Windows and doors are an important part of the look and function of any home. They can be a source of frustration and annoyance if they do not work well and spoil the appearance of a valuable property if they look dated and weathered through aging.
Restoring old aluminium windows, doors and screens is an extremely efficient way to modernize a home and lift values, without the high cost in time and money of replacing these components.
Aluminium windows in houses built in the 1970’s to early 1980’s did not have the luxury of modern day powder coatings to provide protection against aging and weathering. They were either silver (uncoated) or had a rather primative coating in mission brown.
Today, some 30 years down the track, these finishes are showing unsightly surface deterioration. While aluminium does not technically ‘rust’ like steel, it does develop an oxidation. Fortunately this affliction is predominantly on the surface and does not generally compromise the structural integrity of the base aluminium metal.
The Window Doctorz specialised restoration process removes this oxidation and thoroughly cleans the surface in preparation for the new paint application.
