Weathered roofs, siding or accents are instantly noticable. While matching the eventual final patina can be achieved through textured paint systems like Rustic Rawhide, a weathering steel metal panel is unique in its constantly changing and unpredictably striking patina.
It is always important to remember that weathering steels are essentially designed to rust. The outer coating of rust is there to protect the inner layers of metal. While A606 was designed specifically for this process, please remember that a weathered roof is ultimately still a deteriorating surface. What makes it beautiful also makes it corrode faster than a painted metal panel.
Depending on your location, the process of completing the outer patina of the panel can vary. In dryer climates like Montana, we see our products typically patina slower than in locations with higher humidity or rainfall.
