preventing corrosion metal siding

What is the best way to finish the bottom of the sides of a building using 5v metal? The part I am concerned about is where the metal comes near the ground.

I thought about running a course or 2 of block, but I'm not sure that would solve anything with the metal being against the block.

You are using 5v for siding? Not my first choice, but it happens. You can band the bottom of the building with 4/4 or 5/4 Miratec and allow your metal to rest on it, caulking it along the seam. As far as corrosion, 5v will eventually rust once the galvanization wears off, so just be aware.

The best bet is to keep the metal siding off of the ground. When it starts to show signs of rust - prime and paint! Ideally, you'd prime/paint the yr before the rust shows up

What would you prefer to use on the sides of a barn? 5v is the dominant material for barn sides around here..or so not seems. It is painted and not galvalume if that helps any. Good idea about the miratec. .thanks

I've never seen the 5V crimp roofing come prefinished - Shop Union Corrugating 12-ft x 24-in 29-Gauge Plain Ribbed Steel Roof Panel at Lowes.com

Perhaps you mean this instead - Shop Union Corrugating 12-ft x 36-in 29-Gauge Plain Ribbed Steel Roof Panel at Lowes.com

V crimp comes in 2' widths, the other comes in 3' widths and can be had either unpainted or factory coated.

You're right its not the 2' unfinishwd stuff...it's similar to the 2nd lino but with 5 ridges like the old 5v stuff...just assumed it was the same name I guess

It might be called the same ... I've never seen the 5 v crimp in 3' widths or factory finished. Unless they went with thicker steel I would expect that the wider panels would be kind of flimsy with no more bends in the metal to stiffen it up.
