What does painting a roof involve?
If you don’t know very much about painting a roof, you may assume it just involves cracking open a tin of paint, grabbing a brush and going for it. But there is actually far more involved in painting a roof than just the painting part. So beware of people who quote very low prices, as you may—literally—just be getting a coat of paint!
Cleaning your roof
Before we can paint your roof, we will need to clean it with a high-pressure machine. Much like when you repaint the interior walls of your house or a piece of furniture, you always clean the surfaces first (and even do some light sanding) to ensure the best results. The same principle applies to roof painting. There’s no point in painting a roof if it isn’t clean first.
Repairing your roof
Sometimes you may have cracked or broken tiles on your roof—or other damage to your roof—that should be fixed before painting. After all, there’s not much point trying to make your roof look new by painting it, but ignoring damage. If you’re going to paint, you may as well fix your roof too and do it all in one go.

What factors will affect my roof painting cost?
There is no flat fee for roof painting, as every job is different. But there are some common factors that will play a big role in determining your final cost.
These include the:
- size of your roof
- condition of your roof.
How big is your roof?
The size of your roof is obviously a very important factor when calculating a roof painting cost. Quite simply, if your roof is large, we’ll need more of our products to do the job.
What condition is your roof in?
If your roof is damaged, then you’ll likely want it repaired before painting. The amount of damage to your roof will affect your overall roof painting cost.
