- Dark coloured roofs can fade quicker than lighter coloured roofs
The sun can cause your roof colour to fade
While we are fortunate to experience an abundance of sunshine living in Bunbury and the South West, there is no denying the intensity of the sun. The suns harsh UV ray can be damaging to all surfaces and your roof is exposed to these every day. Over time, the sun will fade the colour of your roof however other factors can make this occur more rapidly. The greater the range in temperature extremes where you live, the more amount of stress on the coating system. This can in turn cause the paint to fade quicker than expected.
High quality roofing products will help to restore your roof colour
When it comes to your roof, quality is always best. Using only the highest quality products will help to minimise the risk of premature fading. Dulux AcraTex Roof Membrane is a high build, pigmented, water based, 100% acrylic coating. It features a protective membrane and is designed to be applied to suitably prepared metal or concrete roofs in need of restoration.
Dark coloured roofs can fade quicker than lighter coloured roofs
When it comes to your roof colour, darker colours tend to absorb more heat ad UV radiation resulting in greater stress on the pigments in the coating resulting in quicker fading. To help minimise premature fading, consider choosing a lighter colour which tends to absorb less heat and UV radiation.
