The right way:

  1. Lightly wash the metal building with a power washer. This is important. Many times, metal building and pole barns do what is called “chalking.” This happens when the previous coating begins to break down and turn into a powdery substance. You can see this if you walk up to the building and swipe your palm across it. If you look at your hand and it has the paint color now on your palm, the coating is chalking. It creates a chalky residue. While washing this is not completely remove all chalking, it is important to get off as much as possible. This creates a nice, clean surface for new paint to stick to.
  2. Prime any exposed metal or any rusty metal. It is important to use good, quality metal primers for these areas.
