Cutting the Glare On A Metal Roof


I will be building a modified A-Frame structure that will have a basic (Menards) pole barn type screw down metal roof. It will be in a full sun location . Since there will be such a large expanse of this stuff, is there any way I can permanently reduce the reflectivity without compromising the factory finish?

pick a non glare finish.
if your area is hot pick a very light white or off white color, so you dont bake yourself and the building.
A frames look attractive but arent very practical, little headroom on tiny second floor.
why did you pick this design?

Ease of construction, no interior bearing walls, large expanses of glass for solar gain and quality sight lines.
This will be our retirement cabin in rural west central Wisconsin. I am not married to the idea though. We still have a year to decide on the final design.
Thanks for your interest.
