From heat wave to torrential rains, the roof of your home is your first line of defense from extreme weather. You need to choose a heavy duty roof paint to protect the roof that shelters you.

Paint your roof with Boysen Roofgard, a long-lasting and corrosive resistant roof paint.

Boysen Roofgard is a gloss acrylic water-based roof paint that protects and adheres to galvanized surfaces and concrete roof tiles. It is a durable paint that provides excellent UV resistance, which means it keeps its color better without fading compared to other paints. Its paint film remains flexible over time without cracking and peeling. It also has good gloss retention that translates to good dirt pick-up resistance. In addition, it prevents flash rusting or corrosion so you’re sure you won’t have leaky roof anytime soon.

It is hassle-free to paint your roof with Boysen Roofgard. Since it is water-based, you do not need to use thinners and solvent reducers. You can easily clean paint drips with just soap and water. It also dries in an hour compared to an eight-hour drying time for solvent-based roof paints.

More importantly, if you’re looking for roof paint that doesn’t hurt Mother Nature, this should be one of your options.  It is low in odor, non-flammable, and does not contain hazardous solvents.  Just like all of Boysen paints, Boysen Roofgard does not contain lead or mercury.

A 4-Liter Boysen Roofgard can cover 30-35 sq. m. per coat depending on surface texture and porosity.
