Renew instead of replace!

 

Whether you own a home, condominium, industrial facility, school, church or hospital, there comes a time when it needs a facelift. We all have made a decision at one time or another to paint our house, change garage doors, replace a roof, add a bay window, redo the landscaping …etc. But in the southwest, when it comes to replacing a concrete roof tile, stop and think a moment!

Why replace your $15,000 roof just because it isn’t the right color or algae and lichen have discolored it. Concrete roof tiles get stronger with age and if properly sealed they can last a lifetime. Restoring a roof tile to its original color or changing it to an entirely different color is within the grasps of an owner through the products of Re-New-It Coatings and its refinishing process.

We offer 16 standard earth tone colors in our basic palette, a dozen special order colors and an infinite number of custom colors for the more discerning tastes. The coatings are made of 100% acrylic polymers and can retain their integrity as a binder for decades. The colors are derived from very durable metal oxide pigments and will retain their color for years to come.

This process was developed to refinish old concrete roof tile, clay tile and fiber cement tile. It has proven to be effective at enhancing the appearance of a roof and to be durable against a variety of environmental conditions. Sometimes, moss and algae which has built up over 10 years.  

In addition to enhancing appearance, a refinished roof can save energy by using a special made Coating and/or gloss topcoat, and is a much lower cost alternative to replacing a roof.  The refinishing process consists of the following five steps:

The first stepis for the homeowner and roof restoration specialist to evaluate the condition of the roof and to agree to specific remedies to fix fundamental problems, such as leaks or broken tiles. Then the roofing specialist must prepare the house for power washing the roof by protecting adjacent surfaces from runoff, staining or over spray. Polyfilm, masking tape, cardboard and gutter-guards maybe required in protecting adjacent areas.

The second step(If needed) is two power washing cycles at 4000 PSI with a biocide treatment in between. This is done to remove dirt, algae, efflorescence, corrupted slurry coat and other surface contaminants. 

After the first power washing, the roof tile is treated with bleach in those areas effected by mold, algae, lichen, moss, and other plant life. After allowing the bleach and sunlight to kill-off microbes, a second power washing is completed to remove any remaining contamination including residual bleach.  

The third step is to apply two penetrating binder coats that strengthen the upper surface of the tile and allow good adhesion of the subsequent color coats.  The first application at 0.2 gallon per square is usually absorbed quickly and may need to dry at least an hour before applying the second coat. These two coats are best allowed to dry overnight before continuing with application of the color coat. This polymer binder prevents subsequent coatings from peeling, blistering or removal by scuffing.

The fourth stepis application of a 100% pure acrylic color coat that contains a biocide to prevent unsightly organic growth. The color coat is applied to insure uniform color appearance and uniform film build. With sixteen colors available there is likely one that suits a homeowner’s taste. The application of two or more colors can be done to achieve a ‘flashed’ or multi-colored blend appearance. Special order colors and custom colors can be matched with a minimum order.

The fifth and final stepis the application of a single clear gloss topcoat. The topcoat is a hard 100% acrylic polymer coating, including a biocide to control unsightly organic growth, that increases the life of the finish nearly twofold and it gives a uniform gloss to the entire roof surface. A low sheen clear topcoat can be used which gives a softer lower gloss appearance.
