Vinyl SidingIn 1960’s vinyl siding had grown in popularity to become the number one choice of exterior siding across the United States. According to the Vinyl Siding Institute, U.S. Census figures show twice as many homeowners choose to side their homes with vinyl than any other material.

You have already known some of its benefits, if you have vinyl siding on your home. The benefits are: easy maintenance, durability, and versatility. But if you would like to give your home a colorful facelift, you might want to think of painting over the vinyl siding. It used to be limited, but not anymore.

Many thanks to new Vinyl Safe Color Technology from Sherman-Williams, changing the color of a vinyl-sided home is as easy as painting it. Luckily, paint is the most cost-effective approach to changing the appearance of a home. With color, homeowners are able to enhance the curb appeal of the homes, make a statement, and even increase the value.


Traditionally, white same color or lighter-than the siding colors were safe choices. The sun’s rays reflect the sun within these shades. This keeps the siding from warping or buckling. Today’s homeowner is more interested in color than ever before including vivid, bright, and deep hues. Evidence of this is as close as the house next door and in home decorating magazines and television programs. The broader spectrum of exterior colors is used to complement various architectural styles or regional influences.

Vinyl Safe Color Technology has made it possible for even the most vivid, darker exterior colors can easily applied over light colored vinyl without fear of the siding warping or buckling. Sherwin-Williams’ SherColor has advanced color matching, so what it comes down to is that you can have virtually any custom color you choose.
