It is impossible to cover all decorating scenarios in a single document, so if you are in doubt about any aspect of your project please contact Resene for assistance.

Existing roofs in good condition simply need thorough washing with Resene Roof Wash and Paint Cleaner to remove chalking, dirt and salt deposits, followed by a good rinse with clean water. Remember to disconnect spoutings if rainwater is collected.
Consider using a Resene Cool Colour to minimise heat retention if selecting a dark colour.
Resene Moss & Mould Killer will be needed if there is any moss and mould present, often where trees overhang roofs. Lichens will need to be scraped off.
