Warren's Barn and Roof Paints are formulated to protect vertical exterior wood surfaces from the elements. Barn and Roof Paints are ideal for brush, roller, or spray application due to their moderate dry times. They dry overnight and are recommended for application to exterior wood surfaces such as barns, fences and properly primed metal roofs. Barn and Roof Paints are available in a wide range of colors and degrees of gloss, and they provide good durability and protection of the substrate.
