Need help selecting roof paint color
deb22March 6, 2013
Gambrel roof made of tin scalloped tiles need paint. Would like to make it look like aged copper (verdigris patina) or something other than black, red, or farm barn green. Silver?
Photo shows peeling part of dormer portion of gambrel---the white "apron" below is also part of the roof.
Many thanks for suggestions.

That looks awesome! Thank you. Since the tin roof is in great shape, painting makes financial sense Getting the color right is the problem
