    These rolling shutters on private residences in America are not very common. Mostly they are made of Aluminium or PVC and usually the paint last forever. However if you have the need to paint them for whatever reason, you better are prepared to take them apart, clean, sand, prime and lacquer each slat individually. Considering the effort and costs involved it would be cheaper the replace the whole body of the rolling shutter.

      Thank You Mike Mesmer. Yes just as i had assumed. Two windows will be removed and bricked up in next month or so. So I'm experimenting with taking one shutter down and paint and leave the other one up and paint. I'll leave feedback this arvo

      Hi Don! how long did you not operate them for after painting to make sure they were good and dry? I love the sunshine and need to have mine open when I'm home. It will be hard to live in the dark until I know they are completely dry. :(
