Screwed on new corner bead


Had my roof replaced a few weeks ago and they used a dark brown metal nosing on all the edges. I painted it using an exterior semi gloss latex paint. The brown is showing through the paint after two full coats. Any thoughts on how I could fix this would be much appreciated. Thanks

Don't know why you would want to paint new drip edge.It is anodized aluminum and hold up for years.

Yes, rather odd to paint it white as it will show all the dirt from water running off the roof.
White paint with today's formulas doesn't cover well at all. It's not unusual for you to need 3 or 4 coats to cover, especially a dark color. You're just going to have to bite the bullet and apply another coat or two.

I always get my white paints tinted white, which seems to help with the coverage of white paint.
