This paint is becoming harder and harder to find. You could once buy it at any hardware store, but no longer. It's become so difficult to find and is still so widely needed in the slate roof restoration trades that we decided to offer it on our online store. However, due to the difficulty of shipping cans of paint by mail order, this paint is sold in carton lots only (4 gallon cans), and shipped direct from the manufacturer via UPS. Shipping cost is *about* $30.00 per 42 pound case, but will vary according to destination. Our price is low enough on this product that it's still a good buy even with shipping costs, and we'll deliver it right to your door!
