PVC can last for years but can quickly become dirty and difficult to keep looking its best. It is used for drain pipes, cladding, windows, doors and more and historically PVC has been a problem surface to paint due to its slick surface most paint will peel, crack or flake away from PVC surfaces. However, Zinsser’s Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Plus is perfect primer for the job.
