Protecting Steel Structures & Structural Steel from Corrosion

Corrosion Threat

Iron and steel are the most utilized metals in exterior structures, renowned for their strength, affordability, and fabrication versatility. However, their resistance to corrosion is less known. Unprotected structures made from these materials will rapidly rust and corrode, compromising the structure's strength and integrity. Over time, severe corrosion can lead to structural collapse, with numerous instances of such failures attributed to neglected corrosion management. Consider the implications for a large apartment building housing hundreds of residents; the importance of protecting the structural framing cannot be overstated. This principle applies to all structures made of steel or iron, including chemical facilities, oil refineries, power plants, dock facilities, and many others.

Corrosion Solution

Regularly painting steel structures is a vital preventative measure against corrosion. Paint acts as a barrier, preventing moisture and environmental contaminants from reaching the metal surface. By selecting appropriate coatings, including primers, base coats, and topcoats designed for corrosion resistance, the lifespan of steel and iron structures can be significantly extended. This practice not only maintains the aesthetic appeal of the structure but more importantly, ensures its safety and durability over time. Regular inspection and maintenance, including repainting, are essential components of a comprehensive corrosion management strategy, safeguarding the structure's integrity and the safety of its occupants.

Painting of Metal Sidings


Exterior metal coatings must withstand environmental conditions like UV rays, sun damage, rain, and temperature fluctuations, which can severely impact the coating's longevity. Steel/metal and aluminum structures are particularly vulnerable to these conditions, especially during seasons with drastic temperature changes. Such fluctuations can cause significant expansion and contraction, potentially loosening the existing coating and leading to premature failure.

Our Solution

For enduring protection, selecting lighter paint colors like whites and light tans is beneficial as they reflect heat and minimize temperature-induced stress on metal sidings. Implementing a high-quality urethane coating, particularly in lighter shades, significantly improves both the structure's aesthetic appeal and resilience. Urethane paints are renowned for their ability to retain color and gloss over extended periods, offering superior resistance to UV rays, fading, and chalking. This approach not only ensures the longevity of the coating but also enhances the overall durability of metal structures against environmental challenges.

Our specialized painting and coating services are designed to protect, preserve, and enhance the value of your steel and iron structures.

With Markley’s Precision Company, you can rest assured that your project is in the hands of experienced professionals committed to excellence, no matter where you are in the USA.
