Why you need roof restoration and painting
There are plenty of reasons why you might need roof restoration.

Adding an extension
If you’re adding an extension to the property and need to colour match paint or you’re undertaking repairs and need to coat new roofing materials undertaking a roof painting project is a simple way to streamline the entire look of your property without it looking patchy.
Adding extensions and extra space is fantastic for resale value, however, to ensure a completed look roof painting will tie in all the visual elements of your home and ensure you create a look that runs throughout your home.
If you have undergone a major roof renovation, whatever the reason roof paint will improve the overall look of your property and is considerably cheaper than removing and adding a new roof. While you might have a range of different roof materials, tying it all together with the same roof paint can work to weave the exterior of your home together so it compliments the colours of the rest of your home or at least looks similar enough upon close inspection.
Types of roofs that can be restored & painted
No matter what reason you have for painting your roof, it’s possible to paint a broad range of roofing materials quite easily.
If you’re an Adelaide home owner and you are thinking about getting your roof painted there are plenty of options. All types of roof materials can be painted so if you are considering an affordable upgrade for your roof a repaint could be just the thing for your home to add extra value to your property.
Types of roofs that can be painted include:
This style of roofs can be painted easily. If you want your Colorbond roof to match the rest of your property or if you have different roof colours on your home, painting your Colorbond roof is simple and effective.
Colorbond is by far one of the most popular roof choices in Australia and painting a Colorbond roof is a quick way to get a refreshed look for the exterior of your home.
Rusty metal roofs
If you have an old roof that is full of rust and made from metal you can paint it for a quick fix if the roof is water tight, this is a great option if you are listing the property for sale and you want to ensure your roof is looking in tip top shape.
It’s important to note that painting a metal roof is only a temporary fix and you should consider replacing the entire roof as soon as it is possible as a rusted roof can only be patched up and eventually over time the metal or material will need to be replaced.
Unsealed terracotta tiles
Tiles can provide a dated look to your home and if you want to modernise the look of the exterior roof area, updating the colour of your unsealed roof tiles can provide the modern look you are hoping to achieve.
Be aware that terracotta tiles that are glazed should not be painted and you should speak with your roofing expert to discuss if the painting will work on your specific tile to ensure you are spending your money on a service that is likely to last.
If painting the tiles is simply a short-term solution you should be aware of the lifespan of the paint job to ensure you are getting value for money.
Concrete tiles can be painted to add a clean and fresh look to the roof, the same can be said though about sealed tiles whether they are made from concrete or terracotta, be aware that anyone suggesting they can paint sealed tiles should be avoided due to the fact that the paint won’t last and the job won’t be of a high quality.

Roof painting to an untrained eye might look like a simple process however it is essential to have a roof inspection to ensure any cracks, leaks or issues are detected ahead of any painting taking place.
Roof repairs (if required)
If roof repairs are required, this is the time they would be undertaken to ensure all of the cracks, leaks and any replacements are carried out before the roof painting takes place.
In this step, the roof is cleaned and any algae, dirt or mould is removed so the surface is clear and ready for painting. Your roofing professional should take plenty of time and also photos to show you the before and after in this process.
Roof paint and seal
At this point, it is time to paint your roof using your freshly chosen colour. The paint is applied with a spray gun and your roofing expert will work to cover the entire roof span. You might also wish to consider upgrading your guttering to match the chosen colour of your new roof.
