Scott's Painting
Answer: In some cases
Explanation: If you want to paint your shingles, don’t think you can just drag out a can of exterior paint and call it a day. Specialized roof paints, like Behr’s Multi-Surface acrylic latex, are formulated to survive the challenges inherent to roof surfaces. Specifically, they purport to resist mildew and algae and stand up to the high heat found on rooftops. Roof surface temperatures regularly reach up to 150 degrees Fahrenheit, so the paint needs to be extra durable in order to stop it from cracking and chipping. Roof paints also adhere properly to asphalt, wood shakes, tile, and other roofing materials. As with any project, it pays not to go with a bargain brand—cheaper coatings may cause problems with your roof down the line.
