Iron Roof Restorations

The main problems that occur with iron roofs are that they fade over a period of time and can become powdery in appearance, moss grows on the roof staining the sheets and the tech screws become rusted.

By cleaning and applying the correct coatings the roof can be given new life and will look fantastic again for many years.

Colour coats are applied by a spray machine.

  • Undercoat applied which is either a primer or metal primer depending on the surface
  • Two top colour coats applied in the matt finish. With a choice of 36 colours this is often the hardest decision
  • The product is fade resistant & durable
  • A matt finish on irons roofs is applied as it ages well and prevents the showing up of imperfections on the irons sheets as in rough spots compared to shiny areas
