A well-maintained roof is a reflection of a safe, protected home. A neglected roof, on the other hand, is not just an unsightly feature but also a sign that you may have trouble in your home in the future, if not already. It is also a sign that you need to prepare yourself for added expenses in house maintenance.
Roof Painting – An Overview
Roof painting can best be explained as a liquid coating given to roofs. This fluid acts as a membranous coat which offers the roof added protection and safety, and also gives it a new lease of life. Roof paint serves in two most significant ways – it is an important step in the maintenance of exteriors and interiors, and also adds aesthetic value to the structure.
Cost To Paint A Roof
Roof painting cost varies from state to state. Roof painters usually want to inspect a property before they give a final quote. They’ll want to look at the condition of the roof and the steepness of the pitch before they give a square metre rate or hourly rate, and this can vary depending on the job.
The price difference between a high quality paint and other paints can be high, but it’s better to use a paint the roofing painter recommends. Using a cheaper paint could mean you have to repaint your roof sooner, which will end up costing more.
Recoating the roof is an ideal way to restore your roof’s stunning appearance, maintain its water proofing and effectiveness, and prevent roof degradation. And an airless spray gun is the perfect tool for roof painting projects of any type or size.
Airless spray guns work beautifully with all roof type claddings including:
Many common roof coatings are quite heavy with a high viscosity and require a high pressure for correct application.

White Roof On House
A white roof can make a huge difference in your home temperature, energy savings, and the longevity of your roof.
Think about it: in summer we tend to wear light-colored clothes – as opposed to dark ones – because they reflect heat and keep us from getting too hot. White roofs have a similar effect, benefiting both us and the environment.
A white roof can emit up to 90% of absorbed heat, maintaining a stable, cooler temperature inside your house. This increases energy efficiency, reduces utility bills, and extends the life of your roof.
