Rust on walkways, driveways, roofs, walls, and masonry are frustrating challenges for some homeowners in Manheim, Lititz, Gap, Landisville, Quarryville, Elizabethtown, Millersville, and throughout the greater Lancaster County area. Rust stains and discolorations are easy to spot from a distance, which makes them particularly unattractive. As many disheartened homeowners can tell you, even well-maintained properties may eventually have to deal with rust stains. That’s because the cause of rust isn’t always apparent, and even a relatively small spot of rust can quickly spread over a wide area with the right combination of moisture and temperatures.
In newer concrete, hard-to-detect trace amounts of iron, iron sulfide pyrite, or marcasite can eventually cause severe rust staining. In this circumstance, you may notice little streaks of rust throughout a concrete surface that often follow the slope. In other cases, the homeowner inadvertently begins the rust process through the use of some fertilizers. Iron-rich minerals found in many popular lawn and garden fertilizers may cause rust. When in minerals in these products remain on certain surfaces and materials long enough, moisture can eventually trigger rust. This is a common cause of rust on retaining walls.
Even metal roof flashings, metal chimneys, nails, lintels, bolts, railings, or other metals on your roof can eventually degrade and cause rust in small spots. Rain and snow then wash traces of rust and minerals across roof surfaces to produce large patches of red or reddish-brown that can range from a faded tinge to a deep, rusted discoloration.
