Do we need to replace our metal roof? it is around 14 years old and is not painted. We are nervous about the screws that are rusting. Can the screws be replaced and the rust removed or do we need to replace the roof? We would like a blue roof so we would want to paint the old one or get a painted one if it needs to be replaced.

You can coat your roof with a water based Industrial coating that has a rust inhibitor properties that will also seal your metal roof - N Nails stop from rusting further.Choose a coating that is High Impact and Resistant to extreme temperatures.This will prolong life of your roof - google roof coating - Roof-It

A rust inhibiting primer with a high impact roof coating, like polyurea can solve your problems. If installed within the range before full cure, most exterior enamels will cross link with an aromatic polyurea. Versaflex has a system that is spec'd this way.
