From the What's New archive - April 2002...

Resene Crown Roof paintFrom the In response to popular demand, Resene have introduced a new value range of Crown branded acrylic roof paints designed to give a quick drying, durable, high-gloss finish on new primed or previously painted roofs. Crown Roof Paint is available in 16 standard colours chosen for the durability and colour fastness of their pigments. The Crown Roof range includes matches to the most popular COLORSTEEL® colours for trims, flashings, gutterings and repaints. For a wider range of roof colours see the Resene Hi-Glo colour chart.

Good surface preparation is critical to maximise the life of your roof paint system. Clean down all surfaces using Resene Roof and Metal Wash, a concentrated pre-treatment for all new and old unpainted galvanised roofing and a general cleaner for previously painted surfaces including roofing. Wash down with a copious amount of freshwater.

Roof Painting ExamplesPrime the substrate using:

  1. Resene Galvo One Galvanised Iron Primer is a fast drying, anti-corrosive primer that welds itself to new or old (even lightly corroded) galvanised iron, providing an ideal surface for topcoating. Resene Galvo One is also recommended for use over aluminium. Overcoat within three months of application.
  2. Resene Galvo-Prime Waterborne Galvanised Iron Primer is ideal for use on new galvanised iron or Zincalume. If the substrate is weathered, use only Resene Galvo One.
  3. Resene Rust-Arrest Anti-Corrosive Primer has been designed specifically for red rust problems.
  4. Resene Vinyl Etch Metal Primer is ideal for professional application to galvanised iron, aluminium roofs and sidings and all non-ferrous surfaces.

Use Resene Membrane Roofing Primer for all sheet rubber roofing systems and bituminous surfaces.

For heavy duty applications, Resene can supply a full range of specialist coatings. For further information call your local Resene ColorShop.

Handy tip:
A good rule-of-thumb for calculating the quantity of roof paint required is: your project's footprint area plus about 40% (allows for roof pitch, corrugations, soffit overhang, etc). Trough section roofing can require significantly more. Typically a complete roof paint system requires surface preparation using Resene Roof Wash and Paint Cleaner, one coat of primer and two coats of topcoat at the recommended coverage rate on the cans.
