ROOF PAINTING BRISBANE: WHEN SHOULD YOU REPAINT YOUR ROOF?
Roof painting in Brisbane is something that is necessary for you to keep your home looking like new. Although roof painting is not something that needs to be done often, it does need to be done right. Precise Roof Restoration roof painting provides you with quality craftsmanship that you never need to worry about.
You should think about getting your roof painted if you begin to notice that it’s looking aged or worn. In this case, roof painting can take several years off the look of the roof, while also providing extra protection against future wear and tear.
Of course, the other time to have your roof painted is when you have a roof leak or other repair project done to your home. The presence of even one leak is evidence that the roof is beginning to age and is vulnerable. This means it needs professional treatment, and part of reducing the risk of future problems is applying new paint.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PAINTING MY ROOF?
No matter what type of roof you have, painting it will accentuate the beauty of your home. Roofs are constantly taking a beating. Over the course of their lifetime they are subjected to rain, wind, sunshine and more. This exposure to the elements will cause a lot of wear and tear on your roof. Even the best roof will eventually begin to show signs of aging. This can make an otherwise beautiful home look old and less appealing aesthetically.
Of course, the look of a roof is not the only benefit to roof painting. We provide the type of roof painting Brisbane residents need in order to minimize the effects of the constant battering their roofs need to absorb. Roof painting also minimizes the damage caused by algae and other lichens that can grow on it. This increases the lifespan of your roof and reduces the amount you will need to spend on other types of maintenance.
The visual and performance benefits of getting your roof painted in Brisbane also add up to an increased value for your home. A roof that is well taken care of looks great, and provides prospective buyers with peace of mind. In that sense, roof painting allows you to potentially increase the value of your home investment.
WHAT IS ROOF PAINTING?
One of the most important things to realize about roof painting is that it is never done in isolation. All roof painting work must be preceded by a full roof restoration. This means that any quote for roof painting will in fact be a quote for a full restoration + painting. A comprehensive list of the steps we take during a roof restoration can be found here.
When Precise Roof Restoration paints your roof, all of your solar panels, skylines, gables, etc. are masked up to prevent overspray. We cover any adjoining roofs or vehicles with drop sheets, and always consult neighbors if there is a risk of overspray onto their property.
The paint is applied by a top of the line Graco airless sprayer. The primer coat of paint is applied first, and acts as a sealer and undercoat to the rest of the work. After that, two coats of roof membrane are applied.
Finally, areas such as barge caps, lead flashings, and under flyover roofs are painted by hand. This is done in order to keep your home clean by preventing any paint overspray into the house itself.
Roof cleaning is an important part of maintaining a healthy roof and protecting your investment in your home.
