Our first step was to replace the gutters as they were in poor condition. Many of the gutter joints had failed and were leaking, some sections of guttering were completely rusted through.
With the new Colorbond gutters installed, the next step was to replace all the rusty roof screws.
The majority of the roof screws were rusty so the best option was to remove ALL the roof screws and replace with new high quality roof screws. The last thing you would want to do is paint over rusty screws and have the paint fail and the rust come back through the newly painted surface.
The next phase was to pressure clean the roof to remove the dirt, dust and oxidized paint. Our 20hp pressure cleaner is a powerhouse at removing dirt and debris from any surface. As with any painting project, the importance of starting with a clean surface is paramount.
Once the pressure cleaning was completed, the roof was inspected and any flashings or roof penetrations were resealed.
The final phase was the application of a metal primer and then two coats of NXT heat reflective paint in a low sheen finish in “Jasper” colour. NXT “Cool Zone” heat reflective paint is a great way to make a house cooler by up to 10 degrees, so well worth considering if your planning to undertake a roof restoration.
What a great finish and fantastic result. The roof looks brand new again and our clients are very happy!
The best and simple way to keep your beautiful home in pristine condition, is to give your roof a new lease of life with a roof restoration.
