Painting Preparation:

TILE ROOFS & IRON ROOFS

First ensure all required roof repairs are done prior to painting. Hydro-wash & clean the roof sections. Use a quality roof acrylic paint. Various colours are available. Always use the manufactured standard colours for roof painting. It is not recommended to use a base & tinting colour selection due to the effect of UV rays on the roof surfaces.

BARGE BOARDS & FASCIA BOARDS

Ensure that the supporting timber is sound. Check for dry rot & deterioration especially by over due or un-treated sections. On existing materials remove any loose chips & flakes. Sandpaper as needed & clean surfaces. Always use a high quality acrylic paint.

 

GUTTERS, DOWN PIPES & FLASHINGS

When repainting gutters always clean & flush the inside of the gutters first. Check for deterioration. Any rust must be addressed. If needed & accessible re-coat the inside of the gutters. Check all joints, stop ends & outlets for leaks. Repair or replace as needed before painting. Downpipes should also be checked & flushed prior to painting.

CLADDING & CLOSURES

Only use high quality acrylic paint.

TORCH ON

The roofs should be serviced & coated regularly with a high quality reflective coating. The surfaces checked, repaired if needed & properly cleaned. Paint surfaces with bitumen based aluminium reflective paint. This protects the waterproofing from drying out & cracking.

Whatever the surface or structure that is to be treated or painted; Keep in mind the most important part is the cleaning & preparation prior to painting.

Barge-Boards & Fascia-Boards

There are a variety of different kinds of barge boards & facia boards.

The timber barge & facia boards require regular treatment to ensure long life.
The different timber types also determine life expectancy & appearance.


SA Pine (Most widely used)
Will also deteriorate quickly if not treated & it experiences prolonged wet conditions.

Saligna
Excellent timber. (When available)
Also needs to be treated.

Marantee
Depending on the individual preference & cost factors.
Is mostly available.
Needs to be treated.

Fibre-cement barge & fascia boards.
Fibre-cement facia-boards are durable, can be painted & available in 3.000 meter and 3.600 meter lengths.

These can & are also used as barge-boards.
Alternately the fibre-cement L-shaped sm barge-boards would be a better choice as the additional top lip provides better protection for the supporting timbers.
These are available in 3.000 meter lengths.

A variety of plastic or metal products are also available.

 

Basic Gutter Types: 
• Square gutters 
• Half round gutters 
• OG mould gutters 
• Plastic (PVC) gutters


Down pipes offsets & shoe: 
• Square down pipes
• Round down pipes
• Moulded down pipes
• Plastic down pipes 

Gutters should be cleaned on a regular basis. Avoid accumulation of debris in the gutters. This will prevent premature deterioration & rusting. Existing gutters should be checked for leaks at the joints outlets & stop-ends. It is essential to clean & prepare gutters before painting. New gutters have to be etched & prepared before painting. Good quality acrylic paint is recommended for the gutters & down pipes.

INDUSTRIAL GUTTERS:

Areas with high volume of water out flow should utilize the larger industrial gutters. Gutter guards can also be fitted.

BOX GUTTERS:

It is imperative that the size of the box gutter is sufficient for the designed area of flow. Consideration must be exercised for extreme as well as normal conditions. The gutter must be able to cope with heavy downpours & hail. At times it is necessary to fit hail guards. The gutters must be kept clean & free of any debris. Ensure that the surface has a sufficient slope & is coated adequately
These points apply equally to normal & industrial gutters and down pipes.

FLASHINGS:

Flashings should fit properly & be secured adequately. Flashings are an important part of insuring the roof waterproof. Purpose designed & installed flashings are always recommended. Well designed flashings can be incorporated & form part of the fascia or barge finishes.

 

Always use sheet-metal under flashings. They can be resealed with acrylics. The acrylics should not replace the sheet-metal under flashings or be used to seal over tiles instead of fitting proper under flashings.
