Roof Restoration: exterior painting is a facelift for your home

Whether you house is looking a bit worse for wear, or you want a new look to your current house. A fresh coat of paint is always a great step to gaining that facelift for your home! But don’t bypass the roof in the renovation as it too provides additional benefits.

We here at JMZ Roof Restorations have come up with a quick guide to help you decided what is the best option for you and your home.

First of all product, start off with a high-quality paint or acrylic paint. You will then want to decide on a colour, unfortunately if your house is made from brick it may be difficult to change colours, however depending on the colour set of your brick veneer you will be able to paint the roof, guttering, down pipes and other exterior fittings.

By choosing a complimentary colour to brighten up your house, you will effectively add street appeal which will certainly improve the overall property value. We recommend sticking with neutral colours as they are more likely to please yourself and appeal to the visual aesthetics for passers-by and potential future buyers.

Lastly for a better finish on all your painting jobs, this largely depends on the existing surface and the condition of the exterior areas being painted. We always recommend that you clean, sand and remove as many impurities as it is possible to have a paint coating that is bubble free, clean and most importantly long lasting.

Our teams of professionals at JMZ Roof Restorations know how important it is to get the job done the first time, every time. We offer a range of services from roof restorations for metal, tiled and terracotta roofs, to roof repairs and re-roofing your house, alongside a range of other services from exterior painting to driveway resealing.

Globalcote Roof Coating System

Globalcote Roof Membrane Coating System

When you are looking at restoring a roof, you want the job to last a long time. Any products you use need to withstand the test of time and Australia’s extreme climate conditions. The Globalcote Roof Membrane Coating System is designed and formulated by a chemist, with over 40 years of experience in the roof restoration industry, to protect your roof restoration against the harmful effects of the Australian climate. Globalcote Roof Membrane Coatings are designed and manufactured to last a long time in the harshest of environments, such as we have in parts of Australia. Globalcote roof coating is heat resistant and most heat is reflected off the coating making your home or building cooler during the hot summer months, which reduces energy consumption and lowers electricity costs.

One of the largest manufacturers in the world produces Globalcote Roof Membrane Coatings, using the highest quality pigments to ensure the restored roof has the most resistance possible to aging and signs of weathering such as fading and dis-colouration in the harsh Australian weather conditions.

As Globalcote Roof Membrane Coatings are manufactured in Australia to suit Australian conditions they are specially formulated to protect your roof restoration much longer than a conventional acrylic roof coating. The roof membrane coating is completely waterproof and dirt repellent, so roof cleaning requirements are minimal.

Made from 100% acrylic high gloss, Globalcote Roof Membrane Coatings are designed to resurface concrete roof tiles and metal roofing. According to the latest research pure acrylic roof coatings are the most resistant to ultra violet light and have the greatest durability.

Globalcote Roof Membrane coatings can be applied using a brush, roller or can be sprayed onto:

  • Concrete slab buildings
  • Brick and block construction
  • Concrete and terracotta roof tiles
  • Fibro cement sheeting

If you would like more information about the Globalcote Roof Coating system click here, or contact JMZ Roof Restorations, they provide a 10 year written warranty on the application and the product. That’s how confident they are that the Globalcote Roof Membrane Coating will outlast other conventional roof coatings on the market.

Are you Considering a Roof Restoration?

Before entering into a contract with a roof restoration company make sure you do your research first. There are a number of things to consider as the article below explains.

 

A roof restoration is a large investment in your home. Most qualified professional companies will stand behind the work they do by offering up to a 10year warranty on both the products used and workmanship.

 

Given that this is a large investment you may want to get 2 or 3 price comparisons. The information below will give you a guide on the questions to ask.

 

  • Is the Company fully licenced to carry out the work? Fully licenced companies will belong to professional associations like HIA, QBSA, or the MPA. When you contract a company who is registered you will have extra protection against faulty workmanship through the regulatory body QBSA.
  • The quality of the products used will determine the life of your new roof restoration. Ask your applicator for information on the products they recommend. Have they been tried and tested to withstand the harsh Australian Climate? Does the Company stand behind the products they use by offering a warranty?
  • Application is as important as the product itself. Incorrect application can void the paint manufacturers warranty. The roof surface needs to be prepared to the manufacturers specifications for product warranties to stand.
  • Does the Company employ trade, qualified professionals? The process of a roof restoration will require roof tiling work and painting. Ask if the Company uses trade qualified roof tilers and trade qualified painters.

 

There are a number of businesses in the market offering roof restoration services. When comparing quotes make sure you are comparing apples for apples. A quality restoration will stand the test of time.

 

JMZ Roof Restoration Brisbane recommend and only use Globalcote products manufactured specifically for the harsh Australian climate. We pride ourselves on our work and will not cut corners to save a dollar. Our products and workmanship is backed by a 10year warranty.
