Roof Painting

House after wall and roof painting

Roof painting can make your roof look brand new again at a fraction of the cost of getting a new roof. Whether you have a tile or metal roof, you can paint it, and the results are brilliant!

Rather than completely replacing your roof with a new roof, why not do some roof repairs and let our professional roof painters make it as good as new. In fact, a coat of paint helps protect your roof and extend its life. And if you want, you can even change the colour of your roof!

The roof is the most prominent part of your house and affects its overall impression. Having a great-looking roof after some painting will also lift the appearance of the entire house, much to the envy of your neighbours ;P

If your roof looks old, but is still solid and sealed, stop before you get a new one and consider roof painting!

What’s special about roof painting?

Unlike internal walls, your roof is exposed to the elements all day and all night. This means it must be painted professionally and with good materials.

The roof is also high and hard to reach, and you can’t just go up a ladder as you paint it. And you definitely don’t want to step in the wrong spot and break your way into the property from the top. Therefore, special equipment and experience is required to do a good job, and safety is a priority.

Finally, the roof must be cleaned and prepared better than any wall before painting is possible. Otherwise, the pain will just peel off after it’s dry, and you’re back to Square One. So an experienced roof painter is needed to do a good job.

How do we paint your roof?

Step 1: Preparation.  We make sure the job can be done safely. This protects us from falls, is required by WorkSafe, and ensures the job runs smoothly.

Step 2: Inspection & Repairs. We then inspect the roof to check its condition and fix as required. This includes replacing damaged tiles or sheets, damaged flashing, rusty roof screws or anything else that needs to be repaired.

Step 3: Pressure cleaning. We use a pressure cleaning machine to clean the roof.

Step 4: Marking and taping. We tape and cover all parts of the roof and surrounding areas that shouldn’t to be painted.

Step 5: Primer. This is crucial for a good result, and needs to be done in good weather conditions.

Step 6: Final spray. The last step is spraying your choice of paint onto the roof to make it look great.

How much does a roof painting cost?

As you probably understand, every roof is different, so the work varies greatly. Instead of guessing, filling out forms and struggling with new terminology, we can take a look at your roof,  give you a quote and guide you through deciding what to do.
