Roof Restoration (Painting) V’s Roof Replacement

Roof painting is an extremely popular 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.

Can Roof Painting Stand up to Australia’s Harsh Climate

The roof is a harsh and fully exposed part of your home. The paint is subject to extreme winds, blistering heat and harsh fading UV rays not to mention acid rain and large hail storms. It is a big ask for a paint to stand up to these punishing elements, year upon year. The roof coating on a metal roof is baked on at the factory not just applied with a spray gun.
