When to replace ColorBond barge boards & paint a tile roof

Introduction

Roofs that are not maintained will perish. You will find that tile roofs that are not waterproofed and painted regularly will start to crack and the tiles will break. Tiles will start separating because of insufficient and failing waterproofing. Because of waterproofing failing the roof will start to leak water. Damp will form inside the roof and mould will grow. The occupants will fall ill from the mould and repairs will be expensive.

The owner of this property has his property on a strict maintenance plan. The maintenance team of Tremco is called out every 5 years when his guarantee expires.

Problem/situation

Possible outcome

Suggestion

It was suggested that the roof needs to be washed down, old waterproofing replaced and that a fresh coat of paint be applied.

Work was done

Tremco’s expert maintenance team cleaned the roof using a high-pressure hose. Barge boards, as well as waterproofing, were replaced where necessary. The roof was then painted with a quality UV resistant paint.
