Can you spray paint aluminum soffit?
If you attempt to paint your aluminum soffit the same way you would a surface made of wood, heavy flaking will ultimately ensue. Aluminum soffits are nonporous. This makes them poorly suited for paint. Treat the soffit with a special acidic base coat, formulated for metallic surfaces.
Is spray painting a house as good as brush painting?
Spraying has no brush strokes and offers a more durable satin finish that looks much nicer. Hand brushing a new color may not give you the complete, even coverage you are looking for. A spray gun will give you full coverage and a more even coating for your new paint color.
