What options exist to modernize metal-trimmed windows with screens?
Cindy Hagemann on Jan 05, 2018Dave - you can paint the metal trim to update the look of your home. Go to the paint store and ask about the best paint for exterior metal - most likely it will be oil-based.Helpful Reply

Inetia on Jan 07, 2018The grids make the windows look amazing. I would paint the metal frame work a color that will stand out on both the white wall and the bricks as well. Maybe the same color as the door. Just saying... you can barely see that there are shutters on the brick because of the color.Helpful Reply
Cpa14031566 on Jan 07, 2018I agree with everyone that a new shutter color would help. I would also look into painting the 2nd story a color that would blend better with your brick. Right now it just sticks out. There are products that you can even use to paint aluminum siding. Good luck!Helpful Reply
