There can be with dark colors. Azek recommends that you only use paint with a LRV (Light Reflective Value) of 55 or higher. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Light_Reflectance_Value

The LRV should be located on the paint color chip. Make sure you use a 100% acrylic latex paint. No need to prime either.

LRV of 55 would be a pastel color. LRV runs from 0 (black) to pure white (99).
