Weathered Anodized Aluminium Roof
I have a bay window with a anodized aluminium roof. When the house was built, the roof had a bright copper color which has weathered over the years. If anyone could be so kind to let me know if there is anything I can do to restore the color without spending too much money, that would be much appreciated.Girish Arora

Sorry, Girish, the copper colored dye may be hopelessly faded. But before giving up, you might try a specialty aluminum cleaner-leveler. One of our sponsors, Everbrite [a finishing.com supporting advertiser], offers a product you might consider.
