Paint metal clad windows?
Our windows are metal clad and still working for us, but the sun has faded the bronze metal cladding on the south side. Has anyone repainted them and had it last for several years? What process and paint did you use?

Will Rustoleum restore my 17 year old deck
This is my deck
Yes, 8 years so far. Clean well, let dry, primer, paint with brush and Rust-Oleum in the can, not spray. It’s oil based so have some mineral spirits handy and tape off anything you don’t want to drip on. We painted white on white.
I think this is the info you need. Your windows will look new again!
I second Elaine's recommendation on RustOleum oil based paint.
That factory finish is probably powder coated and I don’t think painting them will work.
Do you have one you can do some testing on?
I’d go to a full-line paint store and ask them about something more like a stain, something thin, not thick like a paint.
And you know this will be tedious prep work and tedious application, because of the small tolerance in windows, lol.
The man in the video used Rustoleum Bronze. It sound like two of you VETO that process with emphasis on NOT spraying. Is there anyone out there whom can tell me professionally if one is REALLY better than the other: mAs in tougher, longer, lasting, less flaking, etc.?
It looks like I am going to be busy this fall! The south side is 24 feet tall and has 14 windows to the peak! Arrrgh!
Rustoleum Bronze SPRAY Paint! Big Omission on my part!
We used it directly out of the can, I poured it into another can with a handle. And just poured half after stirring. We didn’t spray because I didn’t want to tape that much off and we have brick and stone siding. And I didn’t want to stop every time a wind came up. I just stayed in the shade and moved with the sun so it wouldn’t be so hot. Oh and I worked off scaffolding instead of a ladder, got it at Northern Tool it was on sale and I had a coupon. https://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200441242_200441242
they have their regular scaffolding on sale now as well. If you buy scaffolding, make sure you have the leveling jacks as well, or if your property is level, and not so much landscaping you can use the wheels, just lock them before you climb up.
Oh and I’m assuming you don’t have anodized aluminum which could be cleaned and never need painted
I hate that message they sent. I accidently clicked "resolved", darn it. Does anyone know how to unresolve a message?
I repainted metal outdoor lights. I just went into a Sherwin Williams and asked for the equivalent of a Krylon/Rustoleum type paint that I could brush on instead of spray. Looks great and I did it years ago. As with any paint make sure surface is clean.
Depends on the age of your windows and the cost of them, they were high end at one time. Won’t hurt to do a good aggressive scrub, you may have them.
I dont know how the resolved thing works. Heck I don’t know why if we are in a thread, I would have to reply to myself and not to you.
Glad to hear your drinking water!
