Need to paint a vinyl gable vent: durability??


My son's house has fairly new vinyl gable vents that are cream colored. His windows are bright white.

If we scuff the surface of each vent w sandpaper, prime it and give it a couple of coats of Sherwin Williams Duration paint, will it hold up as well or better than wood?

Thanks.
Jim

The paint is rated for vinyl, I should not think you will have any problems with it. preparation is the foundation for a long lasting job. BOB
