We’ve recommended the top paint products for several parts of the home including exteriors, kitchens, and bedrooms. Now, we’re going over the paint products to protect the roof that protects you. To be specific, these are roof paint products that can be used for roofs made of galvanized iron sheets (yero in Filipino) and unglazed roof tiles.
Your roof goes through a lot day in and day out. Year-round it has to deal with blazing heat from the sun, unforgiving rains, and strong winds. No doubt your roof takes a lot of battering from the elements and so your roof paint has to be able to keep up. The products below have got your back. Heavy-duty and reliable, here are the trusted top roof paints from the Boysen family of paints:
Boysen Roofgard is an acrylic water-based roof paint specially formulated to be long-lasting and durable. It has excellent adhesion to surfaces it’s applied on, and its thermoplastic film remains flexible over time without cracking and peeling. Moreover, homeowners will be happy to know that it’s also designed to protect your roof against corrosion (a.k.a. rust or pangangalawang in Filipino).
Professional painters and DIYers alike will find Boysen Roofgard convenient and easy to use too. It’s low in odor and does not contain hazardous elements like lead or mercury. Plus, for cleanup, all you need is water and soap as long as the paint is still wet—no need for thinners and solvent reducers.
Boysen Roofgard comes in a glossy finish in a range of colors. It dries to the touch in an hour with a recoat interval of 2 to 4 hours. Remember to follow proper surface preparation procedures before painting your roof to ensure that you get the best possible results.
Boysen Cool Shades
Just like Boysen Roofgard, Boysen Cool Shades is a water-based roof paint that’s durable and dependable. What takes it up a notch is an additional feature that makes it a great choice for Filipinos who have to deal with the Philippines’ blazing hot summers.
Boysen Cool Shades is a heat-reflecting roof paint and can keep your home cooler and more comfortable in hot weather. It does this by utilizing infrared-reflecting (IR) pigments. The IR pigments bounce back light hitting your roof before it can turn into heat that’s absorbed by your house. This then reduces heat build-up resulting to a cooler home.
You can be sure that it works too. Boysen Cool Shades was tested by the Department of Science and Technology (DOST). Results showed an up to 15ºC decrease in surface temperature on sample materials with Cool Shades versus conventional roof coating. It will also stay this way as Boysen Cool Shades’ 100% acrylic binder preserves the heat-reflecting properties over time (a.k.a. for several more Philippine summers).
Boysen Cool Shades also comes in a glossy finish in several shades. For an optimum cooling effect, a water-based white metal primer is recommended such as the Boysen Primeguard B-4301 White for surfaces that have never been painted.
