Roof Painting is a great way to improve the visual appearance of your home or building. In some cases it can also increase the longevity of the underlining roof material.
There are many different types of roofs that can be painted; concrete tile roofs, Colorbond roof painting and many different varieties of metal roofs. Some roof types are not applicable to painting such as terracotta, thatched or asbestos roofs.
There are a large variety of roof paints available on the market however Dulux, Regent and Nutech are the most common in Melbourne. The quality and warranty provided by different manufactures vary but the Dulux and Regent products we advocate for are considered the best.
Roof Paints are generally water based and come in a 3 coat (“3 stage membrane”) system. The type of roof you have will determine the product that is used but they all consist of at least an undercoat (sealer/primer) followed by two top coats. There are specialist equipment and skills required to paint a roof which generally pushes the process beyond a handy DIY’er.
Painting a metal or Colorbond roof can in some cases increase the longevity of the roof material especially where the elements, trees or branches have damaged the original roof coating. Whether or not your roof would gain from roof painting greatly depends on the type and condition of your roofing material.

Roof Painting in Melbourne is much like painting anything: It is all in the preparation work. This is particularly true for roofs which get exposed to all the elements and pollution, including moss and lichen.
Special care and knowledge is required when preparing a roof for roof painting Melbourne. The first step we take when working on a roof is to engineer the job to be performed safely. Not only does this protect us from falls it is also a requirement by WorkSafe, and ensures the job runs smoothly.
Once the safety systems are established, we thoroughly inspect the roof to ensure it is sound – this could involve replacing damaged tiles or sheets, replacing flashing, replacing rusty roof screws etc. before we use a pressure washing machine to clean the roof. Once the roof is thoroughly clean, we then tape off and mask all parts of the roof and adjoining areas not to be painted. This is a painstaking task but needs to be completed correctly to avoid over-spraying on cladding, bricks, gutters or other parts of the building not intended on being painted.
If the roof is clean and once everything is taped up, it is time to apply the undercoat. There are certain climatic conditions that must be adhered to when applying roof painting Melbourne. Failure to stick to these guidelines will shorten the lifespan of the product. It is for this reason we will not paint during the cooler months.
Application of the paint is done through an airless sprayer – these vary in quality and cost from a few hundred dollars to many thousands. Just like painting a car, there is a particular well-tuned skill set required to apply roof paint. We at Casey Roof Care use quality built airless sprayers operated by a trade qualified professional with many years experience painting roofs in Melbourne.
Many of you would’ve seen the advertisements for cheap roof painting around Melbourne. Be very wary of such offers, like anything in life you generally get what you pay for. You can read more about this in our articles section of the website. And again, please do not have your roof painted in winter.
Want to say these guys are professional, friendly and very affordable. They did an amazing job of our roof and would highly reccommend them to anyone. Thanks Adam and Dylan you guys were awsome
We recently had the pleasure of working with Casey Roof Care who replaced our entire roof on our late Edwardian home. Adam and his team were extremely efficient and professional, installing our new colour bond roof with the highest levels of workmanship. We are thrilled with the result and would highly recommend Adam and the Casey Roof Care team to you if you are considering the restoration or replacement of your roof
I am in Blackburn and am absolutely delighted with the results of the effort Casey Roof Care put into our roof. They cleaned and restored our terracotta roof and replaced rusting guttering over 5 days, cleaning up after themselves every day and leaving our yard as they found it when they left. The roof now looks brand new. Their professional attitude, competitive rates, excellent workmanship, outstanding communication skills and general friendliness make them a team I would recommend without a second thought. Thank you again.
You will not find a company as genuine, warm, knowledgable and professional as Adam and Dylan from Casey Roof Care!! After numerous intial quotes (including a company who simply drove past and didn’t even bother to talk to us face to face before rejecting the job via text message ,despite leaving us waiting 45minutes for him to show up) Adam and Dylan, not only reassured us with their exceptional customer service skills, but met us multiple times to discuss our options before we made a decsion to go with them. Taking into consideration the complexity of the job, they still came in well under what other company’s had quoted us (and they also included options that the other company’s did not offer in their quotes) The guys really rose to the challenge doing this job, despite all the obstacles they overcame, we are absolutely thrilled with the quality of the finished job. Before even completing the job, our neighbours also asked for them to quote for their house too, proof that their work is exceptional before its even completely done!! We would not hesitate to reccomend Casey Roof Care to anyone.. whether the job is big or small. Thanks very much Adam & Dylan
Several years ago, our family moved into our house in Berwick (which was four years old at the time). The whole time we had experienced issues with poor quality brittle tiles which constantly allowed water into the ceiling. Fast forward to a month ago and we decided enough is enough – the roof must go.
We have always wanted a Colorbond roof so we set about finding a company with a good reputation and proven experience in this field. My wife and I must have researched at least a dozen different companies on the Internet. In the end we chose Casey Roof Care as they have demonstrated experience in this conversion work, they are local to where we live. Being a small team we knew they would care and reputation would be important.
Adam provided a very reasonable quote to replace the roof, guttering and down pipes with Colorbond. Adam proved to be very knowledgable in providing advice and information on how the process worked. We knew we had found the man for the job.
The work took Adams team about 2.5 weeks to complete. The process was completely stress free from our point of view. The first step involves erecting scaffolding around the house and removing the existing gutters and down pipes (we decided to do this as the originals were too worn and would not match). Adams team then replace the roof in sections by removing tiles, install reinforcing metal batons (required for these conversions), insulation and finally the Colorbond roof. In the event any roof is exposed to the elements overnight, a tarpaulin is used to ensure no water gets in. As each bin is filled with the tiles they are removed from the site.
Under the Colorbond roofing, Adams team installed CSR 60mm Anticon insulation (including an outer foil layer to prevent condensation). The product does a great job at keeping the heat in (we noticed the difference immediately) but it also cuts down some of the outside noise.
The job obviously creates a mess around the property – that’s the nature of this type of work. I must say Adams team did a great job not only of completely cleaning up afterwards, they also run a metal detector over the lawn for extra piece of mind. We have never found even a single scenic of debris around the property.
At the end of the job it was clear how much pride Adam had in the work his team completed. What really strikes you about Adam is his honesty and genuine interest in putting his customers first. He always made himself available to answer questions during the quotation process and even visited the house multiple times to discuss the work in person. An added bonus was Adam advising us on unrelated issues including the insufficient ceiling insulation that was pre-existing in the roof.
Overall Casey Roof Care performed a very professional job at a competitive price using only quality products. We strongly recommend them as a trustworthy company to engage. This has been one of the best experiences we have had with any trades people and we get to reap the benefits for years to come. We love the work they have done – it looks great and we LOVE the sound the rain makes too :>).
