Re THIS POST FROM 2014- Help – it’s raining rust on my table saw! – by endgrainy …

My lower garage has the same problem. The property slopes down in the back and there is a garage below on the back side of the house – exactly underneath the ground level garage. THe house was built in 2000, I bought it in 2013 and did not notice any rust on the lower garage metal ceiling – nor did the building inspector. A year or so later I noticed rust stains on the floor of the garage, I thought it was from the parked tractor until I found rusty spots all over the tractor and all over! Hence I looked at the ceiling and found many small rust spots and some larger spots, dripping rust. I sanded, used rustoleum paint (the rust broke thru’ within 6 mos.) , later sealed w/rubber like caulking material….rust broke thru’ again.
Initially I thought maybe the water from snow melting on the garage floor above which was seeping through OR a perimeter drain in front was broken. First I treated the garage floor, then bought a heavy duty car mat to catch all the water from melting snow and lastly, redirected the gutter for six months to remove the water source. Nothing has stopped the rusting or dripping.
One suggestion to the previous post is an application of two-part foam insulation. The idea of pre-sanding is enormous – the garage is 22×24 and most is now covered with rust spots and rusty rubber coated spots. Yuck!
What is the product exactly? I have consulted several tradesmen (and an engineer) and none have the answer or solution.
Any suggestions are appreciated.

Have your say...
