Is that a galvanized metal Rob? It's interesting that the white on the bottom doesn't seem to be failing, at least in the pics.

I think the deep base just couldn't handle the heat, white is intact. It is only the front side (gets the sun worst) they want done. It is galvanized, have not bid it yet, still debating.

They likely didnít etch the galvanized metal first, so whatever that first layer is - itís failed. If you donít strip it all now, whatever is left on will come off later.

Gabe - Wouldnt he need to use a Wash Primer for the galvy? Probably why the previous job is coming off in sheets to the metal.

I'd pressure wash [with chemicals}...let dry and apply a galvanized primer.{if needed}

Then top coat with a Devoe DTM product: Devflex HP

It says you don't need a primer if prepped properly..I'd look into that...

May be applied directly to interior or exterior steel and aluminum, and to properly prepared galvanized metal, wood or masonry surfaces.


Advantages:
  • Alkyd-like hardness and durability

  • All purpose finish for multiple surfaces
  • Excellent resistance to grease, oil and water
