Question Rust Stains from leak in ceiling on painted wall???

I work in an art gallery and we are very concerned with ceveral rust stains, all of which are seeping through from holes in our metal roofing. What can I do to take care of this problem before it damages anything else...?

Hi Puddybuddy,
Welcome to the forum. A bit more info is required to give you any pertinent advice. You're number one priority should be to fix the roof if you're positive that's where the water is coming from. Assuming that's already been corrected, need to know what kind of wall we're talking about, wallpaper, sheetrock, brick?

As to the roof what kind of metal roofing are we talking about, how old is the roof, pitch (how steep it is) just some more specifics would help us give some good answers. Post back & we'll be happy to help ya out.
