At Housen, we offer roof painting Gold Coast wide, as well as our house painting service. One of the most popular colour choices for a roof painting job is white. So, our Gold Coast painters often get asked – what are the benefits of painting your roof white?
As you may know, white is a reflective colour. Things that appear white to us do so because they reflect the colour spectrum back at us. The resulting combination looks white, because white is the sum of all visible colours. Other colours are created through a combination of absorption and reflection.
Because white is a reflective colour, choosing a white colour for your roof tile paint or Colourbond roof might result in a cooler space. This is because warmth and light are reflected from your roof, rather than absorbed.
The effectiveness can vary depending on the nature of the roof painting project, weather conditions, and other factors. And, there are other options for creating a reflective surface, too. However, white roof painting is one of the most straightforward and common choices for harnessing this effect.
Of course, if your white roof painting project does create this effect, the benefits go beyond a cooler house. There is also an environmental benefit; with a cooler home, you’re less likely to need air-conditioning or other methods of staying cool. So, over time, you might save money on your power bill, and reduce your carbon footprint, too.
It can also be an appealing look. Depending on the colours and materials of your house, white might also be a tasteful choice from a design perspective. If you’d like to know more about colour options for your roof painting project, you can organise a colour consultation with Housen painters Gold Coast. We can provide roof painting Gold Coast wide.
