We have an overhanging tree which sheds very small blossoms periodically throughout the day. Would the tree branches need to be trimmed away from the area first?

The aluminum coating can be used on the metal roof, but NOT the foam roof. Suggest that you consider a white elastomeric coating which can be used both on the metal and the foam.

It will work. Any rust should be wire brushed and then the roof should be cleaned before coating.

I will be using this product on a semi flat roof. I also have an a/c unit enclosed with sheet metal. Would it work to coat the metal housing (not applying it to the cooling fins) in keeping the unit cooler? The metal housing is dark green. The elevation is 4,500 ft. the sun being very strong

Yes, the metal housing can be coated with the elastomeric coating. If there is any rust on the housing it should be metal brushed before coating.

This aluminum coating can be applied over asphalt patches on the roof. If the patch is really tar, it cannot be used. Asphalt and tar are both black, but are very different materials. Tar has a much more aromatic odor than asphalt.

Unfortunately, no roofing product can protect against ponding water without ongoing maintenance. With ponding water, it is necessary to inspect on a periodic basis to determine if these areas need to be re-coated.

Hi Big Bob,

The Silver Dollar aluminum coating is not designed to seal leaks. All leaks should be repaired first, then the coating should be applied over the top.

Thank you.

Silver Dollar 6215-GA Fibered Aluminum Roof Coating is an excellent reflective coating for many roofs. It creates a brilliant silvery aluminum finish and penetrates to refresh asphalt surfaces and create an excellent bond.

For the greatest reflectivity and energy cost savings, a white elastomeric roof coating such as Sta-Kool 7805-GA is an excellent choice Model # SK-7805, Store SKU # 462682.

It is waterbased, with a 2 hour dry time and very low odor.
It reflects more than 90% of sun rays, and protects your roof with additional waterproofing

The Silver Dollar will cover approximately 75 sq ft per gallon, or 350 sq feet per 4.75 g pail. Coverage does depend on how rough or worn the surface is.
