Frequently asked questions when it comes to aluminum painting

1. Can aluminum siding be painted?

Absolutely. When it comes to aluminum siding, following the procedure is essential.  The preparation stage is just as important and must be tended to just as thoroughly.  Because aluminum siding can heat up quickly in sunlight, many homeowners opt for a lighter paint colour.  But aesthetically, brighter and darker colours also look great on aluminum siding


Generally, most brands will carry an exterior paint that is specifically designed for metal adhesion and holds up against a variety of weather conditions.  Depending on your aluminum siding age and state, the cleaning, repair, and priming steps may vary. 

2. Should you paint aluminum siding?

For some homeowners, a simple change of colour is all you may be looking for. For others, your aluminum siding may be decades old and very faded.  If the surface is starting to oxidize or there are areas with heavy pitting, it is definitely time to tend to your aluminum siding

Oxidation can cause discoloration and a kind of white powder to rub off on your hand. While your siding may look rough and may need repair in certain spots, painting aluminum siding is usually cheaper than replacing it. 

3. How to prepare aluminum siding for painting?

  1. The first step is Power washing.  Remember to wear whatever protective gear is necessary. Power washing your aluminum siding can be done with something like TSP as an etcher, a bleach solution, or a general cleaning agent.  To begin, use a lower setting and practice moving your arm back and forth in a controlled manner.  When you get the hang of it, increase your pressure and make sure to point the nozzle downward so that no water sprays up under the panels.  There may be mildew, mould, bird droppings, bird nests, or honeycombs to get rid of.  In this stage, you may notice some minor repairs needed.  Make a note of these and allow for a couple of days for dry-time. 


  1. Next, you want to caulk tiny holes or over any nail heads.  By caulking these imperfections, your paint will have a smoother finish.  Some panels may need further repair or may even need to be replaced. You can use replacement patches to cover larger holes, or you can even cut a part away and attach another. 


  1. Once you are satisfied with your repairs, you can tape off any trims, doors, or windows you don’t want to be sprayed while painting.  If you would prefer to skip this step or you simply don’t have the time, you can use a hand-held paint shield as you go. 


  1. For many projects, using a sprayer is a time-friendly option. And if your aluminum siding is older, applying a coat of primer will put your mind at ease.  Anything from a metal-etching primer to an oil-based primer may be recommended depending on the aluminum condition.  But there are lots of options for exterior acrylic latex-based paint with built-in primer.  So using a separate one is not always necessary.  If you do decide to prime, it can take two to four hours for dry-time.


  1. Before painting, choose a practice section and adjust the nozzle until the paint is spraying evenly with the least amount of streaking.  You want to move your arms back and forth from the same distance to ensure even distribution. And to overlap as you go, from side to side, for the fullest coverage. On average, the house painting process can take anywhere from two to five days if multiple people are working on it.

4. What is an aluminum window?

An aluminum window is “lightweight” and “strong”. The panes are made of glass-like most other windows, but when the frame is made of aluminum, it tends to be thinner, which means the windows are larger than usual.  Aluminum windows are becoming popular once more due to an appreciation for the aesthetic and style.

5. Why would anyone want aluminum windows?

Aluminum windows can look like metal or be resurfaced to look like another material.  They last from 20 to 40 years depending on weather conditions and can be fitted with a thermal break.  A double-pane aluminum window is energy efficient and can provide homes with the necessary security. There is a variety of locking mechanisms such as a restrictor or thumbscrew lock that can be added to frames, and the windows can be tinted for further protection. An aluminum frame itself requires very little care, and as an environmentally friendly material, aluminum is recyclable

6. How to remove aluminum windows for cleaning?

Using a pry bar or putty knife, you can remove the window in one piece by shuffling out the edges.  You may need a heat gun to warm rubber fittings. If this is not realistic, then you can try taking one thing apart at a time. Loosen any visible screws and remove the storm window from the outside first. Make a large X with tape on each pane of glass in case they break and pull them out carefully. 

Some screws may be hidden in grooves along with the inner framework.  Make sure to loosen these as well and take the sliding part out first, if applicable. Then, using a pry bar once more, you can lift the frame away from the wall.  If the aluminum has started to oxidize or if there is lots of dust accumulating in the crevices, taking your aluminum windows apart may help with deep cleaning. 

7. What is the cost to paint Aluminum windows and Aluminum siding?

Painting aluminum windows and siding is more cost-effective than replacing aluminum.  It is a great way to improve your home exterior and to increase its value.  The cost to paint your home is based on how long it will take, how many people are working and how simple the job is. Depending on your budget, you could tackle aluminum siding and windows together or separately.

Average completion time for aluminum window and aluminum siding painting

One of the questions people often ask is how long does it take to paint aluminum siding. For both small and large Toronto houses, the whole process of painting aluminum siding can be completed within two to five days.

Painting aluminum windows typically takes between one and three hours per window. It takes an average of 2 to 4 days for a small to medium-sized house and up to 14 days for larger ones. 

What could affect the price of an aluminum window and aluminum siding painting?

The price of painting aluminum windows and siding can vary for a variety of reasons.  One of the greatest reasons is the size of the home.  A larger home will require more preparation time, painting time and materials used.  Weather and scheduling can also play a factor.  When weather conditions are far from optimal, it may affect the speed of labour as well as dry times.  And if a project requires urgency or extra tools/materials because the difficulty level is high, this will cost more in labour.  Besides these more common factors, using a credit card for payment comes with higher fees than other forms of payment

2. Do I have to move my furniture before the painters come?

Usually, YES. Painters can do it for you, but that will add to your project hours and increase your overall estimate. But, if there’s any oversized furniture that you cannot move on your own, it is usually ok to ask them to give you a hand to move it a bit to allow them to paint.
