Packaging
Roofing, siding and trim are packaged using protective packaging to protect the goods during transport.  Storage recommendations are provided at the front office to help ensure the goods are stored correctly before installation.
The customer, however, should take whatever steps necessary to ensure the goods remain dry after transport or delivery.  Roofing and siding panels are protected with plastic sheeting or cover panels and fastened together with wood battens.  Additional wood skids will be used when deemed appropriate by EPIC Steel for that order.  Additional crating charges may apply to specific orders.  This kind of protection helps ensure the goods are not damaged during shipping handling, and storage.
Panel Cutting
When cutting painted panels, ensure the metal particles and fragments do not end up on the painted surface. Metal particles on the painted surface will result in rusting and pitting in that area. EPIC Steel suggests that the panel be turned upside down and all cutting be done looking at the backside of the material. Installers should be certain to wipe away any debris from the material after cust to prevent this problem. Panels should be cut in an area where the metal particles do not end up on other panels or building materials. Failure to remove metal particles from the panels results in a voided warranty.
Policy
EPIC Steel assumes no responsibility for materials after they are picked up or delivered to the customer.  EPIC Steel is not responsible for any goods left unprotected or stored incorrectly by the customer that results in damage or white rust to the panel.

Storage Instructions
If metal roofing or siding panels are not to be used immediately, the panels should be stored in a cool dry place. It should be unbundled and stood on end indoors if possible. It is very important to store the panels in a dry, well ventilated area. If the product cannot be stored indoors, elevate one end of the bundle to allow any moisture to run off while being stored. Do not store panels in direct contact with the ground. Make sure to put some type of block under the load when set on the ground. Ensure that there is good air flow around the entire bundle to avoid moisture buildup around the bundle. Moisture trapped between the panels will cause paint to bubble and white rust to form. EPIC Steel assumes no liability for panels that are not used immediately after being purchased.
Terms of Payment
Net 30 Days on approved credit lines. Discounts are not allowed on cash sales or freight charges. On late payments, a service charge of eighteen percent (18%) per annum, or the maximum allowed by law, will be applied to all invoices over 30 days.

The title and ownership of goods herein shall remain with seller until final payment has been made in full. If payment is made by check, note or similar writing, title and ownership shall not pass until such check, note or similar writing shall have been accepted and seller has been fully paid in legal tender.
White Rust/Oxidation
White rust on bare galvanized metal is the result of zinc oxidation in the absence of air or oxygen. This occurs in coil or bundles of sheet metal that are nested and absorb moisture from humidity in the air or direct rainfall. The oxidation appears as a white chalky buildup on the surface of the metal. This can be stopped by applying a vinegar solution or light oil, such as WD-40.
