Choosing the Right Metal Roof Paint

Selecting the right color and quality of metal roofing paint is essential to keeping your metal roof looking sharp and flawless. With an expected lifespan of over fifty years, a metal roof is an easy-care roofing solution. Owners only need to clean away debris and apply a fresh coat of paint to keep it looking sharp and flawless.

Choosing The Right Metal Roof Paint Colors

Choosing the correct paint and primer for your metal roof can help extend the life of your roofing system. The type of paint used has a direct effect on the energy-efficiency of the roofing system. For these reasons, it’s essential for buyers to know the options available to them. Sherwin-Williams and Valspar are the leading providers of compatible metal roof paints, finishes, and coil coatings.

Put Your Roofing Worries Behind You

When you want to simplify your roofing and put the common worries of traditional roofs behind you, metal roofing offers the solution.

Traditional asphalt roofs last between 10 – 20 years. Metal roofs, when properly maintained and depending on the material, can last anywhere from 40 – 70 years. Instead of absorbing the heat and raising the energy costs, metal roofs reflect UV rays. In sunny southern locations, this improvement to your property can save you a lot!
