    We all want our houses to look stylish and well maintained, but we often forget one feature when we are thinking of maintenance and decorating, the roof. Not only does your roof keep your home watertight, it is a massive surface area that influences the entire aesthetic look of your home. First impressions count and your roof is most often the first thing people notice when visiting your home, so it would be wise not to neglect it and keep it well maintained at all times. South African weather is dynamic, ranging from hot and wet summers, to cold and dry winters. This extreme weather has a big impact on your roof!

    In order to maintain your roof, experts agree that a roof should be repainted at least every 5 years. This not only ensures your roof always appears in a pristine condition, it allows one to address any minor problems such as leaks and rust before they may become larger ones.

    Painting Contractors Somerset West Roof Painting – Suggestions for Roof Maintenance

    PREPARATION – Roof

    Preparing the surface of your roof before painting is imperative. It is probably the most tedious task, but the results will be well worth the effort. Remove all dust and dirt from the surface and sand away any flaky or loose pieces of old roof paint with a sander. Using a high pressure water blaster is one of the best ways to clean a roof, especially any roof with a rough surface. Painting a roof can vary slightly depending on what material your roof is made of but there is one thing they all have in common and that is they must be cleaned before you apply any paint.

    Prevention – Roof Repair

    Prevention is better than cure. That is why inspecting and keeping your roof in a good condition can make a world of difference to a big roof repair bill somewhere down the line. When inspecting the exterior part of your home roof, make sure to check for damaged or missing roof tiles, curling, blistering paint or sealant as well as moss or algae growth.

    Priming the Roof

    With unpainted roofs you will need to prime it first with a suitable primer, this is also the case for any sheets of iron that may have been replaced on an existing roof.

    Roof Paint

    It is important to get the right roof paint for the surface of your roof. Most paints specifically designed for rooftops can be applied to a number of surfaces such as cement, concrete tiles and IBR roofing. Acrylic paint is generally the preferred variety of paint one should use to paint a roof. Acrylic roof paint is a water based paint. A Roof Acrylic that is UV resistant and 100% Acrylic is always the best choice for your roof, no matter if it is metal or tiles! Roof painting meets a range of functional goals and provides maximum protection like UV protection and sun reflection as well as waterproofing and insulation.

    What Colour Do You Like Your Roof?

    South African Sun is hard on the roof tops of most South African Homes. It needs to cope with some heavy sun rays and then there is the issue of the material the roof is constructed from.

    There are a number of options when choosing the correct roof paint and colour to paint your roof with. The final choice of colour and quality of paint is obviously up to you and depends on the budget that you have set aside and need to keep to.

    The best time of the year to repaint your roof will obviously be in the months with the least annual rainfall. Choose a day or two where no rain is expected. This will give you enough time to prepare the surface appropriately and allow the roof paint to dry properly between coats.
