When your roof needs a new look, whether you want a completely new color or just a more vibrant shade of the previous hue, give it a makeover using specially formulated paint. While there are multiple products available for the task, always make sure that your current roofing will be compatible with the product you choose before beginning the project.

Step 1

Cover any flowers, plants and other outdoor fixtures near the house with a tarp before you begin. Make sure that pets and children are kept out of the way throughout the process.

Step 2

Clean the roof. A pressure washer with 3000 psi is recommended for this task. If you are uncomfortable using a pressure washer, consider hiring a professional for this step.

Step 3

Apply a primer and sealer coat to the roof using a paint roller or paintbrush. Select a primer/sealer that is specially formulated for roof tile.

Step 4

Select a finish color. Consider the color of your house, window trim and doors when selecting a color for your roof. Select a shade that complements these colors, but do not try to match them exactly. You may also want to look at the roof color of surrounding homes to make sure that your color doesn't stand out too much from the rest of the neighborhood.

Step 5

Apply the finish coat over the primer once it has completely dried. If desired, apply a second coat of finish once the first once has dried.
