Dicor Fiberglass Roof Coating

Anyone have experience and feedback on the long term durability on Dicor's Fiberglass Roof Coating?

I found some older threads on installation and initial feedback sounded good but not sure how it may be holding up over the years\months.

Thanks,

I put two coats of the Dicor fiberglass roof paint on mine last spring and so far it is doing fine. Washed up bright as new too.

Thanks Gary
I am still working on stripping whatever is on my roof now. Did a small section with MEK and the roof looked really nice in that area. Testing ZEP stripper now to see if it gets it looking the same.

On mine the previous (factory) paint was just chalking continuously, but the paint itself was firmly adhered. I just washed it well using a brush, detergent and bleach, then applied "liquid sandpaper" to degloss and soften the surface. Then painted two coats of the Dicor.
