Condition:  From thirty-five years of exposure this low-rise strip industrial building in Houston, Texas had oxidized clear anodized aluminum metal panels, stained anodized aluminum doors and sun faded and bleached anodized aluminum storefront window frames. All of the exterior anodized aluminum finishes were stained, corroded, pitting and oxidized. The silver colored anodized aluminum surface finishes were never washed by rain water and the anodized aluminum finish had oxidized and degraded prematurely. The anodized aluminum clad building was for sale and the anodized aluminum building facade needed to look new, reconditioned and clean again.

Condition:  The commercial bronze anodized aluminum window frames on this industrial building in Clearwater, Florida were painted after they were installed on the building. Over time the brown paint coating on the anodized aluminum window frames got chalky and the pigment faded. The old weathered paint had to be removed. The new owner of the building wanted the anodized aluminum window frames to be restored to the original luster of new brown colored anodized aluminum. If the anodized aluminum was not coated once it was clean and refurbished the anodized aluminum and anodic layer would bleach, stain, acid etch and oxidize. To maintain the integrity of the brown colored bronze anodic finish ownership requested the anodized aluminum storefront window frames be coated and protected with the York Property Company anodized aluminum clear protective coating.

York Property Company Solution:  To refurbish and recondition the weathered and faded anodized aluminum window frames we had to chemically strip the paint off the anodized aluminum finish without damaging the brown anodic layer. Removing the paint was time consuming and required our skill, expertise and experience as commercial anodized aluminum window frame restoration contracting specialists. If the window frames were bleached, burned, acid etched or scratched the anodized aluminum would have to be painted again. The anodized aluminum reconditioning program got the paint off of the anodized aluminum window frames safely and refurbished the anodized aluminum dark brown color and finish.

Condition:  The exterior clear anodized aluminum clad building facade panels, anodized aluminum window frames and anodized aluminum entrance doors on this building in Toronto, ON were faded, stained, dull and oxidized. The anodized aluminum building looked dirty, discolored, streaked and was showing its age. For long-term integrity considerations the owners requested that we clean, repair and restore the damaged, bleached and scratched natural silver colored anodized aluminum clad paneling and anodized aluminum window frames.

York Property Company Solution:  The dirty anodized aluminum building facade cleaning and oxidized anodized aluminum restoration posed many challenges. We could not clean the anodized aluminum or work on the exterior of the building during regular business hours as we would obstruct the main entrance. The anodized aluminum building facade panels were restored over a long weekend to "like new". Our anodized aluminum oxidation cleaning, anodized aluminum scratch removal, weathered anodized aluminum restoration and anodized aluminum clear protective coating programs left the anodized aluminum cladding clean, restored and protected.




Case Study 52 - Bleached & Oxidized Anodized Aluminum Building Facade Restoration Cleaning

We have clear anodized aluminum cleaning, natural colored anodized aluminum restoration and anodized aluminum washing programs to renew, recondition and rejuvenate faded, pitted, salt air / salt water damaged, acid etched, bleached, oxidized and stained anodized aluminum clad panels.

Condition:  This clear anodized aluminum clad owner occupied commercial / industrial building in Houston, Texas was severely bleached, sun faded and oxidized from exposure to diesel exhaust, industrial pollution, corrosive acid rain, ultraviolet exposure and a lack of anodized aluminum remedial maintenance washing. Until management worked with us, they could not find anyone to clean, refinish or restore the damaged, stained and weathered anodized aluminum building facade metal panels. The anodized aluminum clad building was for sale and the anodized aluminum siding panels needed to be refurbished. The anodized color was bleached and the anodized metal sheen was dull. Building management refused to paint the building and were set on restoring the original finish of the clear anodized aluminum.

York Property Company Solution:  A York Property Company Technical Advisor assisted management with the anodized aluminum surface damage analysis and the correct oxidized anodized aluminum cleaning and sund faded anodized aluminum refinishing specification for the cleaning, repair, renovation and restoration of the anodized aluminum building facade metal panels. We refurbished, reconditioned and restored the anodized aluminum cladding as if it had not been stained, blemished or damaged. The anodized aluminum surface corrosion, oxidation and airborne particulate is gone and the gray silver colored anodized aluminum finish is renewed and clean. The anodized aluminum is now protected from automobile exhaust, weathering, sun and u.v. exposure, acid rain and pollution.


"We could not find anyone that could restore our anodized aluminum facade. The only recommendation that we had was to paint the anodized aluminum facade. The president of our company refused to have the anodized aluminum buildings painted because of continuous maintenance - in fact we were going to replace the entire anodized aluminum facade unless we could find someone to do the proper job of anodized aluminum restoration. We cannot thank you enough not only for your performance but also your ability to return our anodized aluminum to its original beauty and luster."

Vice President, Amega Corporation
