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 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 ChristopherJayhawk Good stuff.... The "dark" grey was lighter than expected.
Dark grey could've been darker for my tastes but that is totally my opinion. I am going with the black next. Wish these came in sample sizes.

I read on line that if your roof was good and you just wanted to change the color you could paint it.
Paint it ???? Well I looked it up and yes you can and Behr was one most people used. So I order two gallons for my shed in Deep Gray. I hated the brown roof that was on it.
I power wash the roof let it dry and brush on the paint. I could of used a roller or spray gun but I didn't want the splatter from the roller or over spray getting on the new T1-11 siding I just painted.
The paint went on easy , smooth and dried to a finish that it looked like I had new shingles installed.
You got to love stuff like this that works 100%. I'm now thinking of doing my house roof next year.
I wish I had taken some photos of before and after. It's amazing how it transform the looks.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Alpacagirl Good paint, but buy more than you think you need!
First of all I LOVE that this paint comes in so many colors, even though I chose "boring" black it was nice to have other options if I so desired. We used it on an OSB roof on our horse shed so not a typical roofing material. It went on really easily and was smooth finish...not like one of the other brands we have tried in the past. In hindsight we should have bought another 5 gallons to do a 2nd coat and will be doing so in the future. Only complaint is that I wish it had more of a sealant factor so we didn't have to go over the roof again with caulk.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by slynch401k Worse Purchase Ever
I do rehabs. Have a house with a white tile roof.
Power washed and cleaned roof. Sprayed the first coat. It showed poor coverage. Second coat in many areas better, but REALLY how many coats do I need.
I am not going to buy 50 gallons of this stuff to get decent coverage. Buyer beware.
