Can you paint a Glazed Terracotta Roof Tile? This is often the question we are asked. Whilst previously the answer would have been no, recent technology has now provided homeowners with a positive outcome.

Previously applicators would carry out the same process with the terracotta tile than they would with the cement tile, the problem was that the adhesion required to a glazed terracotta tile was much different than the cement tile process.

Customers would find that within a few years after application the problems would begin. The coating simply just wouldn’t stick and the peeling process would commence, providing an unsightly roof for years to come, leaving the homeowner with a more than sour taste every time they would look that their property.

Rest assured that Roofline has been restoring  and repainting terracotta glazed tiles for over 10 years now, successfully with a formulation designed specifically to adhere to that of the glaze. Where others had failed and wouldn’t dare attempt, we have the solution.

It lies in the application of the sealer, a specific glass based terracotta sealer that bonds with the glaze permanently, to provide a safe base for the colour to be applied. Once the roof is professionally cleaned and the repairs undertaken, the roof painting process begins.

Firstly with the ever important sealer. It is a glass based sealer, also used as a base for painting onto glass. This must be applied and let to cure for two days before the other coats are applied.

Once the curing period is over, another sealer is applied followed by two colour coats of the roof membrane.  Dramatically transforming the old orange terracotta roof into a shining modern new roof. Often popular with people doing  a large scale makeover, perhaps rendering the walls and the orange roof colour just won’t work with the new colour scheme.

At a fraction of the replacement cost it is a cost effective solution to get the roof you need, without replacing. Roofline guarantees the quality and coating of your terracotta roof, providing roof restoration for close to 20 years through out Sydney.
