Benefits of Roof Painting
The roof is painted for aesthetic purposes. But that’s not the only benefit of painting roofs.
Roof painting includes a protective reflective layer to minimise the effect of UV rays and heat. The build-up of dirt, moss, mould and algae is cleared up and the room will remain drier and water-resistant. The reflective paint keeps the roof cool and also prevents the roof from getting damaged by weather. This ensures your roof lasts for a long time.
A new roof is protected by a coating which prevents wind and weather from damaging it. The coating protects the roof from getting damaged for a certain amount of time. But when this coating wears off, the roof is susceptible to the elements. A high quality roof painting will last for decades and keep your home protected.
How long does it take to paint a roof?
The time taken to paint a roof depends on the size of the roof, roofing material and weather conditions. On an average, it takes around 1-3 days to paint the roof.

The cost of your roof painting project can depend on various factors like:
- Size of the roof

- Accessibility - is your roof easy to access? Does your contractor need to hire a hoist?
- Whether you have a single or a double-storey home
Depending on the project, your roof painter will also have to pressure clean the roof, replace the damaged tiles and repoint.
