Red shingles embossed: The lady makes a statement
|In 2004, this photo captures our work of coating the shinges in traditional green|
Nine years ago in Huntingtown, MD, we coated this embossed tin shingle roof with green acrylic. At the time, the tint choice appeared to be related to “tradition.” As on all green acrylic applications, the roof began to chalk several years ago.
Expecting a request to recoat with the same Restoration Green tint, updated to Wearcoat, (an application that would not chalk)….I was in for a surprise.

As we age, we develop different aspirations. In this case, the owner announced, “I want to make a statement on my street!” She asked for demo cards of several bright red colors.
On a demo card, the Jones Red tint is quite dramatic. Normally, the color might be thought too “loud”.
Her roof is surrounded by framing trees on a large lot. An imposing white siding dominates the structure’s visual impact. The roof frames the structure with the large lot and trees providing a backdrop. The Jones red shingle embossed roof works beautifully.
