When deciding on a paint colour for your tiled roof:
Painting your tiled roof is the final part of a roofing restoration process. Proper roof maintenance or roof repairs will be required to ensure a watertight and even finish.

Body Corporate and council restrictions
It is common when living in a block of units or apartments for there to be a particular colour scheme or façade therefore when works are required you will generally need approval prior to proceeding with any changes. Most of the associations will have colour’s that you have to choose from or match to the neighbouring properties. This can become difficult when dealing with multiple owners as not everyone will be willing to make changes at the same time. You should look into what the rules and guidelines are prior to booking in and committing to any changes around the façade.
In summary, there are many options available when it comes to updating the colour of your tiled or metal roof. Just be sure to do your research and contact an industry professional before making any decisions.
