need adive on aluminum windows

wangshanNovember 20, 2012

Well after finally getting to the third story window that has been falling apart , I was able to repair and restore the ancient wood in the part that is original. However, I realized the small side windows that the previous owners had clad in aluminum needed to be painted as well. It has been about 19 years since I moved in , so thay are at least that old. What is the best way to prep and paint these.

I painted my aluminum gutters using acrylic house paint.

We painted our aluminum storm windows with an exterior BM (Moorglo Softgloss) paint - just be sure to wash and remove debris, lightly go over with steel wool or sanding sponge to rough the surface, prime first and then paint. It's been 7 years and paints still going strong.
