Question
Hi Brian,  I have garage with a flat roof that i can see the top of from my second story home.  It is just plain ugly and in disrepair, and what I want to do is paint a mural on it.  

It looks like it currently has roll roofing, that looks like it needs to be replaced. Once that is done, what product would you recommend I paint on top of it to create the base for my mural?  Also, what kind of paint should I use for my mural?  

Thanks for your help!
Lulu

Answer
Good morning Lulu,

They do have some roof paint at the big box stores (Home Dept or Lowe's) they will work just fine.  You will need to ask the guys at the front desk to tint the paint.  

They do sell paint tint.  You can get it in a few colors but not a lot.  

You can use the roof paint or "coating" for you base then you can paint over it with whatever paint you wish.

Expertise

I can answer any questions related to all type of roof repairs (especially tile roof repair and flat roof repair work). I can also answer most new roof or roofing related questions with the exception of questions in regards to single ply roofing (PVC) and standing seam or metal panel roofing. I have little or no experience with those applications.

Experience

I was first introduced to roofing by my father who was started his own roofing career in Orange County CA. By the time I was 10 years old I knew what most general roofing materials were and had some idea of their purpose. At the age of thirteen I started working during the summers doing roofing. After graduating from High School I began working full time as a journeyman roofer doing roof repair work and complete new roofs. My area of specialty and interests has always been on the roof repair side of the business. In 1997 I took the CSLB testing and qualified for a license on my own and moved my roofing business location to Lake Forest, CA 92630. Currently I operate South County Roofing company serving the following areas of Orange County Anaheim, Anaheim Hills, Aliso Viejo, Buena Park, Brea, Cypress, Capistrano Beach, Costa Mesa, Corona Del Mar, Dana Point, Fountain Valley, Fullerton, Foothill Ranch, Garden Grove, Huntington Beach, Irvine, Laguna Niguel, Laguna Hills, Ladera Ranch, Laguna Beach, Lake Forest, Mission Viejo, Orange, Newport Beach, Newport Coast, Placentia, Rancho Santa Margarita, San Clemente, Seal Beach, Silverado Canyon, San Juan Capistrano, Santa Ana, Tustin, Trabuco Canyon, Villa Park, Westminster, Yorba Linda.
