New member here and wanted to ask some advise for a homeowner looking to do some maintenance to his property while during lockdown. Hope everyone staying safe.
I have some metallic areas (steel I-beams and non-structural) of my house that is exposed to outdoor elements. I haven’t done any maintenance since ownership. I have some areas that are showing bubbling and rust. I attached a picture. Is that rust underneath? Can i paint over the rust or would i need to sand it off? Also for metallic is there a specific type of paint I need to use?
I attached a picture to help.
