Elastomeric paint

Is the rustolium paint the best bang for the buck? Also how many coats and gallons were necessary for the job? I think i want to deal with the roof and windows before winter hits..and god do i hate winter.

I don't use any elastomeric paints. Rusto is $25 a gallon and enamel hardener is around $10 or so. IMO that's the best bang for the buck.
A buddy did his 35 foot RE with 5 gallons total. I think he had a bit leftover, but I can't recall.

I don't think you get the same benefits with paint as you do with an elastomeric product made specifically for cooling and sealing roofs.

Thats the stuff im asking about..is one brand better than others? Affordable ones will run $20-$50..3 gallons should be good for 2 or 3 coats.

I'm using Henry's, it seems to have good reviews. I paid $227 for a 5 gallon and think this is money well spent for the dual purpose benefits. Plus it came in the color I wanted, which was not white.
