A Step-By-Step Breakdown of Our Roof Painting Process

Before starting any painting work, any potential issues with your roof must be first addressed. Our process involves a thorough restoration that includes an inspection, repairs, cleaning, and more. Restoring your roof first ensures it’s in the best possible condition to receive the new coat of paint before starting while also preventing minor repairs or issues from turning into a major financial burden.

Painting your roof is a step-by-step process where every step is crucial to achieving a finish that’s as durable as it is eye-catching.

How We Provide You the Best Roof Paint Job on the Market


The key reason it’s essential to trust a painting project with professional roofers is our ability to detect any unseen issues with your roof before we start painting. Small cracks, slight wear, or even a loose tile might seem like a small inconvenience but can lead to significant issues and a major financial burden if not addressed.

Our comprehensive inspection ensures that your roof is fully evaluated and inspected, guaranteeing that the painting is not just a cover-up but an enhancement to your home. Our inspection means peace of mind. With our thorough assessment, you’re not just getting a paint job; you’re ensuring that your roof is in its best possible state before we start the roof painting process.

Repairs & Maintenance

This stage addresses the wear and tear your roof may have endured over the years. Repairs and maintenance could include replacing damaged tiles, sealing roof leaks, and more. Preemptive repairs are the best way to save you from future headaches and significant costs.

Pressure Clean & Sterilisation

The number one step in any roof paint job is a top-notch wash. Painting over accumulated grime and dirt will decrease the longevity of your new coat and allow lichen or grime to continue to grow under your tiles and accelerate the deterioration of your roof. Additionally, our state-of-the-art paint can not properly bind to your tiles’ surface without a clean surface, leading to discolouration and a poor finish.

High-pressure cleaning strips away the years of accumulated dirt, moss, and debris, revealing a clean surface ready for painting. Cleaning is essential to ensure your paint adheres perfectly, giving your roof a smooth and even finish. In addition, we’ll also clear out the gutters of any accumulated debris. A clean roof is the best starting point for painting. This thorough cleaning ensures the paint job’s longevity and ensures that your chosen colour stands out and catches the eye of anyone passing by. After cleaning, we also apply two coats of sterilising solution to help further prevent moss, lichen, or algae regrowth.

Pointing Touch Ups

Once the cleaning’s completed, we’ll give your roof a pointing touch-up to ensure your tile caps are properly sealed. Pointing is the additional layer of cement that joins the ridge caps of your roof to provide a smooth, even leak-proof finish.


Before painting, it’s essential to protect sections of your roof we want to keep unpainted to ensure we achieve that sharp, uniform roof paint finish. Masking involves adding strips of specialist tape to your bricks, plaster, vents, etc. Proactively taping these sections prevents the paint from coating the exterior walls of your home, keeping your paint job looking clean and refined.

Undercoat Application

The right primer or undercoat sets the perfect canvas for a roof paint job. It ensures that your roof is ready to hold the paint, enhancing its durability and vibrancy of the colour. It’s about creating a uniform, sealed surface to help your paint last for years. With an adequately primed roof, you can rest assured that the paint will adhere better, last longer, and provide a uniformly eye-catching finish.

Now, we have reached the final stage, our experienced roof painters apply superior Dulux paints, significantly enhancing your roof’s appearance. This step does more than change the colour; it revitalises your roof, making your home stand out to neighbours and prospective buyers.

With the added benefit of offering any colour from the extensive Dulux Acratex paint line, you can choose a shade that reflects your style and complements your home. The result is not just a visually appealing roof but an investment that elevates your home’s overall impression and value.

Make An Informed Decision for Your Roof
UV Protection

With high-quality tiles, a fresh new roof offers excellent reflective properties to prevent UV light from penetrating your home, keeping you comfortable and temperate.

Physical Protection

Your tiles are a physical barrier for falling trees, hail, or pests such as rats, possums, and birds from nesting in your attic. An uncompromised roof also protects your insulation.

Pollutant Barrier

Your roof is an essential barrier to the external environment, working in tangent with your ventilation to prevent pollutants and allergens from entering your living space.


With many residential building inspections failing on the roof, a new roof adds significant value to your home.

Foot Traffic

An immediate consideration is that foot traffic, including gutter cleaning, solar installations, etc., can cause roof tile cracks. A qualified roofer can immediately replace cracked tiles before any further damage starts.


Within as soon as ten years, the pointing of your roof can start showing signs of cracking (further worsened by foot traffic). A quick pointing touch-up is a simple way to prevent further damage.

Accumulated Grime

Within ten years, the first signs of moss and lichen will start to show (particularly in moist environments). A periodic powerwash is the best way to keep your roof looking fresh.

Dislodged End Cap

Usually one of the first things to go, your ridge cap end tile can start to feel the weight of gravity and begin to slide. This is an easy fix at this stage.

Cracked Pointing

More extensively cracked and peeling ridge pointing will start to show, exposing the mortar under your hip tiles (ridge caps). Should you address the issue soon enough, a qualified roofer could save the bedding with a cost-effective pointing touch-up.

Dislodged Flashings

Your roof’s flashings can become dislodged over time and may need replacement. A simple installation of a lead-free, adhesive flashing is a cost-effective way to prevent further damage.


At a minimum, we recommend a roofing inspection of your roof to have any routine maintenance complete and ensure your roof is in functional condition.

Accumulated Grime

Moss and lichen will continue to grow, making your roof look lacklustre and contributing to cracking of your pointing. A simple roof clean by an expert is a great way to nip this issue in the bud.

Dislodged Shell Cap

If your end ridge tile is not addressed soon, it can continue to slide and allow the tiles it sits on to begin to slide into your gutter.

Loose Ridge Caps

Ridge caps are likely loose at this point. When this occurs, complete cleaning and replacing bedding cement is required to ensure the ridges are refastened and stay in place.

Degraded Pointing

If left unattended, the pointing of your ridge caps (at a bare minimum) needs replacing to keep your ridge caps secure.

Faded Colour

With age, all roofs will lose their colour/glaze. Restoring this is for cosmetic purposes, but when all maintenance is completed, followed by re-sealing and painting, it will add a new lease of life to an old, bland roof.

Dislodged End Cap

By this stage, your end cap could have continued to slide off, leaving no weight on its under tiles. This not only looks terrible but also allows water ingress.

Replacement Required

At this point, your roof may be beyond repair. Moss could have penetrated under your tiles, unattended mechanical stress could leave your tiles riddled with cracks, and your ridge caps likely need complete repair. Unfortunately, complete reroofing may be the only solution.

Use our interactive tool to explore the long-term benefits of quality roofing:

Leak Protection

The roof tiles are designed to allow rain to run freely off your roof and into your gutter to prevent pooling on your roof’s surface.

Controlled Runoff

Your roof’s valleys act as a securely sealed, free-flowing channel to allow stormwater to run seamlessly into your gutters.

Leak Protection

The ridges of your roof are fastened with bedding cement and sealed with pointing mortar to prevent water ingress.

Leak Protection

Flashings are small pieces of metal placed around your roof’s joints to act as a tight and secure waterproofing barrier.

Weather Damage

Strong winds caused by storms can dislodge valley tiles. Having an expert roofer clip these back into place is an easy and cost-effective way to avoid further damage.

Accumulated Debris

Within ten years, debris and organic matter will start to fill in your gutter, increasing the chances of rust and water overflow. A simple, quick emptying of your gutter is the best way to avoid any issues.

Water Ingress

Any cracked and unattended pointing will start to make your roof vulnerable to water ingress, with a high chance of leaks beginning to move through your ceiling and into your attic.

Lost Flashings

Flashings aged 20 years are highly sensitive to wind gusts, proving a prime access point for water infiltration.

Dislodged Tiles

At the 20-year mark, multiple roof tiles are likely to become dislodged. Having an expert lock them in place is a simple way to prevent leaks.

Soaked Insulation

At this point, unattended leaks are already soaking your ceiling insulation, making it an excellent breeding ground for mould and rendering the insulation effectively useless.

Mouldy Insulation

If exposed to moisture, your ceiling insulation has heavily degraded and is likely full of mould. Degraded insulation is an excellent breeding ground for mould and could be promptly replaced to keep your indoor space healthy and comfortable.

Water Ingress

Unattended ridge caps with deteriorated pointing and bedding are a leading reason for water ingress and leaks coming through your ceiling.

Interior Damage

Any unattended leaks will show on your ceiling and walls as yellow stains and mould. An expert professionally treating your home for mould and water stains is costly…

Electrical Hazard

Unattended leaks are a significant electrical hazard and could be dripping onto electricals. If exposed to water, this poses a considerable fire risk and likely needs complete replacement.

Attic Damage

An unattended roof will likely allow multiple entry points for water ingress into your ceiling. Wood rot of your trusses could be a significant issue at this point, and the plaster of your ceiling may need complete replacement.
