Roof repairs as an umbrella name for a maintenance project or task can cover anything from fixing a leaking roof, to rejuvenating and recolouring faded roof tiles. Damaged guttering can be classed as a roof repair project, as could applying solar and heat reflective coatings to roofing to protect underlying substrates and materials. This category will consist of several sub-categories which we hope will help you find the best product, quickly, to meet your roof repair requirements. Don't forget that when it comes to roof repairs, you will need to use highly effective cleaning and moss removal products, and could need roof paint finishing topcoats. Contact Rawlins Paints' Technical Support Team for advice on product and system combinations for any stage of a repair project - and which products can help extend the lifespan of roofing for up-to 20 years.
