The eco-friendly home has quickly become something we all aspire to have, and with clean, renewable energy available with solar panels, it is possible to reduce your impact on the environment in many ways. Apart from the obvious shelter and protection, your roof can also play a part in energy conservation by having it coated with a special sealant.
This is the most effective method to seal a roof, as the substance penetrates deep into the surface, and with a curing time of 48 hours, it provides the ideal foundation for the topcoat. There is a short oil version available, which is much cheaper but does not give the same results in terms of providing a good seal, and at Permacoat, we have been treating roofs in the Perth area for many years, and we believe the job should be done properly the first time.
Sealing and coating a roof are two separate things, and at Permacoat, we have different teams for each process. The team that seals your roof will not be the same team that applies the two top coats, and this adds a level of quality control, as the coating team will thoroughly inspect the sealant before commencing work. Some companies might tell you it is OK to apply a single topcoat, but we guarantee our roof coating for 20 years, so we insist on two top coats after the sealer has cured.
Sealing and coating your roof will significantly reduce the exterior temperature, which keeps your home cooler in the summer, and in the colder months, the roof insulation will help to retain the heat.
At Permacoat, we also specialise in repairing existing roofs, and if the damage is not too great, we would recommend restoration, and with an extensive supply of existing roof tiles, we can match most existing roofs. If you haven’t had your roof inspected for a while and would like to know if it is in good condition, contact us today, and we’d be happy to give you a full assessment of your roof’s condition.
If the roof is badly damaged, we are able to repair and replace any missing tiles with matching ones, and if you wish to have a different colour, we can replace the entire roof with modern materials that will last for many years. There are more than 30 different shades to choose from, which means you can change the character of your home by selecting a unique shade for the roof.
Having your roof sealed and coated will protect your home for many years, and with our expertise, we are happy to issue a 20 year warranty on all our work. Your home is probably the biggest single investment you will ever make, so it makes sense to keep the structure well maintained, as this will add value to the property and your investment will grow.
