But an aluminum window frame can be a bland part of your outer home decor. Painting your aluminum window frames can add a zesty splash of color that your house needs to stand out in the neighborhood. With our experienced and knowledgeable crew, we can customize your window frames to just about any color. and make them look better then new.

The most important step in the process of painting aluminum windows is the preparation work. Paint will not adhere to aluminum that is not properly prepared. You must palm sand the aluminum, and clean the window frames of all dirt and peeling paint. Skipping these vital steps could cost you more in the long run. Take the time to do the preparation work to avoid a flaking paint job. Surface preparation is the key to a high-quality paint finish.

Here are the steps that we take to ensure that your windows will not only look brand new but will hold up years to come.

1. We sand and or scuff all the aluminum window frames using a sanding block or 100-grit sandpaper to remove all loose, flaking or peeling paint. Using a small hand broom we then sweep off the sanding dust and loose paint chips.

2. Right after that we wash the window frames using a rag or sponge with heavy duty cleaner degreaser and then wipe them with clean wet rag. to ensure that the framing is clean from and dirt, grease and grime. Allow the window frames to dry completely.

3. Cover the middle of the glass areas of the aluminum windows using masking paper and tape. The edge of the glass where it meets the aluminum framing is covered using a product called “liquid mask” we also cover all areas around the windows that you do not want painted, stucco, window ledges, etc

4. Then we spray one to two thin coats of dtm (direct to metal) semi gloss on the aluminum frame using a airless sprayer

5. Finally we go around glass/aluminum frame edge with a razor blade to cut a line and release the paint from the liquid mask. now we are free to remove all the paper, tape and masking liquid.
