What is Metal Roof Restoration?
Metal Roof restoration (also known as roof painting, roof re-spray) is a great way of restoring the appearance of sheet metal roofs to an ‘as-new’ condition. Older metal roofs deteriorate in appearance and its water protection is compromised.

A good metal roof keeps your home water proof and adds value. A metal roof restoration may help you save money and the expense of a replacing a metal roof prematurely.

How do you restore metal roofs?
Roof Restoration can be complex and difficult depending on the steepness, height and design structure of the roof. We follow a 4-step process Roof Restoration Process to restore your roof to its former glory.
- Roof Check
The metal roof is checked for leaks. Loose roof sheets and flashings are secured. Nails and rusted tek screws are replaced with new Tek screws where needed. If roof sheets are in poor condition they are replaced.
- Pressure Cleaning
The roof is pressured cleaned with an industrial grade roof pressure cleaner. This removes scale, dirt and loose rust to clean the roof surface thoroughly. This means that roof membranes will adhere to the roof sheets.
- Rust Treatment
Where rust is found a treatment is applied to ensure the metal roof is water tight. It will also create a strong surface for the primers and membranes to adhere to.
- Roofing Membrane Application
A primer coating is applied to the metal roof. Followed by an additional two (2) coats of the metal roof membrane. This membrane is available in a range of colours to meet your needs and preference. We use the “Colourtile Membrane System”. Heat reflective paints/membranes are available for clients that request it.
