Painting the roof again...

Finally a day good enough for painting. Being restricted to working weekends makes it hard to find a decent day free from rain, but today was the day. We sanded down and removed the areas of the paintwork from last time that we weren't happy with, and Corinne primed the roof again.

 A good job done and we are a lot happier with the result. Our plan is to get the outside primed again before winter sets in.

Taking a well deserved break.


  1. Hi I see we are both painting at the same time, it would help if the weather would behave! I think your both doing a grand job.
    Debbie :)

  2. You did it alone, Corinne? Whoa?! If so, then congratulations! That must have been a tough job for you. It would be great if you could post a before and after picture of the newly painted roof, though.

  3. Hi Roslyn,
    It was not a tough job, it was only primer to stop the rust coming through. It will probably need doing again at some stage. I think the tough job is going to be the actual finishing coats. Not looking forward to that.

  4. Correct me if I’m wrong, but as the picture portrays, it’s still cloudy and I think it’s not really that sunny to paint the roof. I know a few women who paints their roof, and I’m glad that you’ll be one of them Corrine. My wife used to join me in the roof when I’m doing repairs. :) How’s the roof now? I hope you really prevented it from rusting.

  5. Coating the roof with protective paint will make the roof more tolerant against chemical reactions. The paint serves as an extra cover to protect the roof from the extreme heat of the sun and acid rain.
