Roof Painters Townsville

Your roof is an important part of your house, for obvious reasons. It keeps you safe from the sun and the rain. We all know this, but one of the ways you can help maintain it and keep it working as designed, is by painting it.

Yes, painting your roof not only makes your house stand out on Google Map’s satellite view, it can also protect you from the destructive advances of algae, lichen, and the big monster, mould.
 
Ok, algae, lichen and mould will never be movie villains you’ll see in the newest Marvel blockbuster movie, but they can do major damage to your roofing surface and structure.

When algae forms, it can discolour your roof, leaving ugly black streaks that lowers your property’s kerb appeal. And kerb appeal is a big factor in your property’s market value.

Those algae streaks also hint at something being wrong with your roofing structure, which again, if you are considering selling you house, lowers buyer’s confidence in your house being a good buy.
 
Lichen and algae are like sponges. They stick to the surface of your roof and suck in moisture, swelling up and becoming bigger and bigger. If they are found in between the cracks of your tiles, then as they draw in more moisture and continue to grow, they will break apart your tiles.
 
Also, because lichen and algae stick to your roofing surface, and because they draw in moisture so well, that moisture begins affecting the roof underneath.

​Water and wood, and water and metal, don’t mix well. Wood rots, and metal rusts, and both are things you don’t want happening on your roof. They both lead to leaks forming, meaning now the moisture has access inside your house.
 
Moisture also allows mould to form. This can be bad for people’s health as the mould spores can be inhaled into your lungs very easily. This affects those who have breathing issues and also skin irritations. Getting mould inside your house can lead to a sick household.
 
What painting your roof does is create a shield between the roof’s surface and that which might try and grow on it, including lichen, algae and mould. A roof’s paint job is expect to lost between 5 and 10 years, so if it’s been that long since you last had your roof painted, you should consider calling us to be your roof painting Townsville contractors.

Algae, mould and lichen prevention is just one reason for painting your roof. There are others. Just the fact that someone is up there, preparing the roof for painting means that any leaks and rust problems are more likely to be picked up before they grow and become expensive roofing repairs.
 
And we mentioned kerb appeal before. Whether it’s trying to hide over algae streaks or just because you have picked a great colour, a new roof paint job makes your house stand out  … and increased kerb appeal equals a higher property value.

And thirdly, did you know that the colour of your roof can help lower your energy costs? Everyone knows that wearing a black t-shirt in the middle of a hot Townsville summers day is not the best idea, unless you are really a fanatical goth. Black absorbs sunlight, while light colours reflect it. The same is true for roof paint. Light coloured roofs reflect sunlight, meaning the house inside will be cooler. A cooler house means less need for cranking the air-con up to 11 all day every day.

Knowing that the work we do on your roof will be able to be viewed for years into the future, makes us feel great responsibility for ensuring the work we do is of the best quality possible.
