Roof Spraying Service Revealed

Roof spraying helps protects the roof against leaks. Regular roof spraying is the best practice for homeowners and businesses. Roof spraying doesn’t have to be done often, just every few years, and it’s good to understand the issues. Hence it's recommend talking with one of the team at

Roof spraying is effective for all-round protection: Spraying ensures that microscopic leaks and intrusions to the interior roof are prevented. Water finds its own levels in roofs, too, and will exploit any opportunity to seep in. Roof repairs or roof restoration, if necessary, are the best options in cases where developing leaks are found.

Roof tiles need protection, too: Minor cracks or damage in roof tiles, even on a microscopic level, can be big trouble. Spraying the roof tiles protects them against further damage.

Looking at a new roof, it is notice that it looks a little shiny, but looks good. The overall look is consistent. Now look at an older roof: it looks patchy, with some areas looking in better condition than others. It’s possible to still see some of the new looks, but there are areas where the roof is clearly looking like it’s taking on more wear and tear.

These are the basic signs that roof spraying is required:

Discolouration: The roof surface has taken rain, debris, and sunlight which have caused the previous roof spray to deteriorate. In some cases, discolouration may be caused by birds or surface marks from storm damage. It’s best to get these problems checked out when getting the roof sprayed.

Spots on the roof: These are usually lichens, which have managed to penetrate the roof tile’s surface. This is quite common in older roofs. In these cases, the roof tiles haven’t been sprayed for some time, and desperately need a new spray job. Roof cleaning will also be required.

Terracotta tiles: Terracotta tiles are very good for spotting spray issues. Because these tiles are a lighter colour, any inconsistencies in the surface indicate that a new spray job is required.

Roof paint issues: If the roof paint is looking worse for wear and uneven, the surface has been compromised. Fortunately, roof paint also acts as a protective barrier for the roof, and these problems are likely to be minor as long as the roof doesn’t deteriorate further. If that happens it will need to repainted, as well as roof spraying.

Obviously, if there are existing surface problems with the roof, a roof spraying job should be done immediately. Otherwise, getting a spray job every five years is probably a good rule of thumb for scheduling roof spraying.

Over this period of time, it is inevitable that the roof surface will take some damage. Roof spraying seals the roof and prevents possible further damage simply and cost-effectively. In order to get a complimentary free and no obligation quote contact Roof Painting Palmerston North Pros at
