I have an old house built in 1914 with the original standing seam metal roof. The roof has been coated over the years with a reflective metal coating. However the multiple layers of coatings is cracking and requires constant maintenance. I have been told that the original metal-lead coated roof should be preserved since it appears to be in pretty good shape. I'm afraid that the water is getting in the cracks and being trapped between this coating and the roof and may cause big problems later. What do you recommend as a roof replacement? I would prefer a highly reflective roof to reduce heat in the summer. Is there a roof that can be applied over the old roof?

I forgot to mention that the slope of the roof is 1/6 and that the height & spacing of the existing raised metal seam roof is 3/4" at 11" centers

There are various elastomeric coatings available but the problem is that, if the current coatings are not adhering well, they must be removed in order for a new coating to adhere. You can do a google search for "metal roof restoration"
