What type of roller do you use?


The roller paint guys reccomend the foam brushes and foam roller covers. I used the foam brushes (no brush marks!) and a regular 3/8 nap roller cover. During the first coat it is important to let the roller soak up some paint and "steep" for a while, I got lots of air bubbles on the roof (they dried out fine....) on the first coat, but once the roller was saturated, it went much better. Roll it on as thin as you can to get coverage, then come back and add multiple coats to get the finish desired. 3 coats was enough for me, some people go 5 or 6 if wetsanding between coats.
