When looking at the price of painting a roof, it is important to understand what this price actually covers. Generally, when looking at the cost of exterior painting, the factors you will see below generally determine the overall cost.

Size of Roof

The size of your roof is the first thing that we will take into account when coming up with the quote. As a rule of thumb, larger roof areas typically mean more substantial costs.

Roof Type

The average cost of painting a roof will also be based on your roof type. There are metal roofs, tiled roofs, corrugated iron roofs (which is the most popular roof type) and tray roofs that you can usually see on commercial buildings. Different roof types require different paint. Therefore, we will also take your roof type into consideration when estimating the average cost.

Angle of Roof

Steeply angled roofs increase the overall surface area and must be factored in when measuring your roof. Severe angles can increase the difficulty and access requirements, which can impact the overall price.

Condition of Roof

Some roofs will require additional preparation and priming prior to applying the coatings so it’s important to closely inspect roofs current condition when seeking an estimate. Ensuring the roof is in the best condition possible before applying paint is key to a long-lasting paint job.


Painting a roof is a complicated process. Since roofs are constantly exposed to different weather elements, we always recommend opting for higher quality paint to make sure that the result will last you for many years to come. For example, you have an option to choose a paint with UV protection as it’s going to protect your roof from fading too quickly. This type of paint is more expensive but will end up costing you less in the long run.
