Best Paint For Metal Morton Building


I;ve done many metal buildings with latex dtm. However, I don't feel like it covers very well. What do you guys suggest for paint for roof and walls?

Uniflex on the roof

any acrylic on the siding. I have metal buildings that I painted 10 years ago with A-100 satin that still look good (color white).

Really? A100? I wouldn't think that'd hold up too well. There is some areas on this building where the paint is gone and bare metal showing.

Is the uniflex expensive? Is it a straight paint or a fibered product?

I rarely use A-100 on metal but like I said, any acrylic will work.

Uniflex is around $40 per gallon and you would need some training to get the warranty. Call your SW rep and they will be able to hook you up.
