This story show how to prepare vinyl and aluminum siding and windows for painting.

Step 1

Scrub mildewed areas with a stiff brush and a 3-to-1 mix of water and bleach solution. Keep the area wet for 20 minutes. Scrub corroded areas with a synthetic cleaning pad or sanding sponge.

Step 2

Power wash the entire wall, including all scrubbed areas. Prime bare metal with a corrosion-inhibitive latex primer and prime excessively chalked areas with exterior alkyd primer.
