Metal roofs are becoming popular for homes across the Kitsap Peninsula, and as they age, you might want to consider painting them. Painting a metal roof is a great way to improve its appearance and durability.

Here's how to paint your metal roof:

  1. Clean the roof: Use a pressure washer or a garden hose to remove any dirt or debris from the roof. Allow it to dry completely.

  2. Repair any damage: If there are any damaged areas, use a metal primer and patch material to repair them.

  3. Apply primer: Apply a metal primer to the entire roof surface using a paint roller or sprayer. Allow it to dry completely.

  4. Apply paint: Choose a high-quality paint that is specifically designed for metal roofs. Apply the paint using a paint roller or sprayer, starting from the top and working your way down. Allow it to dry completely.

  5. Apply a second coat: Once the first coat is dry, apply a second coat of paint to ensure full coverage and durability.
