Exposing any metal flagpole to extreme humidity or rain could cause it to rust. While most flagpoles come with an anti-corrosion finish to prevent rusting, the finish deteriorates with time, leaving the flagpole exposed.
Therefore, it is recommended that flagpole owners regularly check their flagpoles for rust. Rust weakens the flagpole and reduces its ability to withstand wind speeds. Consequently, increasing the probability of the flagpole falling during strong winds.
Minor corrosion can be solved by cleaning using metal cleaning solutions. On the other hand, severe corrosion might indicate the need for a new flagpole. Contact us today for any flagpole purchase, repair, or installation needs.
