I bought it at a discount warehouse that gets large shipments of material from drug seizures. There isn’t nearly as great a difference in those types of fabrics as there use to be anyway. Technology kind of moved on. I’d probably classify it as a velour as this typically has a bit of stretch to it and is used for upholstery. I know a lot of the materials this place has are upholstery materials.

I was wondering is that velvet? Looks like it is and I think you mentioned it. But is it true velvet or is it Velveteen; a sort of cheaper velvet looking material.

At this point, I’ve contacted multiple suppliers and gotten zero good information. None of them are willing to spec a coating system for this. They all seem to think there is going to be some major issue with it, but no one is willing to tell me exactly why. I can only assume the existing coating is known to be difficult to recoat and the manufacturers are shying from it to avoid liability. Sorry I couldn’t be more help on this one. I’ve contacted Davis Frost, Sherwin Williams, Devoe, and PPG with no luck. There may be other more specialized brands available in your area that would be worth checking into.

A good DTM would be the best choice.

I have 100 year old row house in Washington DC. I was trying to learn what coating to use on the 20 year old flat seam metal roof of my front porch. When that replacement roof was new it had an oil paint on it and instinctively painted it 10 years ago with oil but did no research on prep. I will soon paint it again with oil based paint and good preparation per your piece…..and I will have much more than “instinct” to guide me. The in-depth information you provide gives me confidence that I am spending my time and money well as I ready this good house for its next 100 years and owners who recognize good stewardship of this property.

Thanks

This is a tricky situation. My supplier has run into this coating before and most products seem to have issues bonding to it due to the stainless steel fleck. I’ve got my manufacturer checking with their technical department to see if there is a product recommendation for anything in their line. I’ll get back to you as soon as I get a solid answer.

We’ve painted it twice since the original coat. The last time we painted was in 2008 and our powerwashing basically took off all the original Calbar paint. We coated it with Follansbee’s Rapid-Dri primer followed by 3 coats of their Rapid-Dri stainless steel fleck top coat. It’s time for us to paint the roof again (it’s been 8 years), however, to my dismay, Follansbee is out of business, and I can’t get their paint. We don’t have much peeling. Just a couple of places. What brand of paint would you recommend? We had really good luck with the Follansbee paint, and would like something that works as well.
