Do I Need To Get My Roof Coated?


Is your roof looking a little tired? Is it structurally sound but seems a bit faded and weathered? It’s not surprising, as your roof cops a beating from the elements all year round, not to mention any other damage from animals, kid’s toys and falling tree branches that can make it look less than appealing and significantly diminish its lifespan.

Roof coating, also known as roof painting, is the process in which a fully adhered, seamless membrane is applied to your roof surface. It can not only breathe new life into tired-looking tiles, but it has significant benefits for the rest of your home.

  • Lowers Temperature
  • Prevents Damage
  • Prolongs Roof Life

Lowers Temperature

Because the membrane helps reflect most of the heat and ultraviolet rays from the sun, the temperature is lower in the house below. This also results in less electricity being used in the form of air conditioning in the summer.

Prevents Damage

The protective, fluid applied layer provides a barrier against damage to the roof tiles. Much like plastic contact on a book, this layer is non-penetrable to everyday wear and tear, resulting in the decreased likelihood of cracked tiles and leaks. This means less chance of drips in the house or vermin in the roof.

Prolongs Roof Life

When damage is minimized with this protective layer, the life of your roof is extended. Depending on the thickness and brand of membrane used and the weather conditions you live in, roof coating can increase the life of your roof by up to 10 years.

Do I Need to Get My Roof Coated?

The most important defense against structural damage from weather and other elements is your roof. It makes up approximately 40% of the outside external surface and needs to be maintained accordingly. ROOFWEST provide a range of roof restoration services with over 35 years of experience. Servicing the South West and Great Southern Region, the team at ROOFWEST are happy to provide you with a free onsite quote. Call Tom and the team today on 9795 9990.

Day 154

One Bottle One Glass

To get sober, all you have to do is not drink. Why did it take me so long to figure this out? I’m slowly figuring out why because if nothing else, sobriety gives you lots of mental clarity to reflect on why you drink/drank, and why you aren’t anymore. I think a huge part of my identity was tied to drinking. I knew it was wrong and I knew I wasn’t drinking the way I considered appropriate, but I didn’t know how to not drink. I wasn’t doing anything to learn another way, and sobriety seemed so boring and awful. I was drinking about drinking, but I was doing very little to learn how to live without alcohol. Nowadays, I shudder to think of a hangover again. I rarely crave the awful taste in my mouth after a night of heavy drinking. Not that I particularly enjoyed it, but I

Choose the best product for your pool

Sure, traditional bleach is the most popular option pool owners have relied on for cleaning/maintaining their pool. However this is not the only option; salt water chlorinators have risen in popularity over the years as an easier, and better option for cleaning pools. Whether you want to eliminate harsh chemicals in the pool, or simply want an easier way to clean the pool, these products can provide a viable solution for your cleaning and filtration needs.

How do they work 
These products use dissolved salt in order to create the chlorine required to clean your pool. Although not chlorine free (as some may believe), they do provide a less harsh (fewer chemicals) method to clean your pool. The process of electrolysis is used to dissolve the salt into hypochlorous acid and sodium hypochlorite.

The method allows you to forego the process of simply dumping bleach into your pool. Rather, the chlorine generator continues to generate chlorine, until more salt is required for filtration/cleaning to occur.

How long do they last/cost? 
If properly maintained, you can expect salt water chlorinators to last anywhere from 3 to 7 years. The cost of purchase and maintenance over this time can run from a little under $500, onward to over $1100 (if you have to replace parts or do repair work). For this reason, it is important to know which systems are most popular, and built to last, in order to ensure you purchase the best product for cleaning your home’s pool.

You must clean and properly maintain your pool. For those who want a simple solution, and safer option than simply dumping bleach in the drains, this is one which might be considered by owners. Before you buy new salt water chlorinators, it is important to know what you are getting. For pool owners or business owners which rely on these products, saltwater-chlorinator.com is a great place to compare, contrast, and ultimately find the best product for your cleaning needs.

  • Tradesmen or builders and contractors that have repaired or worked on the house.
  • Past relationships of the previous owners
  • Those who found or have stolen the key

Always Remember

Its easy not to forget the locks on the front / main door or gate but dont forget the storage sheds, garages and windows.

Changing the Locks

There are a lot of options when charging a lock but choose the one that suits your need. Even if your busy, always find time and don’t delay. Changing the lock should be one of your top priority before even moving in.

  1. Seek advice from professionals. If your not the handy , calling in a locksmith would ensure that the job is done right. The locksmith will professionally change your lock and give all spare keys. Try to ask a quote from different locksmithing companies. The yellow page or local directories online would be a good way to start.
  2. Re-cut, re-key or reprogrammed existing locks. This is an inexpensive way to change locks. Buy a new key on ebay and reprogram it yourself. There are solutions or instructions depending on the key online. It wont take 30 minutes to reprogram a key. Or, get a locksmith to rekey them. Most locksmiths are willing to give you instructions.
  3. Do it yourself. If your the handyman type, you can try installing the locks yourself. Almost all hardware stores that sell them come with very clear instructions on how to install new locks.
