Aluminum siding seems to last forever as long as it's not dented up from
abuse. But over time the finish starts to wear off. I am facing that. I
asked a local home repair store and they said to just use any exterior
paint. I dont agree, and I have heard there is a special paint made for
it. But those store clerks will say anything to make a sale. What is the
product made for it?

The BEST paint for the job is an alkyd modified acrylic latex.From
Benjamin Moore's website:
Moorglo® 100% Acrylic Latex House Paint is a premium
quality, semi-gloss paint fortified with alkyd resin. It delivers a
high-build paint film for excellent durability and long lasting
protection. It has the ability to cover in one coat provided the
surface is in good condition and the color change is not
extreme. It is the perfect coating to repaint aluminum siding.
This is what I had my siding painted with over 10 years ago and it is
still like new. (siding is about 45 years old)

20 years ago or so, I washed my aluminum siding with TSP (the real
stuff) and then rinsed it with a garden hose. I didn't have a power
washer at the time, but I was told you could just power wash it. All
the whitish oxidation came off. I then painted it with regular house
paint, medium gloss, using a roller and brush. It looked great and as
far as I know, it is still good today (moved 10 years ago).
