Contaminants Removal
Remove all the contaminants from your metal building that might be affecting the structure. Remove the surface contaminants such as dirt and grease by powder washing the building. After that, remove paint and mildew from past coating with a steel brush dipped in abrasives. Finally, give your metal building a one last wash and let it dry before applying the coating.
