Make your old roof tiles like new

By Hawaii Renovation Posted in: ExteriorRoofingSurfacing

Monier concrete tiles are a great, long-lasting roofing system that have proven themselves in Hawaii through the test of time.

However, many of those roofs are now 30 years old and starting to show their age. Tearing off the old roof and replacing it is often $30,000 or more. Think twice before painting on regular exterior house paint in an effort to spruce things up; it will quickly crack and peel. The sun’s UV exposure on a roof is at least three times more than on your walls.

It’s no wonder repairing the existing roof and then coating it with NXT Cool Zone has become so popular in Hawaii. The roof not only looks like new, but also reflects the infrared heat rays with its special pigments, which can reduce your inside temperatures by up to 7 degrees — even if you choose a dark color. In the last 42 years, more than 800,000 roofs — Monier concrete, asphalt shingle and metal — have been renewed with NXT Cool Zone. Leakmaster Roofing is now offering $500 off of new estimates for roofs 2,000 square feet or larger. Smaller roofs can be prorated.

Here’s what needs to be done to get your roof in tip top shape:

Replace cracked or missing roof tiles

You can blame falling coconuts, heavy termite tenting, contractors bouncing around on your roof or just the natural weathering that occurs when the protective glazed coating on Monier tiles finally burns out from the sun’s UV rays. Whatever the cause, the cracked tiles must be replaced to make the roof watertight.
