The key to painting aluminum siding is preparation and priming. All of the chalkiness must be washed and scrubbed off, and any flaking paint removed. In a nutshell, you need to start with a clean palette. Once everything is clean and dry, you're ready to apply your primer.

Have a professional painter who has done this before give you references on homes they have done & check them and give you an estimate. We just had a painter do our 50 year house siding
and with proper preparation painted our house and it looks great, no brush marks on the siding. It looks like it's new siding. He did two coats.

Bleach, vinegar and borax are all good cleaning agents
