Painting a Shingle Roof

I am wanting to change the look of my shingle roof. Is there a product that you can paint a shingle roof with? If so, is it durable.

I asked the folks at Benjamin Moore (my favorite paint) and they said it can be done using the same paints you would use for siding, but keep in mind that if you choose to use a paint on your roof you will very likely need to touch it up once or twice a year.

It is however, not often done, and I have no knowledge or experience on how it lasts or looks.


I'm not so sure that you would want to paint your roof....its like spray painting plastic... It'll look good for a while but the weather WILL take a toll on it and youll be back to square one an overlay { shingles on top of shingles} is the other option that I know of....can you live with the color until the next hurricane?
