Aluminum single pane window maintenance

 Keeping the outside of your windows well maintained is one of the single best things you can do to enhance your home’s curb appeal. Crisp, uniform windows make any house looked more loved. However, if you have older, aluminum window frames, you know that they can can get dirty, dull and gray looking over time. Fortunately, there are some easy things you can do to spruce up your aluminum window frames.

How to keep your aluminum window frames looking sharp

The first step in cleaning your aluminum window frames is to remove any leaves, dirt, insects and other debris from the window track with a stiff brush, rinsing the area with a garden hose after you finish. Next, you’ll want to attack the frame itself. Special aluminum polishes can help bring back the “like new” shine to your frames. Apply a little of this product to the frame and rub it in with a dry rag, just like you’d polish a car. If your window framed are pitted and/or stained, you can scour them with a little steel wool before you polish them.
