Product Overview

  • Creates reflective, rust-resistant barrier to seal/protect roof
  • Expands with roof movement to avoid cracking and peeling
  • Low-odor, low-VOC formula backed by 10-year limited warranty
Sta-Kool 805 Metal-X is a tough, white elastomeric roof coating that is formulated for exceptional bonding strength to metal roof surfaces. This high performance product also contains rust inhibitors, which provide long-term protection to metal surfaces. Metal-X expands and contracts with the roof's movement to resist cracking and peeling. The bright white finish keeps metal roofs cooler by an average of 50 degrees compared to uncoated metal, thus minimizing heat stress associated when metal roofs expand under the hot sun. Metal-X provides a protective barrier that reflects, seals, and protects from the elements. In turn, this provides a longer life to metal surfaces, helps to cool surfaces and will help reduce interior temperatures. This environmentally advanced formula helps reduce energy cooling demand, is low odor, and low VOC, making it a great choice for your metal roof. Covers approximately 50 sq. ft. - 75 sq. ft. per Gal. per coat depending on porosity of the surface.

Questions & Answers

Can this be sprayed on

Can this be sprayed on
Asked by: 1960
Yes, I rolled the first coat on a corrugated metal roof which was pretty time consuming. I went to Home Depot to rent a sprayer for the 2nd coat and was told by the kid at the rental desk this product cant be sprayed with any of their rental equipment. After doing more research on my own I decided to go get the medium duty paint sprayer from another Home Depot location. Worked perfect and only took 30 minutes for an 18'x50' roof. Rolling it took over 3 hours.

Can you apply this product already on a roof that has rust on it?

Asked by: NickC
Thanks for your interest in Sta-Kool 805 Metal-X. Rusty metal must be cleaned with a wire brush and primed with a rust inhibitive primer before application. Due to the limited information we have on your project, check out the Technical Data Sheet (TDS). You'll find it on the product page of homedepot.com, under Product Overview- look for Info & Guides and then click on the TDS link. All the best with your project!

5-Gal. Sta-Kool 805 Metal-X Metal Roof Coating is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performs well so far... This coating was pretty easy to apply on an old metal roof and has held up well during the first few months of fall and winter. It seems to be a good idea to pay close attention to the manufacturer's recommendations as to appropriate weather conditions and application methods. I applied it to a decades-old tin roof (about 200 square feet, over a garage), which had previously been covered with a black asphalt-based coating. The white elastomeric coating has provided full coverage, but it required two applications (just as the manufacturer had recommended). Because of fall weather conditions, the coating was applied at slightly cooler temperatures than recommended; and unfortunately there was an unpredicted rain shower less than 48 hours after the first application. The result was that the coating took slightly longer to dry, particularly in spots and along seams where the coating had been thickly applied; and several very small sections were washed out by the unexpected rain. Nevertheless, the second coating took care of all of the problems. Patches that were initially applied with water-based products have held up well too, after the coating was put down. The bright white color looks a lot better than the old black, asphalt-based coating. Because it's water-based, clean-up was pretty easy. It should do a good job of reflecting sunlight from the old roof. So far, it's been holding up well and providing a good seal. Of course, time will tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great results The metal roof of our sunroom was quite rusty. The product overview stated Metal X contained rust inhibitors. From the advice of the staff at our local St Petersburg Home Depot, we ordered the product. The metal roof was cleaned and treated with Prep and Etch. We followed the application instructions and 2 coats of Metal X was painted on with a paint roller and brush. It looks great. The results were to our satisfaction and more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Noticeable difference in temperature We had a "budget" metal shed that we waited a bit long to assemble, so by the time we did it had quite a bit of metal rust showing. We bought STA-KOOL 805 METAL-X METAL ROOF COATING to seal up the metal to prevent further rust and also seal the joints from moisture. We live on a hill with almost no trees in Texas heat. When the coating was complete on the roof and sides, it went from a virtual oven inside to a shed you could actually work in with just a box fan.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works! We painted a leaking metal roof on an old mobile home. We pressured wash the roof first. We applied the sealing compound where necessary then painted the whole roof. It rained a week or so later and the leak was gone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good product and easy to use good product and worked as advertised. Easy to apply and resulted in good coverage. Definitely needed 2 coats as recommended. Only negative is that it is only available in 5 gallon cans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised I used this product on the roof of a 45' steel shipping container, and immediately noticed a reduction in interior temps. I will probably buy more to paint the sides of the container. Two coats are recommended for best results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A product that really works This coating is awesome. At an outside temperature of 93 in August I used my infrared thermometer & the underside of my metal back porch roof at 3 P.M was 148 After applying 2 coats of 805 at the same time & temperature the reading was an unbelievable 98 degrees.
