If you know anything at all about metal, you're familiar with rust. While metal buildings are virtually impervious to other traditional building threats, like pests, fire and strong winds, they can succumb to moisture damage without proper planning and design. They are also excellent conductors of heat.
One of the first lines of defense for metal buildings are the protective coatings used to seal the metal panels and components, providing a durable barrier against water, debris and environmental pollutants. A close-second line of defense is the combination of high-quality insulation with a radiant barrier. When these three items are in place, you can rest assured your metal building will be the low-maintenance and long-lived structure it was intended to be.
