Now, let us get to the actual painting, what paint to use. Now, the acrylic latex siding we have used here is for aluminum and vinal siding the color is not to be any darker than the actual siding as it is now. Now, when painting, applying the paint use a brush a trim brush can be use for getting around all your corner pieces.
Now, the corner pieces, as you has note here, you want to get in underneath in order to protect the paint roller and when we go to rolling another very important tip here do not under at any circumstances do anything more than three or four run of siding by the full length of the home. Do not go all the way up to the surface and then come back down in go all the way up to the surface again because you will be going wet on dry and you will see that rigid just does not look good at all.
Now, using a close foam roller with a bull nose end I get up underneath and do the overlap at the siding is also required for the cutting in purposes of the first coat.
Now, in the case of aluminum siding you normally get a way with one coat as well as vinal the reason for that because you never want to paint again darker than the actual color so therefore the lighter the color the better the coverage because of the Titanium that is in the paint itself. But when you are applying it always make sure you go the full length. Now, we cut that in, I will show you here with the 7’ roller the 7’ roller now will get the siding right up to the point where you cut in underneath the ledge.
Now, it will take about anywhere up to 6 hours to fully cure but it is always nice, and if then if you want to go with two coats to leave with that full overnight drying period.
Now, it is just that simple to do and it does not take that long after you are all complete you say a trim paint to do all your trims, surface, facia’s in the event if you are going to be doing windows always make sure you mask the mote.
