It’s a penetrative sealer for oxidised tiles, others are acrylic, anti-corrosive, primers and heat reflective. And we are talking about paint here. Every house has a basic shape and to most eyes, that is as a far as their knowledge of it goes. If someone asks about roofs, the general response is tiles and colours, clay maybe or how some ancient civilisations lived on the roofs, trading, sewing, mingling and having tea. For most, it’s a slant, a protection against the tempestuous winds and if you’re in that particular state down under, the four-seasons-a-day kind of weather 24/7.

But back to the whole painting thing first. Is a semi-gloss finish the best? Or would a heat reflective metallic sheen be the one? It is a challenging task if one was to fix their own roofs themselves in case reparations are required. This is exactly why one should consult an expert. In this case: a roof tiler who knows all about roof painting, of course! Roof tilers have been trained, have the experience and knows exactly what’s best. How to apply the paint, the training required and even the research has already been done. Usually one doesn’t know if their roofs are even powdery oxidised tiles, porous or simple bare concrete tiles. These experts know exactly what needs to be done.

Tilers’ jobs are similar to roofing contractors in that they inspect and scrutinise any drawing plans, specifications and the detailing of any work sites to determine what kind materials and equipment is required and what is best and efficient for the job. They assess the risk, which a homeowner would most likely overlook in the grounds of hurried reparations. This of course, is never the case with the professionals.

Irregular roofs, regular roofs, you throw at them and they know exactly what needs to be done. Given, of course, that their businesses, whether they be self-employed or under a construction firm that hires a number, are legal and approved by the commissioning office. Either way, it is always recommended to ask for their business license. Cheap jobs are not worth the risks.

To roof tiling, some homeowners do like to have roofs restored back to their former glory and this work usually takes around three-five days, depending on the size and style or your roofs. Roof tiling is an important work that not only appeals to the aesthetic of your home, but also to the security of those who live under it.

Again, this is where licenses come in as something very necessary as either construction, reparation or renovation tasks requires quality of service that does not compromise the safety of anyone living in any home or building. Each contractor, by law, is required to obtain a license that ensures quality to the prescribed and best of standards.
