Roof Restoration (Painting) V’s Roof Replacement

Roof painting is a prevalent choice in Melbourne and throughout Australia. This can improve the look of your old roof tiles and possibly add value to your home. The downside is that generally roof coating is easy to spot, looking a little unnatural, and most people realize the old brittle tiles remain underneath.

The roof painting will need to be re-done every few years. Several thousand dollars every few years quickly adds up, and the real cost of roof painting or roof restoration needs to be considered.
