    Thanks,

    My roof is pigmented white, it's not painted as such... hence the satin appearance. The Cornaline has surprised me a bit... it changes a lot depending on the light, I like it a lot.

    Have be a look at this thread I posted a while back when I polished the roof... made quite a difference. You can see the chalky look of the weathered roof on the left.

    I have nuancierds.fr bookmarked and I've been chewing over colours for years, virtually settled on Bordeaux and I was going to have a black roof, however…
