Paint selection for exterior aluminum clad windows
I have some Kolbe Kolbe aluminum clad/wood core casement windows that had the factory bronze finish over the aluminum cladding. Over the years this finish has faded and weathered.
I want to select a paint that:
1. Can be tinted to match the factory bronze color
2. Will stick to this surface without priming. (I plan to clean and lightly sand the cladding)
3. Will level out well using a sash brush.
I'm thinking of SW Satin Duration however I've used it before and it just doesn't level out that well and leaves brush marks.
Does anyone have a recommendation on a high end acrylic paint that will fit this application. I'd like as close to the smooth factory finish as possible but prefer to brush vs. spray.
Are there any paints similar to Duration that have better leveling characteristics?
