Weathering steel: As with wood, once metal has been painted, it needs to be maintained to avoid deterioration and rust. Another approach is to use weathering steel, a special alloy often referred to by its copyrighted name, Cor-Ten steel. This material allows the steel to form an even rust, creating a protective layer on the steel. Eero Saarinen first used the material on a building in 1964 when he designed the headquarters for John Deere. The architecture firm of Stern McCafferty chose weathering steel for the addition to this traditional New England house.
