When is the right time to reapply roof coating

The right roof coating is essential if your goal is to protect the house from Australia’s

harsh climate, but it does more than just protect the house from rain, heat, and the

occasional bush fire. It can also reinforce the roof’s structure and prevents mould and

mildew from forming, which may eventually become a health hazard in the home.

Determining the right time to apply or reapply a coating on the roof isn’t as difficult as it

sounds. There are tell-tale signs that the roof seriously needs a recoating, and

homeowners should take note of these warnings or risk more costly restoration and

repair work.

When Leaks Become More than Just a Nuisance

Leaks are the most common roofing problem homeowners face, but it’s more than just a

nuisance that you can ignore or a put a pail underneath to address it. Even when the leak

isn’t as large, the damage it can do the roof, and the ceiling to an extent, is extensive. The

water can seriously damage wood and even concrete, and cause the structure of the roof

itself to weaken over time.

A collapsing roof isn’t such a rare occurrence, and it could be caused by something as

simple as a small leak that became large over time.

Apart from potentially ruining the structure of the roof and walls, leaks also make

conditions for mould and mildew more favourable. While mould itself doesn’t damage the

structure of the roof, it can spread throughout the entire home when it spores. Black mould,

in particular, apart from being toxic and extremely unsightly to look at, is even more

difficult and rather costly to remove than regular mould.

Once the leak has been taken care of, reapplying a roof coating will prevent it from

happening in the near future. Many roof coatings on the market are premium grade and

have very long service lifespans, which means more protection and less need for

reapplication.

Tired and Worn Roofs

Perhaps the simplest answer to ‘when should a roof coating be reapplied’ is when the roof

itself looks extremely tired and worn out. While most roofing types, such as tiled and metal

roofs have a very long lifespan, their appearance fades over time due to regular wear and

tear, as well as environmental damage.

Reapplying the right coating can immediately restore the appearance of the roof and has the

additional bonus of making it more resilient to damage and wearing down. The coating

itself is a good both insulate the house and keep it cool. It all depends on the colour of

course. Darker coatings are better during colder seasons as it absorbs heat better while

lighter coloured coatings are ideal to reduce heat during the summer months.

There isn’t really a ‘right’ time to reapply the coating of the roof as it ultimately depends on

the condition of the structure itself. Still, knowing the warning signs that the roof is in dire

need of recoating can help prevent more costly repair work in the future.
