Painting your roof isn’t something you want to be doing every couple of years. When you paint your roof, you want to be sure that the coat will continue to look great for many, many years, providing long-lasting protection of your roof. That’s why you can’t simply pick any brand of paint and hope for the best; you’ve got to go with a paint brand that has established a reputation for being durable.
Dulux is one of those brands that is considered at the top of their league. Their paint is designed to meet the standards of the harsh Aussie environment which includes blistering sunlight and heavy rainfall. So, exactly how long will your paint job last if you use Dulux?
The beauty of the Dulux brand is that all of their roof paints come with a 15-year warranty. This doesn’t mean that they only last 15 years – it means that, most of the time, they’ll last considerably longer. Some homes have coats of Dulux that are over 25 years old and still look great, considering the high exposure to extreme UV rays over the years.
The Dulux guarantee is that your roof paint won’t peel, flake or blister within 15 years of applying it. On the off-chance that you do experience flaking or peeling within 15 years, then Dulux will provide you with paint, free-of-charge, to apply to the affected areas.
Risk of using a cheaper paint brand
It’s tempting to cut costs wherever you can when it comes to renovations. However, your roof paint isn’t an area where it pays off in the long run. Cheap, no-brand or foreign paint brands may save you money short term. But without a lengthy warranty and a great reputation, you never know whether you’re going to have to reapply a coat of paint to your roof in a couple of years due to flaking and peeling.
Roof paint isn’t just there to make your roof look good: it protects the tile or steel from the elements. If your roof paint isn’t up to scratch, then the structural integrity of your roof will likely suffer as well.
Dulux is 100% quality acrylic, protecting your roof as well as looking fantastic. Always ask your roofer whether they’re using Dulux or a similarly high-quality roof paint when restoring or respraying your roof.
