Hello @julie60

 

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. Thank you for joining us and sharing your desire to paint your aluminum windows.

 

Painting aluminum window frames can be done and is a cheaper alternative to removing the entire set. The key to a successful paint job is preparation. Give the window frame a thorough clean with a brush and vacuum cleaner, making sure to remove all forms of dust and debris both inside and out. If there are weather seals attached to the window frame these must be removed as well. 

 

Masking off the area around the window with painter's tape and a plastic drop sheet will prevent over spray from marking your wall. Putting a canvas drop sheet will protect your floor while spraying. With proper preparation, you should be able to achieve excellent results.

 

Here are  some handy step-by-step guides:

 

 

 

 

We look forward to seeing your newly painted window frames. If you need more information please let us know.

Re: How to change colour of old aluminium windows?

Hello

 

We are renovating our home and I have have spray painted our aluminum windows from blue/black to white.

 

Eric has provided you with all the info.

 

When I sprayed my very first window I was nervous but after a while you will get the hang of it. 

 

I'm doing the laundry windows tomorrow.

 

All the best.

Hi @Sooze

 

Thank you so much for showing us this update of your newly painted aluminum windows. It's amazing to see the number of remodeling projects you've been doing around the house. I'm sure this will give @julie60 the added confidence to paint their own window frames.

 

We look forward to seeing more.

 

Eric
