Painting Tips for Your Vinyl Fence

Vinyl fencing is an excellent option for the homeowner who wants a material that's durable, weather-resistant, and easy to maintain. While this material already comes in a variety of colors, you can still touch it up to customize it to your taste. Here are some suggestions you can try to enhance your vinyl fence.

Buy an epoxy-based paint from your hardware store, as this will efficiently stick to your vinyl fence. Get a primer and prepare a damp cloth or your garden hose, rollers or a paint sprayer, and the proper sealant for your vinyl. Hose down the fence to remove any debris and wipe it with a damp cloth. Allow it to dry before you start your painting project.

When the surface is ready, apply the primer (use one specially designed to protect the fence from molds and mildew). Using your implement of choice, coat the fence with the epoxy-based paint you have. Make sure that you cover the surface evenly; the sprayer might be a better tool for this. After the paint has sufficiently dried, apply the sealer to give your vinyl fence a nice luster.

Note that while your vinyl fence will remain virtually maintenance-free, your paint will need more attention. Inspect it regularly and make sure that it hasn't faded or peeled off. If it has, you can touch it up again to make it as good as new.
