Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mmc Great product, but plan on two coats
This stuff covered the ugly brown asphalt shingle roof i have, and looks pretty good for the most part! Buyer beware, it goes on very very thick and you will need 2-3 times the quantity you think you need. I bought 2 gallons for a tiny garage roof based on the estimates on the description, but ran out about 1/3 the way into the job. Just bought 4 more gallons and now planning to do a second coat in some areas due to poor coverage. get the thickest nap roller you can find. You may also need to use a brush to get the hard to reach spots between shingles... or just put it on very thick and hope it fills the gaps.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mikem17 Great Idea- But Need LOTS of Paint
My roof is only 2 1/2 years old but my wife and I wanted to change the color so it matched the siding and shutters. I was happy to find a product like this that I could use on asphalt shingles, and very happy to read about the coverage. Unfortunately, the coverage estimates are no where near accurate for architectural shingles. Rather than one 5 gallon bucket of primer and one 5 gallon bucket of paint for my 1,800 sq foot roof, I had to use 12 gallons of primer and about the same for the paint- I'm waiting for my third order of paint to arrive to finish the project. The cost of the project is triple what I budgeted. I'm using a 1 1/4" nap roller. I'd have to use even more paint if I wanted to cover every shingle overlap entirely. I assume the architectural shingle requires more paint than a traditional style shingle. I wish I knew this before starting the project.
My wife and I are thrilled with the look of the roof (we used matte black).

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mikem17 Great Concept, but you need a LOT of Paint.
I've read reviews where a 5 gallon bucket can cover 1,800 sq. feet on an asphalt shingle roof.
I have an asphalt shingle roof, but it's architectural (dimensional) style. For the same size roof, it took me 12 gallons of primer (at $100 per 5 gallons) and will take me probably 15 gallons of paint (not done yet).
My wife and I are very happy to have found a paint for asphalt shingles, we simply didn't expect the cost to be so high to complete the project.
I imagine there is much better coverage for a traditional asphalt shingle roof.
I used a 1 1/4" nap rollers (lots).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VTWales33 Awesome Product! Saved Thousands!
This product exceeded my expectations. I bought a home with a roof in a great shape but I wanted to paint the exterior and the roof color was brown and did not coordinate well. We painted the roof with the charcoal color and it looks amazing! The product has excellent coverage, it took about 5 gallons to cover the roof of a 1920 SF home. The product is pretty thick and imagine it seals up any potential leaks that may be forming as well. I will definitely use again if needed!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MrFixit we are glad we used the multi-surface roof paint
We used the multi-surface roof paint to spruce up the look of the roof. It looks great and we have had several inquiries as to what we did to make the roof look so good. We would recommend this product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beck Nice product - only time will tell.
I applied the Behr roof paint to shingles on a loafing shed roof which slopes down sharply in the front like a mansard roof. The effort here was to even out the color of the roof and add strength to the shingles so I won't have to replace the roof for a few years. This product went on easily with a roller and brush. It has a smooth texture - not too thick - and the color spread on evenly throughout the job. The roof now looks like it has new shingles from 15 feet away. We'll see how it holds up over this winter. If it lasts for a few years I'll even give it 5 stars. Right now it seems like a good stop gap measure. If there are competing products out there for the price I couldn't find them.
