Hi all!
I have a question to prfessionals. I have an old vinyl window in my garage. It became yellowish. I do not like how it looks. What if to paint it? I d not have money now to reinstall it.
Is it possible to apply a coat of white paont on old vinyl window?

Anything is possible. Will it work, most likely not.

The paint will peel off pretty quickly and you will spend more time messing with this than if you were to just buy a new one.

Surely, it is better to change the window, but it suits me in everything apart from its appearance and yellowish color.
I purchased the cheapest spray mrosupply.com/search/?q=spray+paint It is white. I want to try to apply it in one corner of the window.
If it will not help I will have to change the window later…

As long as you have replacement as a plan B, you probably don't have anything to lose... As WoW explained it does not typically yield great results, but worth a shot I guess. Just a garage window

You need to prep the surface.
SW has a line of paints that will stick to vinyl.
Polyurthane based ( marine) paints will adhere. The fumes may kill ya.

Rust oleum has a paint for vinyl as well, but I have used there other spray paints with success.
You do not want to paint the weatherstripping or sides of the jambs that the sashes contact as well as the sides of the sashes that contact the jambs.
