Painting your roof serves many purposes.
It’s a newer property trend that has several benefits for your home or business and as experts in roof painting Brisbane, our staff here at Homestyle Roof Painters are trained to use the latest materials and techniques.
If you’ve never considered painting your roof, this list of benefits should help you see why it’s such a great choice.
Lowers energy use
Roof painting started out as a cosmetic treatment to give a home or business a visual appeal that can be lacking with traditional roofing materials.
However, many people who made the choice began to notice that our Colorbond paint helped reduce their energy usage.
This isn’t true of all colours, but light ones, especially white, can help reflect up to 85% of the sun’s UV rays, reducing your expenditure on cooling your home.
Improves air quality
Our roofing experts also say that a painted roof can help lower the toxins in the atmosphere and reduce carbon emissions at the same time.
Some experts say that painting your roof white is equivalent to taking one car off the road for 11 years.
If you want a pleasing look, but also want one that’s eco-friendly, white roof paint is definitely a choice you should make.
This is one of the benefits that we always want homeowners to hear about when they’re considering roof painting in Brisbane.
Cools the building
As mentioned above, our white or other light shades of Colorbond roof paint helps reflect the sun’s rays, which is great for cooling your home or business during the hottest parts of the year.
By deflecting the sun from the top of the building, you keep it from getting hotter inside and that cuts back on your cooling needs, while also creating a comfortable environment for work and play.
Painting your roof might be great for your energy use and the environment, but it’s no secret that it also looks good.
A white roof is visually appealing and gives your home or business and clean, crisp look that looks great with whatever colour of exterior paint or finish your home or building has.
A light-coloured roof can be colour matched to your existing home colour, whether your property is brick, rendered or timber.
Let us professionally paint your roof and you’ll love the kerb appeal that it offers as much as you love saving money on your energy bills and the good feeling it gives you to do something great for the environment.
