Painting a Tin Roof.

Manufacturer and Builder 2, 1890

The following is recommended as an excellent paint for tin roofs: Ten pounds of Venetian red, one pound of red lead, and one gallon of pure linseed oil. The roof will last longer, and be less liable to rust, if painted on the under surface before laying. It is a good plan to put one or two layers of felt paper under the tin to serve as s cushion, and to deaden the noise made by the rain falling on the tin. A year after the first costing, the roof should be painted again, and then a good roof will only require painting once in four years. A roof of first-class material, well soldered and properly laid, should last forty years.
