Cool house, I wonder whose?
Before the project
The owners installed quality metal panels in 2003. At the time of the installation, a crew coated the roof in a custom color the owners requested. Now, ten years later, our observation suggests the original painters did a credible job. Ten years is a long time for coating material to last; this material has begun to show wear.
As the photos show, rust had broken through in places. The panels themselves were still sturdy with decades of life left. The owners asked if the rust could be contained and the roof tint restored to its custom colors. The lady of the house selected a tint from a custom color chart; a demo card prepared showing the tint in the formula of the coating.
Upon arrival, the crew cleaned the roof with a pressure washer. After drying, they applied primer over the entire area. Finally the fellows coated the entire roof with the custom tinted Wearcoat 66, manufactured by Andek Corp.
Details of the project
First "detail" is safety. The roof is steep. The crew attached planks as needed to assist in reaching all corners of the multiple roof areas.
Another detail is the "painting" of the chimney base and the flashing of the lower roofs to the side of the upper areas. Since the crew was already on the roof, the owners asked my crew chief to coat the chimneys white, including the red brick one in back. In the photo below, the roof coating is reflecting the chimney. The manufacturer is confident that 70% of the sheen will still be on the roof in ten years.
