Did you read the specs for that stuff?? Applying over asphalt shingles, 4 coats required at 50 sqft per gallon! Assuming your average 2000 sq foot house has at least 2500 sq feet of roof, you'd need at least 200 gallons to cover the roof. I don't know what Home Depot sells that stuff for, but I'd bet it's far less expensive and more reliable to just reroof with a lighter share of shingle.

In my case, I have 1400 sq. ft of living area . I think initially, it would take alot to cover the roof but repeat coats in the future should be far less cause the pores of the shingles would have been filled . I like the idea of the highly reflective pure white elastomeric paint to reduce the temperature of the roof deck, attic, and hence interior.

I bet it is a lot cheaper in bulk. Bulk as in drums, not 5g pails. Something like that, before I pulled the trigger, I'd at least call the local commercial roofing houses, and see what they would charge, assuming they will even stoop to residential work. IIRC, commonly used to stretch the life of membrane flat roofs. On a shingle roof, I imagine it would make stripping the roof a living bitch when the time comes.
Like the other guy said, I'd also price out a conventional tearoff and replace with 30 year shingles in a light color. If the locals would not call you a freak, I'd also price a metal roof- those can be had in white or off-white.

I used Henry Solarflex 287 SF roof paint (also sold at HD) to paint my 400 sq ft sunroom's black shingles white. It's been a few years now and it is still white. http://www.henry.com/fileadmin/pdf/current/tds/HE287SF_techdata.pdf
