The roof painting process can really be broken down to five steps:

Roof Cleaning

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 roof 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 or painted we will often clean the roof twice to unsure all the old paint material has been removed from the surface of the tile.

Roof Repairs

Once the roof has been fully cleaned it is easier to spot any potential problems that need to be rectified. We inspect all the roof 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.

Roof Pointing

At this stage we re-point the entire roof. The modern roof pointing that we use is highly flexible and doesn’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 tile bedding has failed and meant that all the cap tiles must be removed and have the bedding replaced.

Roof Priming

At Oz-Roof we only use the Dulux Hi-Build roof painting primer for all our roof painting jobs. The primer only costs slightly more but is well worth the extra cost. The Hi-Build primer is thicker than standard roof primer. It is white in colour and works very well to build up and seal the old roof tile surface by blocking all the pores. The quality of the finished roof paint surface really depends most on how well the cleaning and priming stages are done.

Colour Coating

The last stage of the roof painting process is the colour coating stage. We always apply two generous coats of the colour roof paint. Unlike a lot of other roof painting companies we never mix water with our roof paint and this ensure a true deep roof paint colour. The finish is always gloss on a tiled roof and satin for a metal roof. This can also be done with optional heat reflective roof paint for an additional charge.


Now everytime you drive up the driveway or check the letter box you can look back and admire your new roof – just like the guy in the colourbond Ad!

Benefits of Roof Painting

Appearance: Roof painting can dramatically change the look of a house. Just check our before and after images to see for yourself.
  • Even the most tired and washed out roof can be completely transformed with our experienced roof painters and the Dulux products we use. When painting a roof it is also possible to make a colour change. Any new roof colour can be chosen regardless of the original roof 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 roof 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.

Colourbond Roof painting

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. In areas with hotter environments the product is very popular as it reduces air-conditioner load every day of the year. All the data is available on the Dulux site with specific information on heat reflectivity factors on various colours.

Before After


The cost of roof painting really depends on the job. We consider access and roof pitch as the most influencing factors of price when it comes to roof painting. As a round guide an average house will usually be around $6500+GST for a full roof painting job. This includes repointing the cap tiles with new flexible polymer based pointing compound and replacing around 20 broken tiles. For a slightly large or more difficult roof painting job the cost could be $7500-$8500 + GST. We always give a rough estimate from online imagery over the phone or via inline enquiry when requested.


The cost to upgrade to the Dulux Cool Roof Residential heat reflective roof paint product on an average sized house is around $1500+GST. This price is in addition to the above prices and subject to the overall size of the roof area.

To see more information on these follow this link to the Dulux site.

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, 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 roof respraying has been completed. For tile 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. We can usually get the roof respray under the outside edge of the panels by around 100mm so that no original tile colour can be seen from the ground.


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. In areas with hotter environments the product is very popular as it reduces air-conditioner load every day of the year. All the data is available on the Dulux site with specific information on heat reflectivity factors on various colours.

Why use Oz-Roof over other roof painting companies?

Not a franchise brand!

We are a locally owned and operated roof painting business servicing the Adelaide 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 your roof painting job to completion.

No upfront deposit!

We don’t change a hefty deposit before starting your job. While other companies 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 painting in Adelaide is fully complete and you are 100% happy with your newly painted roof. No risk, No pressure. No BS.

Competitively priced!

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 roof painting and do it really well. We won’t 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 can’t possibly take their roof painting as seriously as we do.

Backing of the big name manufacturers!

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 Painting Industry. For all our Tile Roof Painting we exclusively use Dulux Acratex products.

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.
