Aluminium windows look great, but the painted finish from the factory can be quite soft. Aluminium whether painted or anodized is silver underneath. If you scratch the surface, that silver will show through and stick out. If this has happened to your windows, you might be wondering can you respray aluminium windows? The answer is yes you can, although to get a factory finish you need to hire a professional.
Spray painting is the technique you need. You can’t brush paint aluminium windows without leaving behind brush marks. The smooth, even, perfect finish of aluminium windows is achieved at the factory by spray painting them. If the aim here is a factory finish – one that appears to be original – the only choice is spraying.
We have spray painted hundreds of aluminium windows and aluminium trim with excellent results. The finish on our paint is more durable than the stock finish your windows came with. It lasts for at least 10-years and protects the metal underneath.
Can you respray aluminium windows to a different colour? If you don’t like the colour of your aluminium windows (perhaps they are black, and you want them grey) we can change the colour no problem. We can also change the colour if you have had to have a new frame put in and it doesn’t match your other windows. We offer a perfect colour and finish match to your existing units. No one will be able to tell.
If you want to respray your aluminium windows remember the aluminium must be clean and free from corrosion. Corroded metals cannot be painted.
The surface also needs to be carefully prepared for paint to adhere properly. If you’re wondering can you respray aluminium windows without preparation, the answer is no. Unlike some surfaces, aluminium should always be primed and painting bare aluminium is a time-intensive job. Call us on 0800 037 0658 for a quote.
