Roof painting can make your home look stunning again and extend it's life up to 15 years.
Provided it is done correctly and with high quality products, such as the European leading roof paint - Isonit.

Every year thousands of Europeans love to maintain their homes and are proud to keep their roofs looking like new with Isonit roof paint.
Read on to find out what to look for if you're having your roof painted...
The simple truth about the roof painting scam
Roof painting can be a scam...but it is rare!
Assuming you have a good quality roof paint, such as Isonit, which has high UV stability and high end colour pigments to endure the relentless sun and weather exposure on a roof. Ensure your roof painter does the following:
- Cleaned and dried properly, stopping the paint from peeling off
- Uses a good biocide to kill off any algae and moss spores prior to painting
- Follows proper application guidelines such as... Read Roof Painting in Three Easy Steps here.
- Uses two coats of good quality roof paint
With the right roof paint and following simple guidelines you can have a brighter, healthier and longer lasting roof.

Roof painting is popular in Scandinavia and Europe
If roof painting is a scam, then nobody told those on the continent. They've been painting their roofs for decades, and a bright and clean roof is generally the norm over there. There's loads of roof painting companies enjoying decades of consistent work rejuvenating and protecting the old towns (and the new) all over France, Germany, Spain and up into Scandinavia.
In fact, the leading coatings manufacturer in Europe have risen to be market leaders partly because of their popular roof paint, ISOnit.
So why isn't it as popular in Britain?
It could have something to do with the fact that the industry got a bad reputation before it had a chance to take off. Too many people using bad products and not knowing how to apply them properly.
Things are changing though, and good roof painting is getting the reputation is deserves.
The factory applied coating on new tiles wears off
When they first built your tile roof, chances are it was protected by a coating. This was a near invisible layer that prevented weather and wind doing their worst. Until, of course, it wears off.
Once it's gone your roof is vulnerable to a build up of moss and algae, as well as the frost damage they provoke. This usually happens a decade or so into the roof's life.
A high quality roof paint replaces this, protecting your roof once again from water damage.
