We are changing the color of our deck and need to change the color of our vinyl handrail. Any suggestions on how to paint the railing?

Yes you can paint a vynal fence but I wouldn't recommend it. It would have to be perfectly clean first, possibly even rough up the surface with a scotch pad, then primer and paint. I would do a really strong oil based primer.

The thing here is that it's a ton of work and if you don't do it 100% then it's gonna peel and that's gonna look like hell and you'll end up replacing it.

Maybe have a pro spray it with a marine paint (which are far more rubbery) and will not crack every time a strong wind gusts at the fence.

It's possible but it's A LOT of work!
