Metal Building and Metal Roofing Warranties

Warranties for Your Quality Metals Direct, Inc. Products

40 YEAR PAINTED

Galvalume or steel substrate coated with zinc then finished with a silicone polyester paint system consisting of a primer coat top and bottom and the primary color applied to the top of the panel.

  • Warranty: 40 year limited warranty, pro-rated from year 1, non-transferable, must be installed within the continental US.
  • Coverage: Paint peel, check, chip, or crack resulting from a manufacturers defect for a period of 40 years from the date of invoice providing the project the material is installed on meets the limitations of a minimum slope of 3:12 or greater, not used for animal confinement, is installed within the contiguous United States, and is not within 1000 feet of an aggressive environment such as, but not limited to, salt water. Excessive chalk and fade is covered for the first 10 years (note: chalk and fade occur normally as the binders and pigments of the paint system break down, fade is expected to be uniform with equal exposure to the sun).

25 YEAR GALVALUME

Steel substrate coated with a molten hot dip action providing a coating thickness of .55 ounces of zinc/aluminum (AZ55) per square foot of panel top and bottom.

  • Warranty: 25 year limited warranty, pro-rated from year 1, non-transferable, must be installed within the continental US.
  • Coverage: For a period of 25 years the panel will not perforate due to red rust provided the project the material is installed on meets the limitations of a minimum slope of 3:12 or greater, not used for animal confinement, is installed within the contiguous United States, and is not within 1/2 mile of an aggressive environment such as, but not limited to, salt water. Due to the characteristics of the metallic coating, cosmetics cannot be controlled and are not covered by the limited warranty. This metallic coating can and will weather non-uniformly. Galvalume coating was developed as a functional finish for projects where aesthetics are not a major concern.
  • Properties: Galvalume is a mixture of roughly 45% zinc and 55% aluminum with a small amount of silicon to promote an even flow over the substrate. This coating also derives its shade, size, and pattern of spangle from the impurities in the elements of the molten hot dip bath.

GALVANIZED

Steel substrate coated with molten zinc in a hot bath dip action providing a coating thickness of .90 ounces of zinc (G90) per square foot of panel top and bottom.

  • Warranty: NONE
  • Coverage: NONE
  • Properties: Galvanized coating is roughly 98% zinc with a small amount of silicon to promote proper flow. The shade and spangle (patchy appearance of the coating) are due to impurities in the zinc and can vary. Zinc coating is a sacrificial weak metal coating that will sacrifice itself to protect the noble metal (in this case steel) from galvanic chemical reaction accelerated by moisture from humidity, condensation, rain, and snow.
