Here are some excerpts:
3. Unless defective, a steel skin panel will in most cases not rust from exposure to moisture. It is protected by layers of high grade galvanization, primer and a durable paint finish.
16. Some building departments will require a wall base channel inspection to view the type and placement of concrete anchors prior to covering them up.
22. Deciding on a plumb fascia or square fascia at the roof edge early in the design is very important, because this effects roof panel lengths, the package components, and the amount of panel cutting that will be required.
