Planet perfect painting maintenance and repair
Answer: In most cases
Explanation: Yes, it can be done, but with great prep and a top of the line paint that can withstand temperatures of 150 degrees on a daily basis. There are other trade-off's associated with painting rather than just replacing your shingles though. While shingles can last 20 years or more, your painted shingles will need a repaint every 5 years or so. There is also another fact that you should know. Painting could potentially trap condensation below the outer coating. That winds up becoming a problem, since a wet roof encourages the growth of mold and algae, both of which can eventually damage the surface. Or it may hasten the rotting of the decking below the shingles, which could potentially cause leaks inside your home. Be careful to read the reviews for any coating you apply to your roof. With a these facts, just carefully consider that this is very rarely done and it's going to be difficult to find a painter or roofer experienced in this area, and find another one every 5 years!

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.
