Paint Asphalt Shingles ??

can it be done? Is it done? I have an older part of the house that has a perfectly good asphalt shingle roof that is white. The new part of the house has black shingles. A contractor friend suggested I look into painting the shingles black rather than strip off the previous two layers of white shingles and putting on new black ones.
Is this done, and if so, how and with what type of product?

also, altough I know it's code, it rankles me to tear up a perfectly good roog, probably only 7 years old, to put on new black shingles. any great harm in putting on a third layer?

thanks for your comments.

Never heard of anyone painting a roof although I suppose it could be done.
As for putting on a 3 rd layer, If you feel your roof can hold the weight it would be alright, you may have to go against local codes.Some cities still allow 3rd layers.
