Cleaning Exterior Aluminum Cladding


How-to clean the exterior EnduraClad® aluminum-clad surface.


Clean the exterior surface with warm, soapy water. Stubborn stains and deposits may be removed with mineral spirits. If your exterior cladding becomes dull, you can use a quality car cleaner and wax to restore the shine. Should you need it, touch-up paint is available at the Pella Window and Door Showroom nearest you.

CautionCAUTION: Do not use abrasive or caustic solvents as they may damage your window. Do not scrape or use tools that might damage the surface. Do not power-wash.
