    It shouldn't be oxidation or from any lead; it was all removed.

    This is the third time it was totally repainted, the last time (when the spot appeared) in 2015. It is base/clear. I have a quart of the paint we used available for a respray.

    I think the discoloration was due to poor preparation of this section of the roof.

    That’s great news. You are in much better shape for a repair then. The method I posted will work for such repair. Any good restoration shop should be able to do this. There are a lot of good painters in Florida. I would ask around and pick someone with lots of blending experience. That will be a pretty easy job since it’s pretty new base/clear and you have the white paint. That repair will require less than half a pint of white. The clear and the labor is what will be the main expense. You should be able to get the repair to look new again like you saw in my pictures.
