Painting cellular vinyl PVC trim boards??
I have just about finished building a porch using “Royal Trim Boards” – 100% cellular vinyl PVC in many spots. In a few spots, I expect to add wooden moldings (already primed) to the surface of the PVC as I couldnt find the trim I wanted. Net – I think I am painting the whole lot – and would be grateful for any tips anyone might have, including specific product names if any
As much as I don’t want to paint the trim boards, at the very least I will need to touch up the cauling used to hide the screw holes, and the seams, and as well, the columns are fiberglass, must be painted and so they will need to be the same colour.
The Mfr (Royal) recommends sanding with 220 and then using Sherwin Williams VinylSafe – comments appreciated ?
The SW website for their Duration product seems to suggest a single coat of paint will be self priming and last for as long as I own the house.
As this seems way too good to be true, I would welcome any insight others may have on this subject.
