How Long Does A Painted Roof Last?

September 20th, 2023|

Paint is no different to any other product. The good-quality stuff looks great and lasts a long time, and the cheap stuff looks crap and lasts much less. The great thing about good-quality paints is that they often come with a warranty. Even if the paint flakes out before the warranty, it’ll be fully covered and replaced by the manufacturer.

The Environmental Benefits of Roof Restoration

May 18th, 2023|

By saving and recycling your current tiles, you’re using less of the Earth’s resources. Roof tiles are made of concrete, terracotta, asphalt or slate, which are all resources that come from the earth. The cement industry, for example, contributes to around 8% of global carbon emissions – a huge contributor to greenhouses gases and climate change. When you restore your roof, rather than replace it with new tiles, you’re helping to spare more resources from being used, and more emissions from being released into the atmosphere.
