It goes without saying that no matter where you reside in Australia, your roof will take a beating from our harsh environment.
Due to UV exposure, salt-laden winds, drenching downpours, and corrosive pollution, metal roofs, terracotta, and concrete tiles all degrade and age.
“If you own a home, you already know that the roof is one of the most crucial components of your home. So, it makes sense to safeguard it, keep it well-maintained, and in good condition”
Regardless of the roof type, roof paints or roof coatings provide the best protection. The appropriate roofing paint will extend the life of any roof by many years, raise the value of your home, and keep your roof looking brand new.
Whether you want to improve the durability and water resistance of your roof, increase heat reflective thermal performance, or simply change the colour of your roof, our comprehensive guide to picking the best roofing paint for your purposes is must-read.
WHAT IS THE BEST ROOFING PAINT?
The first question to ask when selecting the best roof paint for your roof is… What type of roof do you want to paint?
Metal roofs, terracotta roofs, and concrete tile roofs all require roof coatings that are specifically formulated for them. Prior to painting, you may need to clean and seal the roof.
The right primer will seal and protect metal roofs from corrosion, as well as fill and seal cracked concrete tile roofs and create a sufficient surface for topcoat adhesion.
If you want your roof restoration to work properly, you must do this step correctly.
WHY ARE YOU PAINTING YOUR ROOF?
Are you painting your roof to preserve it from corrosion and colour fading, to prevent algae and mould growth, to reduce dirt retention, or to increase the heat reflecting value of your roof so you can stay cool inside during the hot summer months?

WHY IS IT A GOOD IDEA TO PAINT THE ROOF?
Roofing paint has several advantages that much outweigh the expense of roof painting. Roof paints are, in fact, the most cost-effective option to improve the aesthetic of your roof while also prolonging its longevity. Dulux Acratex® Roof Membrane is a high-quality, high build, pigmented, water based, 100% acrylic coating. It is designed to be applied to suitably prepared concrete, metal roofs or type of roof in need of restoration.
The following are some of the benefits of roof painting:

- Colours are available in a wide range of options.
Dulux Acratex® Roof Membrane offers more than 40 colours in roof paint range that includes the Colorbond® range as well as a wide range of reds, Greys, terracotta’s, whites, and neutrals.
Whether you’re recladding your house’s walls or simply looking for a fresh colour scheme, Dulux Acratex® roofing paint is the ideal choice.
HOW LONG DOES ROOF PAINT LAST?
Roof paint can last for 15 years or more if you use the right high-quality paint for the job, followed by accepted application techniques and adequate surface preparation.
No matter how good the paint is, if the surface is not properly prepared, the paint will not last as long.
The amount of time your paint takes to dry and the conditions in which it dries play a huge effect in how well it works. Given the wide range of meteorological conditions that can occur in Australia, this is extremely crucial.
For all paint kinds, it’s crucial to follow the manufacturer’s directions regarding preparation, temperature, and drying times.
Dulux Acratex Roof Membrane has been improved with HueTech® technology to offer superior UV and excellent colour fade resistance, allowing the colour to last up to 2 x as longer. With improved application and colour benefits, the full range is suitable for collection of drinking water and now available with a 15-year warranty *. Range available in popular Dulux and Colorbond® colours.
‘’When it comes to choosing the right roofing paint for your situation, colour fade is a crucial factor to consider’’.
Please keep in mind that proper product selection, surface preparation, and coating application all have an impact on the overall performance of any roof paint and will affect the overall roof painting cost.
Many paint kinds are ideal for DIY roof painters, but some coating types require the expertise of experienced professionals to obtain a satisfactory paint finish.
