As a homeowner, replacing a tile roof is usually a one time thing, but it’s never inexpensive. In fact replacing a tile roof is more expensive than most! Most expect that their tile roof will last 30-40 years, but many are finding that given the right circumstances, they are only getting 25 or so years from a tile roof. So is there a way to extend that life expectancy?
A new tile roof can cost you as much as $40,000 depending on the size of your home. That’s a lot of money. If you think that you can save that cost by switching to a different type of roofing material, check with your homeowner’s association. Many require that you have a tile roof. So what can you do to add some life to your roof, and save money? Have it painted with a Nutech Tile Roof Restoration System. It is an acrylic water based paint that is designed to seal the tile. It resists peeling, cracking, blistering and delaminating for a beautiful lasting finish. More importantly, it seals the pores of the tile to keep it looking cleaner, longer.
Nutech Tile Roof Restoration System is applied in a three step system. One Coat of Nutech Penetrating sealer followed by two coats of either Tileflex 2000 or NXT Cool Zone Infrared Heat Reflective Coating. The Cool Zone coating is a great choice. It has been shown to keep your home cooler in the summer time, 42°f – 50°f cooler compared with conventional roof paint. It does this by reflecting the sun’s heat as opposed to absorbing it. Nutech paints are available in over 36 colors, but again, check with your homeowner’s association to be sure you don’t choose the wrong one.
If you need to replace your tile roof, budget in some extra to treat it right away. Start off on the right foot for a longer roof life.
