If you're considering replacing your metal siding, reconsider! While the original paint on your siding may eventually wear down, chalk, and fade, the metal underlying can last indefinitely. Vinyl supplanted aluminum siding as the more economical maintenance-free siding option in the 1980s, and while it has its advantages, it is definitely worth it to preserve your aluminum siding.
The presence of powdering or chalking on your aluminum siding does not imply that it is unclean. It signifies that the protective resins that hold pigments in place have faded as a result of years of UV degradation, leaving the pigments exposed and turning to powder. Powdered siding isn't pretty, but if you keep power washing it away, you're sanding down your paint coating with water, losing even more protection. Fortunately, all your aluminum siding need is the strengthening and protection of our self cross-linking siding paint.
