Repainting Your Colorbond Roof
Last Updated May 31, 2013 · Written by Kat Tate
How’s your roof looking? All that time out in the sun, wind and rain can cause it to fade over time. While COLORBOND® is a hardy roofing material, there may come a time when you wish to give it another coat. In this article, we look at how and when to repaint your COLORBOND® roof.
What is COLORBOND®?
COLORBOND® is a steel product, available in a rainbow of colour coatings. The standard range boasts 20 designer colours, so it’s easy to pick a hue to suit your home and outdoor space.
The material is a favourite among builders and renovators, as it is seen as strong, secure, stylish and eco-friendly. It can be mixed and matched with downpipes, guttering and fascia for a complete, cohesive look.
New Roof or Repaint?
Over time, COLORBOND® - like any roofing material – can fade. This is usually caused by weathering and can be fixed with a new lick of paint. Repainting the roof is a much cheaper option than ripping it off and installing a new one.
A professional painter will be able to colour match the new paint to your roof, using COLORBOND® codes. It’s worth bearing in mind, however, that if you’re using COLORBOND® for a touch-up, the new paint may not match other faded parts of the roof. For this reason, it can be wise to re-paint the entire roof, gutters, downpipes and fascia and get the entire structure looking like new.
Who Can Repaint a COLORBOND® Roof?
While you can pick up COLORBOND® for touch-ups, it’s not going to guarantee the best results. For safety, security and a superior finish, it’s best to hire a professional roof painter. Ensure your painter is experienced with COLORBOND® repainting.
It’s a good idea to view the painter’s credentials, insurance, experience and previous work to ensure their standards meet your expectations.
