Paint before or after roof install

Does it make a difference if I paint after having a new roof put on?

After install makes sense, but there may be something I am not aware of.

I would paint the house before, so if you get paint on the old roofing material, it would'nt matter becouse you would be tearing the roof of anyway.

definitely paint afterward so any marks caused by roof removal are taken care of,plus if you have fresh paint on the house the granules off the old shingles will tend to stick to the new paint

It is my opinion also that the painting should be done after the roof is replaced. If you paint first - expect to do touch up painting after the roof is done.
