I have a small extension on my house that has aluminum siding. The paint on the siding is flaking off pretty badly, so much so that there is bare aluminum showing in some spots. I called a painter that has lots of great reviews and he quoted me what seems like a VERY fair price. I asked him what his process would be and here's what he said, tell me if you agree with his assessment...
- Pressure wash the siding with a turbotip
- Allow to dry
- Topcoat with one coat of Duron DTM paint (satin finish). I assume this is their Dura Clad line?
He said that since the current coat is peeling, he couldn't really warranty the work. Is that normal?
He also said it shouldn't be an issue painting at this time, he'll just wait for a couple of days above 50 degrees.
He told me Duron was bought by Sherwin Williams and that the qualities of the paints are pretty comparable. I can request him to buy something different if needed but do you guys regard this as a high quality paint?
Thanks a ton...
