For my roof, I just used Rustoleum spray paint over the galvanized metal. I decided I didn't want to deal with stains. But I think for those that have non-galvanized roofs, after it has the amount of desired rust, you could clear coat over it to minimize the rust stains. I suspect my painted rust will wear off over time, but hopefully by that time it will retain the older less shinny look that brand new metal roofing has.
My current dilemma is working on the upper roof with the lower roof installed with out damaging it. The roof is so thin, it crushes very easily. I will likely do the other side differently, but I'd like to avoid uninstalling the lower roof that I already have in place. I think I am going to try to lay a 2x12 plank across it to disperse the weight. I had my son get up there to do something yesterday in a spot I couldn't reach and even with his light weight, it still crunched it in a couple spots.
