Tips for Maintaining Metal Roof Paint From ProCoat Painting, Batavia, Ohio

One of the most apparent signs of a poorly maintained roof is the deterioration of paint coating. If this problem is left unresolved, it could lead to even more severe damage to the roof’s internal components. Long-term exposure to the sun and the elements, as well as the accumulation of dirt and grime, are typical causes for the wearing away of metal roof paint. To ensure the proper maintenance of freshly painted metal roofs, residents of Batavia, OH, rely on the expertise of ProCoat Painting, as they have been in the commercial paint industry for over 30 years.

In order to preserve the quality of your metal roof paint, here a few tips you can follow:

  • Wash With Water: The simplest form of cleaning a newly painted roof is washing it lightly using a water hose to prevent algae, moss, and other agents from forming on the surface of the roof. If you wish to retain the roof’s luster, add a bit of detergent to the water and wash the roof using this solution once a year.

For agents that water and detergent cannot remove, try mixing a cup of ammonia with five gallons of water and use that solution to clean the roof. There are other solvents that can also work, but make sure you get the right ratio of solvent to water.
  • Rinse Everything Off: Whether you use detergent or other chemicals to clean your metal roof paint, make sure you do a full rinse of the roof using soap and ammonia-free water. This solution will effectively remove any residue left by the cleaning compounds that you had used.
  • Call A Professional: Annual metal roof cleaning is a crucial part of regular roof maintenance. Even with your own periodic washing, it’s a wise idea to browse painting companies and pick one who can conduct a professional roof cleaning.

If your metal roof paint is due for a wash, call ProCoat Painting at (513) 735-2500 to have a cleaning session scheduled. You can also visit their website to learn more about these commercial paint contractors.
