Re: Replicating old tin roofing

Hi Horsevet, Who did you use for the standing seam roof and what part of PA are you in? I'm doing a new asphalt shingle roof on the house now, but would like standing seam metal for the garage & porch. It would be great to find someone who does it the traditional way. Probably a project for next yea...

Certainteed Grand Manor and/or Carriage House shingles?

It looks like the roof on our 1890's Victorian is shot and we need to replace it this summer. It will be a complete tear off (already have 2 layers of old asphalt shingles up there). Although the existing 1" sheathing looks good with only small gaps between the boards, we will probably do new plywoo...

sticky paint and caulk solution

The SW guy got back to me late Friday and told me it was "working as designed." He said that it is supposed to stay sticky and this just shows that the caulk is "working" and staying flexible. BOGUS! This sounds like a lame excuse to me. Meanwhile, I was talking to a friend whose father is a contrac...

The SW field rep was here and he is stumped. He will make some calls tomorrow to the home office and try to figure out what is happening. He didn't take any samples of the paint, just wrote down the batch number from the can.

Ok, after drying for 24 hrs, both the SW Super Paint Satin and the old can of Ben Moore latex paint are NOT sticky when applied over any of the caulks, including the DAP Dynaflex 230 and all of the SW caulks. They feel a tad bit rubbery, but are not sticky. The Zinsser 123 latex primer is not sticky...

poplancaster- I had no problems with DAP 230 when I was using SW oil paint. I can't get oil paint anymore, so it is the SW latex that is giving me so much grief. You gave me a good idea though - I wonder if I got a bad can of paint? I tried a few things tonight. I painted a small area with a differe...

Thanks everyone for responding! Raisinette- I checked out the other post. Lots of really good info. I think I've got the process down, but I'm just having a compatability problem with the caulk and paint. Jim K - I live in West Pittston, half way between Wilkes Barre and Scranton - just outside the ...
