Maintenance Considerations for your Aluminum Railing System
The beauty of aluminum railing systems is that they require virtually no maintenance.
They are intrinsically waterproof and the durable powder-coating stays looking great even after years of exposure to the elements. Over time, you may notice a white ‘chalk’ or powder that forms on the surface. This is normal and can be cleaned and polished (using ‘Vim’, ‘Soft Scrub’ or a cut-polish) to bring back the sheen. See more details on our Care and Cleaning page.
For homes directly exposed to salt water or high pollution areas, you will need to periodically check for a build-up of salt or residue. Upon detection of this damaging build-up, monthly cleaning of the aluminum surface is required to regain the product’s original look, quality and luster, and to maintain its warranty eligibility.
