If you’re looking to spruce up your roof, a new paint job is a simple and cost-effective option. Paint can help preserve and seal your roofing materials, while increasing your building’s curb appeal. Roof painting can be an important part of your roof maintenance routine. It will likely save you money on more costly roof repairs in the long run. Still, your roof doesn’t always need a fresh coat of paint. Read below to learn about the best times to consider painting your roof.
During your spring cleaning or general home renovations
If you are planning any significant projects that will have parts of your home out of commission, consider using this time to have your roof painted. You can plan to be away from your home or out of project areas, to allow professionals to work efficiently. So, plan ahead to schedule projects around the same time, so you don’t need to restructure your life and schedule too many times.
You notice your roof coating is breaking down
Paint and sealants act as a membrane for your roof. Over time, these protectants begin to break down, exposing vulnerable roofing materials to the elements. If worn down roof paint and sealant is ignored, you will likely encounter more expensive problems down the track. Avoid a complete roof replacement by maintaining your roof’s paint if you notice that it has begun to break down.
It’s been 10-15 years since your last paint job
In general, professionals recommend that roofs should be painted every 10 to 15 years. Your roof has likely experienced a vast array of weather conditions and harsh sunlight during these years, so contact roof professionals for a roof inspection. The Singh Roofing can help you understand the condition of your roof and its paint.
You’re looking for an aesthetic change
Painting your roof is a smart way to transform your building. The colour of your roof will dramatically affect the overall look of your building. If you’ve been meaning to make some changes to your home and you have finally found the perfect colour, it may be time to paint your roof! After years of neglect, your roof will begin to fade and look worn, but a new paint job can add life to your building.
The weather is dry and appropriate for roof maintenance
It should come as no surprise that roof maintenance projects should ideally be scheduled during the driest time of year. Rain will delay the roof painting process, and too much harsh sunlight may affect the evenness of your paint coating. Consult with the Singh Roofing team to learn more about the best time of year to schedule your roof painting. Additionally, they can provide advice about the best paint to use depending on your specific climate requirements. Some paints are more resistant to UV light while others are better for cold and wet climates.
Whether you’re looking to maintain the structural integrity of your roof, or you just want your building to look fresh, a new coat of paint will do the job. Keep track of your painting schedule, since your roof should be painted every 10-15 years.
