@Scott59

 

Welcome to Workshop. Many thanks for joining the community. I hope you find plenty of great information and advice here, and have some fun along the way. I'm sure you will find plenty of helpful community members like @Brad who are always happy to help.

 

In addition to the video that Brad linked to, you might also find this previous Workshop conversation useful - Painting 80s aluminium doors

 

I'm looking forward to reading about your projects and plans. Is the window refresh part of a bigger renovation of the house?

 

Please let me know if you ever need a hand getting the most from the site.

Re: Painting aluminium Windows

One other option is to clad the face of window frame with timber. This can be done with timber moldings and glued in place after painting or varnishing. Construction adhesive  will hold timber to aluminium.

Great demonstration. I need to pluck up the nerve to try it. It looks so easy but knowing me ... 

Thanks
