Roof Painting vs Roof Restoration

Roof Painting

Roof painting is cleaning the roof, changing tiles, pointing caps and painting 3 coats, the roof can technically still leak due to other issues not seen from the top side of the roof.

Roof Restoration

Roof restoration is the next level of roof painting. The difference is restoration is taking the roof back to truss, remove battens, install sarking, put the roof back on replacing broken tiles, then painting it.

A bit like repainting a car, mask it up and paint it, or restoring it, remove every panel, glass, nut and bolt, and rebuild it.

Roof Painting Process

Roof painting is a process of high-pressure water blasting the tiles, replacing broken roof tiles, repointing cracked mortar and applying 1 coat of Dulux primer and 2 heavy coats of Dulux Roof membrane to the roof, in order to protect it from the elements, such as wind, rain and ice, as well as to help keep out pests and improve the overall aesthetic of the property.

How long does roof paint last?

Using a quality coating and done with the right preparation your newly painted roof will last approximately 10 to 15 years. Paint will fade over time.

Satin finishes may last a little longer.

What is the warranty for roof restoration?

Restoration includes a 10-year labour warranty and 5-year leak free warranty.

Is restoration or painting better?

It depends on the current condition of your roof, is it leaking in multiple areas or just looking tired?

Roof restoration is a much better option than roof painting if you have severe leaks, it requires more labour as the entire roof is effectively rebuild. Roof restoration takes the entire roof back to truss, sarking is installed and then the roof is put back on replacing broken tiles, and then the roof can optionally be painted. Restoration ensures that the entire roof is thoroughly checked and any potential problems are addressed. Additionally, because the entire roof is having sarking installed, it is unlikely to leak compared to a roof that is simply painted. Therefore, roof restoration is a more reliable and long-lasting solution than roof painting.

What is the cost of roof painting?

The average roof repainting costs around $2,500 to $7,000 plus GST. It depends on the size of the home, condition of the roof and if it is a single or double story. The cost of roof painting can vary greatly depending on the size of the roof, the material and condition of the roof, the type of paint being used, whether it is a single or double story and the complexity of the job.

Wayne and his expert roofing team are the ideal trades team. From the initial call for a quote to the follow up after the job was complete Wayne and AllCoast roofing were a delight to deal with. The quote was not the cheapest or the most expensive but the finished product I have no doubt is the best possible. Our roof was checked over, an accurate assessment made, and value-for money quote provided. Then the very thorough cleaning, repointing and renovation work, and finally painting were all carried out by their respective tradesmen in a thorough and professional way. After dealing with a few other trades for other services I can honestly say AllCoast roofing is the best in the business! Thank you Wayne and team, I love my updated roof!
