    Roofing Materials

    Maxwells DIY offers roofing paint from trusted brands such as Thompsons and Blue Hawk, which guarantee an outstanding roofing job every time. All roofing paint from Maxwells DIY can be used on a variety of surfaces including metals, wood, concrete, felt and corrugated iron. Our paint seal features a scientifically engineered elastomeric coating, which will aid the roof in flexing as the house experiences periods of natural movement over time, and will not leave your roof seal cracked.

    Roof seal can be used for fixing both small and large scale problem areas on the surface of almost all roofing materials. For everything related to gutterings and fixings, including gutter brackets, connectors and running outlets, head on over to Maxwells dedicated gutterings and fixings department.

    Preparation is everything when it comes to roofing

    All roofs should be thoroughly cleaned before applying any type of roofing solution, such as paint or adhesive. Using a high pressure water hose is one of the easiest ways to dislodge old paint and stubborn debris. When it comes to porous surfaces, you should seek to combine a high pressure washer with a suitable chemical solution, which will allow you to remove mould from the pores of the roof. Because it’s such a pivotal job, and is left exposed to the elements; if you’re not fully prepared when you start a roofing job, you’re at the mercy of unfortunate changes in weather. Make sure the forecast is clear, and you don’t start applying paint or any other kind of treatment to your roof in humid conditions, or where rain is likely. Most modern solutions are designed to dry faster and more effectively in dry conditions, so holding off for clearer skies is definitely recommended.
