Before roof painting commences, repairs such as waterproofing and rust treatment are attended to. The repair process is followed by a cleaning process, where the roof is cleaned with an ultra high pressure cleaner, or steel brushes, to remove loose paint, dirt and algae, depending on the type of surface.
In order to lengthen the life span of you roof, it is important to attend to problems as they occur, even the smaller issues. If left unattended, the damage to your roof is likely to worsen and this will result in an even greater expense. Such problems that might occur and seem to be minor issues include cracks in the tiles, mislaid shingles and leaking roofs. If these are overlooked, you may end up having to replace the entire roof. Therefore, regular care and maintenance carried out on your roof by a roofing contractor will ensure a longer life and lower costs in the long run.

A good looking roof is one of the most important aspects of your house. It takes up a large proportion of the exterior and, therefore, plays a crucial role in terms of the appearance of your home. Painting maintains the aesthetic value of your house, business premises and other commercial properties.
Increase the Value of your Property
It has been found to increase the value of a property due to the attractiveness created. The first thing anyone sees when they enter a property is the roof of a house and why not bolster and protect your investment.
Painting your roof with the help of actual professionals from a roofing company helps to increase the lifespan of the roofing and make the structure firmer. Poor quality or deteriorated roofing materials can also lead to leaks, compromising the entire structure of your house. After the job’s completion you will have a beautiful investment with added durability and colour, that will look great and protect your home from the elements for many years.
A roof that is well painted prevents the growth of Algae and Lichens. No untoward plant growths can be sustained on such a roof which means leaks and damage are avoided. This saves costs in repairs and in cases of widespread growth, wholesale roof replacement.
Save Money on Electricity
By getting your roof painted, you’ll reduce its surface temperature by approximately 10 °C, which will in turn reduce the temperature of the interior of your home by up to 8°C. With a cooler home, you’ll use the air-conditioner less, saving a substantial amount on electricity.
Roof painting seems only but a simple thing that we really do not give much attention to. Here at a Cape Painters we value roof painting because of the many advantages that this simple service brings.
Roof painting is in four steps. First, roof cleaning is done followed by the application of an anti-fungal solution. Thirdly, a sealer or a primer is applied depending on the texture of the tiles. Lastly a base coat is applied and then a top coat to give it a final finish.
There is no such thing as too much preparation. It starts with using a high pressure washer to the existing surface to remove all dirt and grime, and any loose or flaking paint. This is followed by hand scraping, where required, to remove any further loose or flaking paint that has not being removed by the water blasting.
Leak detection, removing and treating rust, and waterproofing are crucial steps in preparation.
All gutters are cleared of debris and down pipes checked to see if they are running freely. A visual inspection of the tiles will show any cracked or broken tiles, which should be replaced. Roof valleys are checked and cleaned to ensure free flow of the rainwater. The ridge tiles are inspected for displacement or cracking. Waterproofing flashing, parapet walls, roofing joints, laps and roof screws on corrugated roofs.
Surfaces must be clean, firm (sound) and thoroughly dry before painting. The process includes waterproofing redoing Roofs must be durable and must not allow the penetration of rainwater or any other surface water to its interior.
Deciding on Heat Reflection
Using heat reflective painting for your roof has such a great impact you would not believe it. A heat reflective paint is the best alternative to insulate your roof during the summer season. Research shows that on a typical hot day, a black roof can heat up to ninety degrees making the temperature inside your house more than thirty five degrees. Using a reflective paint, this will be nothing to worry about. The roof reflects up to ninety percent of the rays away, reducing the temperature by a significant twenty percent. This not only makes your home cooler during summer but looking at it critically, this will reduce the need of an air conditioner or a fan hence reducing your bills as well as your carbon footprint significantly.
Choosing the ideal roof paint
You have to ensure that you get the right roof paint that both caters to your particular needs as well as offers an aesthetically pleasing view from the street or your garden.
Selecting the right colour. As you would expect, choosing the wrong colour is often only apparent after the roof paint has been applied. We therefore take some time to plan ahead and choose the colour that suits your architectural design, wall colour and also represents you best. Other ways to ensure you’re choosing the right colour is by painting small samples and testing out how the colour looks.
So, depending on where you live and what you need from your roof paint, choose the right coating to achieve the best results the first time. The roof of your home should not only be aesthetically appealing. It also needs to protect against the elements of the Cape Town climate, from long hot summer days to wet and freezing cold winter nights. It has to be done right or you’ll have to do it again in a few short years. Fortunately we are also here to help you in every step of the process.
