MacAndrews are highly skilled Exterior Roof Coating experts and we approach your property and inspect your roof to a high standard to make sure your roof is in good order before they commence working on the property. We then follow on to preparation:
Step 1: Our team will protect your garden with tarpaulins to catch all the moss that is about to come off your roof. We then wash all the roof to bring the roof up to preparation for the coating, followed by an anti fungal wash to prevent grime from forming on your roof again. We then point all ridging and verges on the roof to make it watertight. After we have completed this, we clean all walls and windows of the property and your garden area to a high standard like we haven’t even made a mess on your property. This is your roof now prepared for coating.
Step 2: When we wash your roof our pressurised machinery takes a layer of concrete of the tile this is why it is essential to putting our water repellent rubberised coating on it to give it full potential which also makes the roof look brand new. We first change all broken tiles on the property and then follow on with two coats of our eco-friendly tile coat roof coating.
MacAndrews go the extra mile to leave your property to its full potential making your property your home again and leaving our customers pleased with the work.

MACANDREWS RENOVATIONS USES AN ECO-FRIENDLY ROOF COATING
Are you looking for ways to bring your roof tiles back to life? Your roof tiles have served you well over the years. However, as years go by, their colour fades, and they lose their vibrancy. The good news is that there’s a product that will bring back your roof tiles back to former beauty. And that’s where MacAndrews Renovations comes in.
We use a top class; water-based acrylic coating made especially for roof tiles. It provides a protective and decorative finish for both fibre cement and concrete roof tiles. Using the product will not only make your roof tiles look good once again, but will also extend their lifespan. The roof coating has been formulated to have excellent colour and durability properties.
It has ceramic spheres, which makes your roof tiles better insulators. Not only that but also has fungicide and algaecide, which make them better than other products on the market today.
The roof coating has been formulated to adhere to any porous surface, which makes it ideal for exterior fibre cement and concrete roof tiles. It can be applied by spray or brush. It is important to note that the roof coating might not adhere to clay tiles because of their nature. You should use clear roof coating for clay tiles instead.
The roof coating is not recommended to be used on painted surfaces, as well as low suction/high-density substrates that include glazed tiles, natural slate, engineering bricks, and glazed bricks.

EXTERIOR ROOF COATING FAQS
How long is the drying period for Roof Coating?
The surface of the roof tiles will dry within two to four hours. It depends on the porosity and temperature. The second coat must be applied four to six hours after the first coat has dried.
How do I prepare the surface before applying Roof Coating?
The first thing that we will do is to clean the roof. We will remove accumulated debris, moss, lichen, bird excrements, dirt, and other materials before applying the roof coating. We will also power wash the area to get rid of all contaminants. However, we will take care to make sure that the roof structure is not damaged when power washing. It is important that you replace damaged tiles before you apply the roof coating.
Do I need to apply fungicidal wash?
While the roof coating does have fungicide in its formula, it is still recommended to apply a fungicidal wash solution before the roof coating. It must be applied by brush to allow the solution to be absorbed by the substrate. After applying the solution, you should allow the roof to dry. Inspect the roof to make sure that there is no water trapped in between roof tiles.
