Oregon Tile Coating

DIY Restoration

This DIY job took an old, damaged roof from drab to beautiful in just under one month. The homeowner, who undertook the task, worked closely with Nutech Paint’s representatives to achieve the perfect finish. The color Sienna was chosen to match the original tile color and create the impression that the roof was brand new.

Because of the age of the roof, several broken, cracked, and chipped tiles were replaced. Then the entire surface was pressure cleaned to create a stable base. The tiles were very weathered and porous, so Nutech Paint’s GP Primer was used. GP Primer has high solids and is can fill gaps to create an even base for top coating.

Two coats of NXT Cool Coat in color Sienna were applied as the top coat. The homeowner chose to use the high-gloss finish as this is both visually striking and helps with the reflectivity of NXT. Because of the shape of the tiles, the barge caps on the roof ends were hand painted instead of sprayed. The entire project took just 3 weeks to complete.
