Did you like elastomeric paint?

There are several great threads here about elastomeric paint. The reflective properties have been well documented, and it seems to be a popular choice for roofs.

But one thing I haven't found conclusive reports on is the long-term durability of the paint.

I see lots of people choosing to paint with it. I see some people saying that they would choose regular white paint because elastomeric paint will fade/turn yellow and/or pickup dirt and debris.

I haven't seen anyone posting details of their long-term experience and why they did or didn't like it.

If you have used it for anything, please share your opinions of it after seeing it in use over time.

I will be interested in responses as well. I even considered having the roof painted with white colored linex (bed liner). That way its not so slippery when you are walking on the roof.
