Colorbond® and other factory pre-finished steel products
Painting, Colour change and re-bonding of new colours
STEP 1: SET UP
Protecting the environment along with the safety of our workers is paramount. In order to protect the environment we divert the down pipes to protect storm water run off. Any over hanging trees will also need to be trimmed back.
STEP 2: STRIPPER
This step is only applicable if the surface coating is delaminating and peeling. The surface will have “white looking” strips running the length of the sheets. The stripper is specially formulated to remove the degraded material only and is applied to the roof using a low pressure pump. This is not a standard paint stripper. To learn more about the stripper follow this link.
STEP 3: WATER BLAST
To thoroughly clean the roof surface a powerful water blast is required. The pressure required is approx 5000 psi. This contrasts with the standard for a concrete tile roof clean of 3000 psi. This will remove any dirt and contamination deposits on your roof.
STEP 4: PRIMER
If the roof has been stripped it will require a primer to adhere the top coat to the roof sheeting. This product is designed to bite into the roof sheeting and the top coat will adhere to the primer.
STEP 5: TOP COAT
Two coats of the acrylic top coat are applied to the roof. The first coat is generally applied across the roof perpendicular to the corrugation. The final coat is applied parallel to the corrugation.
STEP 6: RELAX
Sit back and relax knowing that Restyle has done the job that we quoted at a fixed price and cleaned up after ourselves before we left.

The Colorbond restoration process will vary depending on the reason for the restoration of the colour coating.
If the colour has faded, uniformly or unevenly, then steps 2 and 5 are not required.
All steps are undertaken if the coating is delaminating or the roof has a stripped appearance.
