I found a great deal on the r-panel metal roofing off of craigsist. The non-colored stuff is 1.50 per linear ft, while a forest green is 1.75 per linear ft. I live here in Texas, where, of course, the summers get pretty smoking hot. The coop and run will be located partially in the woods, where there are some young trees providing some dappled shade. the coop is oriented facing east to west, with the morning sun shining onto the front of the coop. Does anyone have experience with elastomeric paint on the r-panels or any metal roof? Is it worth it (the cooling properties of the paint)? I was hoping to take the paint into a home depot or lowes so that it can be tinted to a nice green (coop will be barn red with the white trim look) If the paint isn't worth it, i was going to buy the forest green r-panel, otherwise I'd get the bare stuff and pay to paint it.
