Ahhhh I just said "durable", didn't mean to demean metal roofs! The panels say AKZO on the white underside and I think he put that roof on in '92. Minor rust showing. He wanted me to paint that barn roof for the last few years. It could be done, but when you paint a barn roof like that, then you are inviting more maintenance. I think the panels are factory painted with a product called Valspar, maybe baked on enamel. All in all, not bad, green paint is faded if you look close. I went to a couple local big roofing suppliers yesterday, one guy couldn't be bothered with a short order, the other guy can get panels in a week; saw a sample that is similar but less sharp lines. That's good, always heard paint fails on sharp lines first and that's how this stuff is wearing.
He found a place in Ephrata, PA, ABM ,that can deliver. This guy could pinch a penny and get two dimes out of it, trying to avoid a delivery charge
This guy is an old timer and VIP in this town, farmer family that owned huge parcels of land here over the years. You won't meet harder working people though. He keeps everything in order that's for sure. The guy is 72 and still does landscaping around town.
Today we're going to put a better tarp over the end. He put that one on himself by rolling the tarp up over a piece of 2" pvc pipe. Carried it up to the ridge, placed it, and just let it roll down! The roof frame is the kind of firring strips that used to hold cedar shingles.
Anybody knows of a favorite brand name LMK.
