Tiled Roof Painting
Tiled roof painting, otherwise known as a roof restoration, is the fastest most economical way to lift the look of the exterior of your home while adding tens of thousands of dollars of value. When renovating the exterior of your house it is always best to work from the top down, meaning start with your roof before doing any exterior painting if possible. Although our team always wash down the exterior after cleaning your roof, this will ensure your fresh paint looks its best.

There are two main reasons people decide to paint their tiled roofs.Firstly, cosmetic reasons are often a reason people decide to paint their roof. They are renovating their home, or painting the exterior and would like to update and refresh the colour of their tiled roof. Often we find our customers feel like their entire home looks new again after painting their roof.
Secondly, the coating on the tile has worn down over many years and the tiles have become bare, which over time will result in brittle tiles that easily crack. If without a protective coating, a tile roof will eventually need replacement – which you are looking at upwards of any eye watering $20,000+ to do so.
