Hi- My aluminum siding is chalky and in desperate need of paint.
Should I buy semi-gloss or flat? Is new aluminum siding considered
flat or semi-gloss? Also, I bought Krud Kutter from Home Depot for the
pre-wash. If after cleaning should I prime the siding before painting?
there are paints that can go over chalking paint, as chalk is difficult
to completly remove, and should be, tsp works. chalk is cheap paint
oxidising. Sherwin williams , and others have a line with lifetime
warranty, that they say will bond to some chalk , use cheap paint it
wont bond for long.
To chalk that bad and go to aluminum it has really oxidised away....
Glidden, check their warranty and recomendation on the can.. Sherwin
williams , co owned store , co trained, make their own product, they
will assist you in your job completely, and will usually visit your job
to ensure you do it right..They warranty their product, and have a
product FOR your problem , nothing better than pro advise at your
lightly brushed, then washed off. The paint washed off to bare
aluminum. I was concerned the cleaner was to aggressive so I sampled
another part of the house - more protected - and the Krud Kutter just
cleaned and didn't remove the paint. Since part of this house will be
stripped to the aluminum - should I prime or just cover with paint?
I'll cover with paint the more protected and less chalky areas of the
siding but I'm still not sure about the bare aluminum. Also is Glidden
exterior paint from Home Depot any good?
