Things To Consider

If you are looking to paint your windows in 2022, there are a couple things to consider before you begin engaging with painting contractors to learn the the cost of painting them. 

The first thing to consider is the type of windows do you have. The two most common types of windows are wood and vinyl. Depending on your window’s type, the cost of painting them could be quite different.

Painting Vinyl Windows 

Though window manufacturers often advise against painting vinyl windows, many homeowners are opting to painting as a cheaper way of to modernizing the look of their windows. 

The problem with painting vinyl is in the paint’s ability to “grab” the material. Where as wood is porous with high adherence, vinyl doesn’t have this quality. Because of this it is important to use Extreme Bond Primer by Sherwin-Williams (or something similar) when painting vinyl windows.
