Choose wisely when deciding on a roofing company. It is very important that the problem areas are
identified and treated correctly.

Three key factors to consider prior to appointing a contractor is:
preparation, application, and products.

Preparations:

TILE ROOFS

Waterproof prevents leaks and painting protect your roof. Tile roofs are made from cement and can
be hotbeds for algae. They need to be washed to remove all fungus and treated with a suitable
bonding liquid. If preparation is not done correctly it will cause future paint peeling.

ZINC ROOFS

Zinc Roof painting is not a luxury but a necessity. The galvanized or chromadeck wears over time and
this will leave the metal exposed to rust. The rust needs to be removed from the zinc and treated with
correct chemicals and primer prior to painting

Application

Make sure what maintenance is required prior to applying waterproofing as there are different
materials and application methods. There are two painting methods: a spray on and brush on method.
The brush on is better value for money applied by trained professional painters. This method can
cause leaks should it not be done correctly.

Products

Products are the most important factor for a successful roof repair. Most painting companies only
guarantee their labour and not the product. It is crucial to have a product and workmanship /labour
guarantee
Good luck with your home improvement project!
Remember that a leak free roof is the most valuable part of any property.
