frequently asked questions about Roof Painting

1.How long will it take to paint my roof?

Depending on the style of roof you have, type of service you have chosen, size of your roof and weather conditions, it can take between 1-3 days to prepare, paint and complete.

2.Do I need to do anything before the technicians arrive?

Yes, we suggest you move any vehicles, outdoor furniture or other items out of the way to allow the technicians to access the roof easily and to minimize any water damage or overspray from the pressure washing and painting process. If you have pets or young children, it is a good idea to keep them inside or in a separate area.

3.Can the painter spray around solar panels?

Yes, our technicians take every care to minimize overspray to solar panels, pool heaters, air conditioning units, and chimneys. These areas are “cut in” with a brush about 300mm from the area to minimize any possible overspray. If there is still a change of overspray the technicians will cover these areas with protective drop sheets.

4.What if we use tank water at home, can the painting pollute our drinking water?

No. Our technicians use a pre-painting checklist that includes ensuring all tank in-flows and guttering is diverted away from water catchments and tanks before starting the job. Roof Painting only uses paints that are suitable for use on roofs that are drinking water catchments.

5.Do I need to be at home when obtaining a quote for painting my roof?

Roof Painting uses state-of-the-art aerial imaging software and quoting programs to provide accurate information to our customers without the need for a technician to visit on-site. Our sales team will call you to find out as much about your roof and property as possible to ascertain the best approach for restoration. You will then be sent a quote within 48 hours of your request.

6.If I want to go ahead with my quote, what do I need to do?

Simply sign and return your quote via email or post to ensure your job is scheduled as soon as possible. One of our technicians will be in touch with you to arrange a date and time to complete your roof restoration job. Of course, you can ring our sales team at any time to talk more about the process.

7.Do you require a deposit?

No, just sign and return the quote. An invoice will be sent to you at the completion of your job in which we ask that you make payment within 7 days.
