greater than 55%. The LRV measures how Light color reflects and how much it absorbs.
Even though there are some paint jobs that you can do yourself, it's better to hire a professional to do this one because the paint has to be very smooth. In addition, the actual coating and prep work has to be carefully done. So, your best bet is a professional.
It's very necessary to wash your painted vinyl siding annually because it'll help prevent the build-up of grime which could lead to warping. If you're able to do annual power washes, rest assured your paint job will last for years.
