Tips for preserving your roof coating here.
Avoid Spending thousands of dollars replacing your roof.


Lots of New Zealanders find it easy to ignore their roofs and this leads to deterioration of the paint coating, and in time can lead to damage inside the structure supporting the roof. The majority of home and commercial building owners do not put much effort into roof maintenance which means in time the most important part of their structure tends to not only look bad but also start to have a detrimental effect on the internal components.
Keeping a roof clean and free of lichen, moss, oxidized paintwork and other debris means preventing corrosion, and this is a necessary roof maintenance procedure for all commercial building owners. As mentioned ignoring it becomes a bad habit and costly.
What they discover later is that neglecting the roof maintenance becomes problematic, to a point where the whole roof could need to be replaced versus just a recoat.

Modern Maintenance Products have been dealing with roof paint, roof maintenance, pool painting, and roof coatings for many years. We have always given New Zealanders advice on how to do roof maintenance and have been servicing this industry since 1993.

Avoid spending thousands of dollars replacing a new roof? By following the instructions below. This will save you money, and keep your commercial roof looking smart and tidy
Cleaning the Roof

This is the first and most crucial step to keeping your roof clean. Using a pressure washer remove all the moss and any debris that maybe on the roof. Do this when required
Inspect the roof

Inspect the roof to see if there are any cracks, broken tiles that may need to be fixed. If there is make sure that you fix the cracks before moving on to the next step. If you cannot fix the roof yourself make sure you get the professionals to do it for you. Never take chances with your safety.
Applying the roof coating

Once everything is checked, cleaned and prepared for painting ensure that the roof has to be 100% dry also. Moisture and condensation can impact on a roof coating bonding. Ensure you check the weather forecast so you can be sure that it will not be raining. We advise that you put on all the necessary safety wear and making sure the all areas are safe before you resume work.
