Great video (as usual). Any reason why you didn’t use an extension wand on
the gun? I know you save your back (as I do) as much as you can.
what kind of machine you use? an airless machine? an air compressor? nice
Is the paint your useing water based or oil?
This looks easy enough on flat roof. With a pitched roof it would certainly
be more challenging, but I am glad to see it can be done. BTW – they guy
doing the spraying should definitely be wearing a mask at the very least.
Enjoyed the video. Good job. You make it look easy.
Nice job Chris. My friend who lives in central Oregon was talking just the
other day about maybe painting his metal roof, so this well done video is
very helpful. Is the process the same for keeping the roof the same color?
I assume the primer helps the paint adhere to the metal? Thanks.

Do you own that lift or did you rent it?
When you guys were priming and shooting over the roof edge arent you
worried about that paint and priming getting all over the side of the
building or the wind carrying it? Seems risky
like watching your videos…very useful and helpful tips
Just painted a roof using a quality paint. 517 tip @ 2200 PSI. Weather was
very sunny and hot. Finish came out very grainy and overspray settled
everywhere. Steam rose from paint after every pass, indicating the heat.
Any idea what went wrong?
Hi can you recommend something for Aluminum ?
this roof is Aluminum older paint still on some areas
How much you can charge per sq ft
I really like your demos, but you should get an extension for your spay
gun, its faster and saves your back.
Thank you for all your painting videos. You’ve made painting look easy, and
I enjoy watching them. I have a shipping container that I would like to
Would you let me know the product number and/or the sales numbers of the
primer and paint from Sherwin Williams (My local Sherwin Williams salesman
could not find the DMT enamel water base that you listed)?
I really appreciate your help.
Help! I’m in Deltaville, VA and can’t find anyone that can paint my
roof…..do you know anyone in my area that can assist me???
roto tip on steel roof? nice swirl marks. speed of the tip to slow anyway
(not enough gpm)
white primer really? tints are cheap. when the black chips out, nice bird
for the love of Bob Ross man, invest in a 3 foot pole gun (WITH SWIVEL)
310 tip? 412FINE FINISH. RAC X
whats the dry film thickness of your final produce?
Likely, since 2012 when this video was shot, you may do things differently .
i do however appriciate the fact that you are out there doin it.
That’s interesting, we use acrylics here in Australia. Good for concrete
tiles, but for metal I’v never liked it, enamel seems like common sense.
Comes down to cost I guess, doing a whole roof in enamel would cost a
fortune. What’s the durability like?
When I say acrylic, I think you guys call it latex, meaning it’s thick and
flexible water based paint, applied with a 517 at minimum, upto about a 525
Bond flex is a great product from SW
painter with20 yrs experience lately having trouble using dtm on roofs with
flashing even at 72 deg why is it not uniform coverage last 2 years, any
one else notice?
I use an extension on my sprayer. It is a lot easier than bending over that
much but after watching your video, I have to wonder if there may be some
quality issue from using it? Is there any reason you do not? Thanks.
Would it be the same process if a metal roof has already been painted? Use
primer, or just powerwash and apply paint?
Looks great. Awesome video and thanks for displaying all the products you
were using on this project. That really helps. Thanks Chris!
