Hi, Mark. I wouldn't even try. Take the screening out, and throw it way, and replace it with fiberglass screening. Are the frames prepainted or are they anodized? If prepainted, just another layer of good paint, maybe even Kynar paint. If anodized, you may need to invest in some preparation efforts. Please flesh out what the frames are made of and how many / how big / how old. Thanks.
