How-To Clean and Refurbish Oxidized or Sun Faded Anodized, or Powder Coated Window Frames.
Aluminum window frames and extrusions can fade and oxidize from exposure to the sun. Anodized aluminum can get ugly pits from salt corrosion if located near the ocean. Even new aluminum can be ruined by pitting or staining by stucco or mortar which ruins the protective finish.
If your painted or powder coated windows are faded or dull, the entire building loses curb appeal.

HOW TO RESTORE DULL, FADED, OXIDIZED ANODIZED, PAINTED OR POWDER COATED ALUMINUM

What Do I need to restore my Window Frames?
You can first test your window frames to see if the aluminum can be restored. Clean an area with soap and water with a sponge or scrub pad. Observe the aluminum while it is clean and still wet. If the color and luster return, then your aluminum can be restored to look great again.
