ROOF PAINTING Process
The painting and restoration of a roof can really be broken down to five steps:
Firstly the roof is cleaned with high pressure water. During this process all the years of ingrained dirt and grime will be removed from the tile surface. The pressure is so high 5000psi that it usually removes most of the original glaze from the tile surface leaving us with a roar concrete surface ready to prime. On occasions where the roof surface has been previously coated we will often clean the roof twice to unsure all the old paint material has been removed from the surface of the tile.
Once the roof has been fully cleaned it is easier to spot any potential problems that need to be rectified. We inspect all the tiles to check for any cracks or breakages and swap tiles out where needed. The pointing and bedding is inspected to check for integrity after cleaning. In metal roof painting jobs the roof screws are inspected for rust at this point and replaced if necessary.
At this stage we re-point the entire roof. The modern roof pointing that we use is highly flexible and don’t break and crack with small movements like old roof pointing did. In most roofs the original bedding can be left in place and the cap tiles simply pointed over. In some cases the original bedding has failed and meant that all the cap tiles must be removed and rebed.
At Oz-Roof we only use the Dulux Hi-Build roof painting primer for all our roof painting and restoration jobs. The primer only costs slightly more but is really worth it. The high build primer is thicker than standard primer. It is white in colour and works really well to build up the old roof tile surface and block all the pores. The quality of the finished roof paint surface really depends most on how well the cleaning and priming stages are done.
The last stage of the roof painting and restoration is the colour coat. This is always applied in 2 generous coats and finishes the job. The finish is always gloss on a tiled roof and satin for a metal roof. This can also be done with optional heat reflective Dulux Cool Roof Residential Coating.
Benefits of Roof Painting
- Even the most tired and washed out roof can be completely transformed with our Dulux products. Its also possible to make a colour change. Any colour can be chosen regardless of the original tile colour. Whether its tile or metal the difference is amazing.
When roof tiles get old they tend to loose all of their original glaze and become porous. The porous condition of the tile means that each and every time it rains the tile will absorb water and then gradually dry out.
- The repeated action of this over prolonged periods causes the tile to become very brittle and prone to breakages when walked upon. Its best to recoat a roof as soon as possible after it becomes porous to prolong the life of the roof tiles.
Roof Painting with Solar Panels
These days most roofs have solar panels installed. We are often asked what can be done when it comes to roof painting, roof restoration and reroofing when a roof already has solar panels installed. We work with several solar installers in Adelaide on a very regular basis. It is as simple as one phone call for us to have a system of any size removed and reinstalled after our work has completed.
For Tile roof restorations and roof painting we usually recommend removing the panels only and leaving the rails and mounting hardware still attached to the roof. This allows us access to inspect and replace any broken tiles under the solar panel area and be sure of the integrity of the roof before re-installation of the panels. In cases where the roof is in reasonable condition or the customer is budget conscious, we can leave the solar panels in place and mask up over them before coating the roof around them.
For re-roofing and tile conversion projects the panels and rails must be removed. We usually send our solar guys out several days before we start our work to remove and stack the panels. Where the roof is converted from Tile to metal (colourbond) we cannot reuse any of the original rails and mounting hardware and will supply new of these to reinstall the panels.
Heat Reflective options with Dulux and Oz-Roof:
There are some fantastic options with the Dulux Heat reflective Cool Roof Residential range. The performance of the Dulux product is fantastic and they really work. On a typical roof painting restoration it usually costs around $1500 extra to use the product.

Why use Oz-Roof over other roof painting companies?
We are Not a franchise!
We are a locally owned and operated roof restoration business servicing the local area. When you make a phone call to us it won’t go through to a national call centre. The person that inspects your roof will issue the quote and then manage the job to completion.
No Money down!
We have a no money upfront policy. While other companies charge a hefty deposit and often ask for a percentage of the job upfront to lock you in, we don’t play any of those games. We just ask for a $100 deposit and don’t ask for a cent more until your roof restoration is fully complete and you are 100% happy with your new roof. No risk, No pressure. No BS.
Because we aren’t a big company with huge overheads or part of a national franchise system we are able to be very competitively priced. From years of feedback, we have found that we are generally 30% – 40% cheaper than the big name brands and franchises – This is while delivering a quality of work that exceeds our competitors.
Specialists in roofing
We just do one thing and do it really well. We wont try to sell you Roller shutters or Solar panels or steak knives or pizzas! Roofing is what we know and love and the only thing we do. Don’t go with a company that sells everything under the sun, they cant possibly take their roofing as seriously as we do.
Backing of the big name manufactures!
We might be a small company but through a proven history of quality work, we have the backing of some of the big name suppliers in the Roof Restoration Industry. We use Revolution Roofing for all our Iron roofs and Tile to Colourbond conversions.
The Revolution Roofing products come with the highest warranty on the market. For all our Tile Roof Restorations we exclusively use Dulux Acratex products. Oz-Roof are a Dulux certified applicator and that means the full Dulux 15 years warranty comes with all our Restorations.
Tradesmen not salesmen
The person that comes to your house is a tradesman of many years experience that really knows roofing. We are not a company that sends you a high pressure sales person with no real industry experience who will probably be selling Indoor blinds at his next appointment. We don’t play sales games either.
We generally give you a fixed price quote verbally at our roof inspection and then follow it up with a formal quote by email.
No “for a limited time only” No, “If you sign up today we will give you a fake discount” No, “Free plasma TV for this week only” We just give up front discussion and quote with no games.

Yes, our work comes with a 15 year warranty. This is backed up by Dulux as Oz-Roof are certified applicators of the Dulux Acratex product. For more information please refer to our blog post Roof Restoration with a 15 year warranty.
Yes we do. We offer the Dulux Acratex Cool roof residential product as an upgrade to any roof painting done by us.
As every roof is a little different it really depends on the job type. Most of our roof painting in Adelaide is completed in 3-5 days in good weather.
Yes this is not a problem at all. We undertake roof painting with solar panels in place or we may recommend having the solar panels removed to ensure the entire roof surface is coated. We will arrange the removal for you if this is what we recommend. For more detailed information refer to our blog post Roof painting and roof restoration with solar panels.

Yes, Oz-Roof maintains a Public Liability Insurance policy of 20 million at all times. A certificate of currency for this can be produced if required.
No, this is not true. Unfortunately, there are a few roof painting companies out there that use this as a sales pitch. The reality is that after a successful roof painting or roof restoration the entire roof surface is sealed and no longer porous. For more detailed information on this refer to our blog post Roof Restoration vs Roof Sealing vs Roof painting explained.
There are many, probably the most significant are an increase in property value and drastically increasing the serviceable life of the roof tiles by sealing them and ensuring they are no longer porous. For more detailed information on this read our blog post 10 things you should know before doing a roof restoration.
