Painting eavestrough, soffits and fascia - September 25th 2000



Question from: Larry
Edmonton, AB

Dear Shell,

I would like to change the color of my metal eavestrough, soffits, and fascia, it is presently chocolate brown. Can it be painted to hunter green and if so what would be required to do it?

Thanks, Larry

Dear Larry,

Yes, Aluminum soffits, fascia and gutters can be painted. First, clean using my powdered Shell Buseyís Home Cleaning Formula available at most building supply stores. Wash with the heavy duty mixture and rinse well. Using the best acrylic latex exterior paint apply two coats 8 hours apart. If the temperature is going below freezing at night you should wait until spring to do this project. Also make sure you donít do this in the hot sun.

Itís just that easy.
