You can paint aluminum siding on your house in 3 steps. These steps are first finding a cool and dry day to work, cleaning the siding with a mold/mildew resistant cleanser, and finally painting the aluminum siding with a 100% acrylic paint. You can add in modifiers and a primer modifier if you think it needs the extra power to stick to your home.
Let’s follow Paul as he paints his aluminum siding.
“What the… awh man, when did this happen?” cries Paul in surprise.
The aluminum siding on his house doesn’t look so good. It has this uneven, chalky appearance to it. To make matters worse it’s fading too. “Well, it’s been working for years now so I guess it’s about time for a repainting,” he sighs.
“Well, the whole house exterior needs painting and I can’t do it alone.” Paul thinks critically. “A DIY ‘how to paint aluminum siding’ won’t cut it this time. Guess I’ll need to call in an expert.”
He gets on his computer and starts researching painting contractors in his area of Massachusetts. 2 weeks later Paul finally has someone coming out to paint his aluminum siding.
The painting crew rolls up, surprisingly on time.
As the crew gets everything ready, one of the team members starts walking towards him. He introduces himself as the project manager. “So Paul, do you have any questions or concerns you’d like to talk to me about,” he asks politely.
“Just 1 really,” responds Paul. “How do you paint aluminum siding? As in, what’s your process?”
