Roof painting in the Northern Rivers: we paint all kinds of roofs
including colourbond, tiles and commercial roofs.
Tin or Colorbond Roof Painting
When painting a tin roof, it can be especially important to clean the old coating extremely well, for without a proper clean with a very high pressure cleaner, the coating can become powdery and loose (making it difficult for the new coating to adhere). Full Circle Refinishing offers a full range of colors and several varieties of Sun Tuff Paints, a trusted and well known Australian made paint with a fantastic finish. We also have a qualified team member inspect and repair or replace roof sections as and when required as per our quote. After cleaning, the tin or Colorbond is sprayed with a grey primer (sealing and preparing the roof for two top-coats). In often quick succession on a calm fine day, the next coat of top-coat containing colour can be applied and then the final top-coat shortly afterwards. Thermal protection roof paint can be made available, as well as a range of self-cleaning type paints for maximum visual effect and durability.
Tiled roofs can often be dramatically rejuvenated from cleaning and re-painting, making a home or business look and feel really fresh. Like most painting work, the correct preparation of a tiled roof for painting, is absolutely key. Before painting all tiles must be cleaned from all angles. After cleaning the pointing (or tile grout) needs to be re-done to seal joins. Valleys require cleaning-out thoroughly and where required, a qualified roofer will replace cracked tiles, repair lead work and inspect sky-lights. For tiles that are not sealed at the manufacturing stage, Full Circle always recommends 2 coats of sealer to give the roof water-tight integrity. Each coat of sealer is applied one after the other. Then a further two coats of your preferred Sun Tuff paint is applied. Unless weather or scale is an issue, once the roof is prepared and dry, all coats of sealer and paint are applied in one day.
The paint on a house’s roof is constantly open to the elements. In various sections of this website the opportunity cost, or benefits of periodical roof cleaning have been discussed. Whilst your roof paint is intended to last a long time, leaving a roof coating to degrade for too long, especially in our coastal regions, can lead to more work later down the track – with roof sections requiring premature replacement, or water absorption in roofing materials leading to extra weight on the roof structure.

Before & After
Here we can see a roof that has been severely neglected; it’s roofing screws are in places beginning to rust quite considerably, paint has faded or gone powdery and even been stripped completely back to a bare surface after pressure cleaning.
The process followed was to replace about 100 roofing screws, remove and replace quite a lot of silicone around inlets, exhaust pipes and where aerials etc were attached to the roof and then spray two thick coats of Gull Grey Sun Tuff Paint.
All in all, this was a complete turn-around before more costly deterioration could set-in.
