Metal roof painting projects don’t come along everyday, but when they do, it’s always a nice change of pace.
Our most recent roof painting project in Pleasanton, Ca. needed quite a bit of preparation prior to painting~
As you can see from the below photo, the original baked on color was rust. It was repainted a tan color a few years later. After 8 years of baking in the sun and possibly a lack of a full preparation of sanding and priming it began to peel in small patches…all over!
After three days of washing, sanding and priming, David and Bob were ready to begin painting. Using a Hi-Lift proved to be the best piece of equipment for this job. The boom reached over the entire roof surface which then freed them up to easily move around the roof and not have to rope-off. Always a “plus” when painting!
For priming purposes, our Sherwin Williams paint representative recommended we use “Uniflex Rust Inhibitive Primer -Product 36-520” and for the paint application he recommended “Uniflex Elastomeric Roof Coating-Product 650118003”.
Five days, 42 gallons of primer and 36 gallons of paint later…finally done!
If you are wanting to paint a metal roof yourself (hopefully it’s a smaller version of 9,000 sq. ft.) we are happy to point you to the correct products and application process, but if you are thinking your metal roof or surface may be too large of a project for you to complete we are always available to give an estimate.
