It’s available in a wide range of colours including Resene paint matches to popular COLORSTEEL®/COLORBOND® colours plus a whole host of Resene colours.

Resene Summit Roof Semi-Gloss can also be tinted to a range of Resene CoolColour™ colours to help reflect heat keeping your place cooler. See the Resene Roof systems colour chart for popular roofing colours.

Suitable for use on roofs used for domestic water collection. Disconnect all downpipes before applying Resene roof paint. Reconnect downpipes after the first heavy showers have flushed away stabilising surfactants from the new paint film.

Remember, before you choose a Resene roof paint system, check the condition of your roof. Is it new, weathered or rusty? Details like these will help you get the right advice when you visit your local Resene ColorShop, and a better result when you come to paint.

Keep your place cooler with a Resene CoolColour™

Dark colours on areas, such as roofing, are suntraps soaking in the sun’s rays placing significant relentless stress on the coating and the substrate.

The unique formulations and materials of the Resene CoolColour range allows them to absorb visible light so they look like normal colours but simultaneously reflect a large proportion of the heat falling on them keeping surfaces cooler. In essence, the colours work by reflecting energy in the near and far infra-red region of the spectrum even though they absorb strongly in the visible region.

Using a Resene CoolColour more of the sun’s energy will be reflected and surface heat will build up slower and to a lower level than a ‘not so cool’ traditional colour. In hot summer conditions a Resene CoolColour will reduce stress on the coating and substrate and will help keep the roof temperature down.

Resene CoolColour technology performs optimally on dark colours that are the most prone to heat build-up, which makes them ideally suited for dark roofing colours.

See colours marked ‘cc’ on Resene colour charts.

Available in a wide range of Resene exterior products and colours, including Resene Summit Roof Semi-Gloss CoolColour.
