Restoring your metal roof

Having been in the roof restoration industry for 20 years I cannot emphasis enough the importance of preparation and quality products. See Clint’s review. Bearing in mind that every roof is different, here are some of the common things I look out for:

  • Safe work assessment
    Before either myself or my workers commence your roof restoration we develop a safe work method statement.
  • Rust spots
    An rust-inhibitor needs to be applied to stop the rusting process advancing any further.
  • Pressure cleaning
    Along with the right sterilisers, I only use the right equipment such as turbo heads and adequate machinery. Preparation is key.
  • Etch primer
    This step is necessary for the roof coatings to be able to bond adequately to the surface.
  • Roof spraying
    There is a great difference in the primers, sealers and top coats on the market. Attention to detail (such as changing the spray tip) makes a big difference to the finished look of your roof.
  • Cool Roof
    This is a very effective additive that keeps your roof from heating up under direct sunlight.
