What is a roof coating?

A roof coating is a cost-effective alternative to a new roof. Different types of roof paint provide various benefits but all of them will give a protective layer to your existing roof tiles and other elements.

Types of coatings.


RENOTEC is a popular roof spray coating. It is a two-coat system and comes in a wide range of roof coating colours. It is designed with hydrophobic capabilities to increase the waterproofing of the roof while also adding an extra layer of insulation.


This is a popular clear roof tile paint. It uses nano-technology and is super hydrophobic to create a highly water-repellant roof coating. If you love your slate grey or clay roof tiles, they will still be visible and the coating is breathabl

Cork roof spray painting

Many homeowners and businesses are looking for more sustainable eco-friendly options when they update their property. Cork roof paints are designed to seal a variety of roof types while adding UV protection, insulation, weather resistance, and sound resistance to your roof coating.

Liquid rubber roof coating

This type of protective roof coating is suitable for flat roofs and provides a full waterproofed rubber coating with added insulation and the ability to repair gaps around roof accessories, such as skylights and chimneys

Why do I need roof painting

Why do I need roof painting?

Roofs generally last a long time. 20-25 years on average. However, they are subject to continuous weathering, which can cause damage. Rain, sleet, hail, snow, and blistering sun mean that the concrete roof tiles or other roofing materials are subject to a constantly changing barrage of moisture, wind, cold, heat, and UV rays. Roof tile painting can help to protect your roof and prevent it from getting damaged.

Moisture and roof tiles

Moisture is one of the leading causes of problems with roof structure. Roofing materials are generally porous. This includes slate, concrete tiles, asphalt, and more. When it rains, moisture is absorbed into these pores.

This usually isn't an issue because the moisture will evaporate again. But in some situations, it can cause problems.

If there are gaps in the roofing membrane, for example, and moisture can seep into the structure of the building beneath, it can get trapped. Over time, it will start to degrade the materials holding up the roof, such as timber.

The freeze-thaw process can also cause problems. When the temperature is cold enough for the absorbed moisture to freeze, it will expand. This can create cracks in the roof tiles and other materials. When the ice thaws, moisture absorbs into these cracks and can reach the roofing structure below.

Organic growth

Moisture can cause other secondary issues. It creates the perfect breeding ground for mould, lichen, and algae growth.

This creates a twofold problem (beyond the unpleasant appearance). First, the growth will trap moisture within it. This can lead to further degradation of the roofing materials.

Second, the roots of the growth can work their way into the roof, creating cracks and gaps. This will weaken the roof and, again, can lead to more moisture getting in.

UV damage

UV damage is particularly a problem for asphalt shingles. The sun can dry the shingles out, making them brittle and prone to damage and cracks. The UV rays themselves can cause chemical changes within the asphalt that break them down on a molecular level, causing them to lose their protective properties.

Roof painting can have a range of benefits that could help to extend the life of your roof, increase the curb appeal by making your roof more attractive, and repair small amounts of damage.

Spray-on roof tile painting will work its way into small cracks and holes and seal them. This will help to make your roof water-resistant again and protect its internal structure.

Some of the benefits of roof paint are:

  • fills in small leaks
  • creates a seamless membrane over an existing roof
  • provides an added layer of insulation, which could help lower your heating costs
  • restores the roof's waterproofing capabilities
  • protects against weathering and the freeze-thaw cycle
  • can provide an updated appearance in a range of popular colours
  • a cost-effective and much quicker solution than installing a new roof
  • increases the durability and lifespan of the roof

How a new roof coating is applied

How a new roof coating is applied

Applying a paint coating to a roof needs to be done by a professional company. Any work at height will need clear risk assessments and a health and safety-compliant plan in place.

Before the specially formulated spray-on roof coating is applied, the roof needs to be inspected. In particular, the insulation beneath has to be examined to see how saturated with water it is. There is only so far that a new roof coating can go to protect a roof. If the roof is so damaged that the insulation is more than 25% saturated, then it is likely that the roof will need to be replaced.

If your roof is determined to be in good enough condition, then we can go ahead with the paint coating.

How we can help

Our experienced and highly qualified team in Addison will assess the condition of your old roof to ensure that it is eligible for a new coating to be applied. If repairs need to be made, we will discuss these services with you.

Step 1 - roof cleaning

Getting your roof professionally cleaned is an important first step before applying any coating. The surface of the roof needs to be clear of any dirt, debris, and plant growth.

The first step of having your roof cleaned will be to remove any moss, mildew, lichen, or mould. Then, the roof needs to be power washed to remove any other dirt or contaminants.

If the roof spray is applied without doing this roof cleaning, then it won't adhere to the surface as well and won't provide the protective capabilities that it should.

How we can help

When our Addison team visits your property, they will assess what type of cleaning and repairs may need to be made before the roof coating is applied.

Step 2 - applying the roof coatings

There are several methods to apply roof coatings, depending on the type of roof paint used. Many will have the option of being applied using a roller or as a spray.

There are pluses and minuses to both. With a roller, it is easier to work the paint deep into the porous surface which can create better adhesion.

Roof spraying, on the other hand, is a quicker process and it creates a more uniform look. This is less of an issue if you are applying clear roof coatings but for coloured roof paint, getting the finish perfect is important.

Spraying on roof coatings will also allow you to get into the little nooks and crannies of the roof more easily. This could be gaps around pipes, chimneys, gutters, skylights, vents, and more. Making sure that all of these gaps are sealed can make a big difference to the durability of your roof painting and the benefits it can give you.

How we can help

We will discuss the best type of roof coating for your roof, depending on the style of the roof, the roof tile type, and whether you want to transform your roof's look or keep it the same. Then our highly-skilled team will apply the coating to create a seamless, protective finish.

frequently asked questions

What types of roofs can be coated or sprayed?

In the UK, roof coating and spraying can be applied to a variety of roof types, including asphalt, metal, concrete, and clay tiles. However, the suitability depends on the condition and material of the roof, as some older or damaged roofs may not be ideal candidates for coating or spraying.

How long does a roof coating or spray treatment last?

In the UK, a professionally applied roof coating or spray treatment typically lasts between 10 to 15 years, depending on the quality of the materials used and the prevailing weather conditions. Regular maintenance can extend the lifespan of the coating.

Can roof coating or spraying prevent leaks?

Roof coating and spraying can provide a degree of leak prevention by sealing small cracks and gaps, but they are not a complete solution for significant roofing issues. In the UK, it's recommended to address any underlying structural problems before applying a coating or spray for optimal effectiveness.

Can roof coating or spraying improve energy efficiency?

In the UK, certain roof coatings are designed to reflect more sunlight, thereby reducing the amount of heat absorbed by the roof. This can lead to improved energy efficiency, as it can help keep buildings cooler in summer, reducing the need for air conditioning. However, the overall impact on energy efficiency will vary depending on the specific product and the property's characteristics.
