Question Painting Vinyl Windows

Can I paint my vinyl windows? I want to change the colour. If I the answer is yes, then what's the best paint? Do I need a special primer?

I guess your frames are white? My first question would be "why do you want to paint them?" They are white for a reason... nil maintenance...

Besides that.. firstly you will have to ruin them by keying the surface, a good grade 2 sandpaper. If you dont the paint you choose will not "stick".

Secondly, you will have to choose an oil based paint and if you dont want gloss your looking at an Egg Shell.... if you do, a regular gloss will do!

Personally, I would say you are a fool to change the colour and will only attract years of maintenace... and for what?
