A fresh lick of paint is a great way to refresh tired old window frames without having to replace them. And vinyl or PVC windows can be painted – there are just a few reasons why it might be better not to.
Vinyl windows are a low-maintenance, energy-efficient option, and they do a brilliant job of keeping our houses warm.

Over time, the material expands and contracts when exposed to changing temperatures, causing the frames to sag and crack. We asked experts if taking on the DIY project of painting vinyl windows is the solution.
