    Either Paint it or cover it with Contact, or use a sheet to cover the actual awning.

    Power wash it very well. Then paint a more modern color. Use paint made to paint metal.

    Clean the awning well, let dry, and then spray with a good paint for aluminum. Usually white awnings look best either from the inside or outside.

    You can bring your worn and tired aluminum awnings back to life with a splash of paint. If you choose to paint the awnings, you'll need to put together spray-painting gear. Using a brush or roller to paint your aluminum awning can be difficult due to its shape.

    Rustoleum makes a product for aluminum that is very good.

    I recently powerwashed my patio cover which is aluminum. I used Zep power wash cleaner. Looks brand new.
