All roofing materials have limited lifespans (like any products). This can be reduced by harsh sunshine and climatic conditions. Organic growth such as moss and lichen can also contribute towards the deterioration which also leaves you with an unattractive roof. By restoring your roof with Nutech Paint you give your home the look it deserves, greatly reduce heat absorption during warmer weather and extend the life considerably. It can also significantly improve the value of your home, first impressions count and the roof can make up 30% of your façade, it can be a worthwhile investment.
With the correct Nutech primer nearly any roof surface can be restored including concrete/cement tiles, clay/terracotta tiles (check out our blog on “can you paint terracotta tiles”), fibre cement sheet and tiles, coated and non-coated metal sheets, asphalt shingles etc. If the surface is in a very poor condition or there is underlying damage, then replacement may be required and your Nutech roofing professional will advise you as to the condition of your roof. If there is a lot of damage on and under you roof, reroofing may be a better option, check out our page on reroofing here.
Invariably yes; different primers carry out different functions. High build primers for rough weatherd roof surfaces give more consistent and durable finish. Adhesion promoted primers ensure paint doesn’t peel from smooth surfaces like clay, and penetrating primers soak into powdery and fibrous surface to bond the surface ready for the top coating system.
A primer and topcoat are different coatings so cannot by definition be the same. Nutech Paint Roof Professional applicators always apply a specialist primer suited to your surface which is then followed by two topcoats to give three independent coats.
That will depend upon factors such as size, roof condition and critically, the weather conditions. If repointing work is needed, pointing must be fully dry before coating, never on the same day, and each coat must be fully dry before the next one is applied. In ideal weather conditions, a coat may dry within 30minutes, but longer when it is cooler or more humid.
The removal of accumulated dirt, moss etc. can be a little messy, at SmartFix Roofing we use a new softwash system , so water and dirt is no longer blasted from the roof, ensuring a better overall clean. Your Nutech Roofing Professional will minimize any inconvenience and your home will be left as clean as it was before the job.
Nutech Paint carries up to 12 year manufacturer’s warranty on the coatings (depending on product). Beware of companies only offering their own warranty. If it is not backed by the coating manufacturer it is not a valid product warranty and may well be illegal.

Concrete roof tiles are made from selected concrete, sand and pigments. They are cheaper option than Terracotta, but still of high quality. Concrete tiles are known to strengthen over time and they don’t rust and corrode so are a great option for Australian weather conditions. The main difference between concrete & terracotta tiles is that concrete tiles are painted, so just like any painting on a house, it fades gradually over time.
Terracotta roof tiles are made from naturally mined clay. Terracotta roof tiles are a kiln fired at extremely high temperatures, so the colour is baked in, meaning their colour doesn’t fade. The fired-in colour of Terracotta roof tiles will never fade and their vitreous coating makes them impervious to moisture, harsh UV rays and corrosive airborne pollutants.
We partner only with leading Australian Tile Manufacturers. So all our tiles are guaranteed as per the manufacturers warranty. Depending on the roof tile you pick, depends upon the warranty, which can be found on the Manufacturers website.
