Metal Roofing: Cool Tin Roof

Reviewed by:
Rosemary Thornton
Terne roofs are historically appropriate, aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting, but they do require regular maintenance and painting.

The KlassicKolors Prepainted Terne Roof solves the maintenance issue. This roofing material is made with Terne II, which is a zinc and tin alloy. The factory-applied coating is offered in 20 stock colors and comes with a 30-year finish warranty.

No cats will complain about your hot tin roof because solar reflective pigments are used in the paint (which also reduces energy costs).
