    Default Metal Roof with Peeling Paint

    I own a historic home built in 1794 which has a heavy metal roof. Over the last several applications, I've been having trouble with the paint peeling or flaking off only a year or two following application. Any suggesting on a quality paint to use or application techniques. All painting has been done by licensed contractors. Thanks

    Depending on where you are, Google Rhino Shield and see if a dealer is in your area. They have several specialty primers and adhesives for differant applications for roofing and will carry some length of warranty. The top coat has ceramics which is Energy Star rated and is about 12 mils thick! They will want to do the application due to the warranty but is probably worth it considering your situation.
    The product line is super high quality and I have used them in Ga. on many projects. (especially when going "Green")
    P.S. They also carry metallic finish coats.

    Uses of salt in paint is very good. It make paint very strong and durable. So my suggestion is use any paint but include salt in it.
    One such program Hidden Content has helped to support by a grant from the Winnick Family Foundation.

    Which type of paint you use is not necessary. The Pre requisite is how do you paint? First remove all rust and dirt. Use a wire brush to scrub away rust and wash away dirt with a strong cleaner that will not leave a residue. Bleach will remove any mold. Prime the surface with an oil-based or latex anti-corrosive primer. Allow the primer to dry thoroughly for at least 24 hours. Primer is typically heavy and does not always feel wet or tacky before it is completely dry. Tint the primer with the same colors if you are using a custom paint. This tinting will allow you to use fewer coats of paint. Decide on what kind of finish you want. A good paint in flat, semi-gloss or high-gloss will go smoothly over the primer once it is dry. Use always good brushes for the paint.
