To leave a perfectly uniform finish Rapid Roof Paint is now available to match all tiles with a painted surface. Available in 2.5 litre tins the paint is the same as that used in the original manufacturing process ensuring a perfect bond to the tile surface and the complete elimination of minor scratches and scrape marks.
Rapid Roof Paint was developed in response to contractors asking for advice when their otherwise immaculate installation had acquired minor damage through boot scuffs or scrapes from scaffolding or ladders. Rather than having to replace the marked tiles, contractors can use Rapid Roof Paint, enabling them to conduct a final touching in of any minor areas of damage with minimal cost and disruption.
It’s a minor detail, but one that can make the difference between a pleasing installation and one that is perfect.
