Aluminum siding was invented in the 1940's as an alternative to the predominantly used clapboard siding. It was lightweight, easy to install, and considered low-cost because the paint was baked on prior to installation, eliminating the need for a traditional paint job.
Even though these qualities do make aluminum siding low maintenance, they do not make it NO maintenance. Over time, the baked-on color begins to chalk off and fades the exterior substantially. While re-siding completely is always an option, it is not the most cost effective.
If proper prep work and cleaning is done, paint will adhere perfectly to aluminum siding, and will cost about half as much to have done.
