Default How to paint alum. trim?

This is a new one for me...

Trim was wrapped about 5 years ago with cheap alum. coil that is now loosing paint after a pressure wash. (so much for the idea that if you wrap your trim you "never have to paint again")

So, would it make sense to reinstall new quality alum. coil or paint. If I paint any recommendations on surface prep or paint?

Thanks!

Default Generalist. (minimalist?)

I'm not in the trade but involved with several remodeling issues (adventures) with my house and my son's. As you have noticed, I've got lots of questions and really appreciate your help. The advice has been great! Thanks, Thomas Zayatz
