Question

I want to paint my garage, and It is covered by aluminum siding. Which type of paint do I use? Also, if I touch the siding, a white powder-like substance will adhere to my hand. Does this make a difference in prepping the siding for painting? Thanks!!

Melissa:

Most major companies make a paint specifically for aluminum siding - look forit at a reputable dealer, Benjamin Moore, Sherwin Williams, etc.

That chalky material is the old finish. Best solution to 'prepping' the siding before painting is a powerwash - check with a local company, or se if you can rent the machinery.
