There is an old barn by me and on the roof it is spelled out 1885 in red the rest is gray and it must be slate. I assume it is original ? and it still looks good too.

I also see many many houses going with the steel roofs. Not exactly sure why ? If it is cost or the fact shingles don't seem to be made good anymore ? Is it standing seam the metal ones with no exposed screw/nails ? This would surly be better. Our pole barns all over time had issues with a leaky nail here or there. My house shingles are looking pretty bad. I'm very interested in all your reply's. Now if I only had some extra money to do something about it. I may end up with some buckets of tar and over coat it and try and get by ? But then will it help or make it worse ? Future tear off I'd think will be worse.

Mike M:

Try Elastomeric Mobile Home roof coating instead of tar. Get the White, then you can add whatever color pigment you need to have it match your house. The Elastomeric coating when it is dry, completely seals the roof. It's like putting a large sheet of rubber on your roof & you don't have to nail or screw it down.

Thanks for the tip. I will have to look into that. White would be fine as my old shingles were kinda that color and the house is fade light blue vynil siding. Sounds like I could maybe even do it in stages and not try and get it all in one day ?
