Q: Many Chicago condos/apartments have metal balconies, which is just great for a city that gets a lot of snow (sarcasm). Does anyone have any ideas for dealing with the inevitable rust? Can I spray a few coats of Rustoleum on it, or am I required to use a paint brush and specific type of paint?
My unit faces south, so the balcony sees near-constant sun exposure as well. Help!
