Besides, what is the best paint for PVC trim?

Primer: use a quality acrylic latex primer that is recommended by the manufacturer for exterior PVC surfaces. These primers are often described as “universal” or “stain blocking.” B. Paint: choose a top-of-the-line exterior 100% acrylic latex paint in a flat, satin, semigloss or gloss finish.

Likewise, should PVC trim be painted? Although painting PVC trim boards isn't necessary, we recommend it. PVC boards won't weather or lose its ability to hold paint. Before you paint, use mild detergent to clean off grime and oils left over from handling and make sure the surfaces are dry. Then finish it with any exterior 100 percent acrylic paint.

Likewise, people ask, do you need to prime azek?

Azek maintains that it does not require painting for a maintenance free product and we agree. Your paint needs to be 100% acrylic. Do not prime the Azek, simply do top coats of 100% acrylic from a quality manufacturer.

Can azek be painted black?

So, if the trim on your home is painted black or brown and you decide to use Azek for a repair of rotten wood, you will have to change the color of the rest of the trim to make it match the new lighter color that will be needed to paint the Azek.
