Garage Framing

The opening to my garage is framed in wood and painted white. On my prior home, the framing was wrapped in aluminum and maintenance free. The current framing is in need of a paint job and I want to wrap it in aluminum so I don't have to worry about it anymore. Any idea how involved this would be? Would a building supply store be a good place to start at? I am a bit concerned because the frame is not a perfect square. The top of each opening is framed with roughly 45 degree arches. I'm wondering how easy it would be to wrap aluminum around that. Thanks!

OK - thanks. I'll start there. I imagine the aluminum is pretty pliable so the task should not be too bad. Thanks!
