The Do's and Don'ts of Painting Your Roof This Spring​

Spring is fast approaching and you’ve decided to give your home’s roof a fresh coat of paint. There’s a lot to consider when it comes to painting your roof in the springtime and choosing the right roof coating, and it can be tough to avoid some common mistakes if you’re not careful. 

At U.B. Code Roofing Consultants, we know just how important it is for our clients in the Aurora, Colorado area to receive high-quality service that uses the right roof paint and materials for their needs. To that end, the skilled professionals at U.B Code Roofing have put together this guide of what to do, and what not to do, when painting your home’s roof this spring:

Why spring is the best time to paint your roof 

With springtime comes warm and dry days that are perfect for starting a roof painting project. It’s essential that when you’re painting your home’s roof that you start when your roof’s surface is ready to cure an exterior coat of paint. The right surface temperature of your roof during spring can make sure that your coat of paint doesn’t end up freezing with asymmetrical brushstrokes visible.


It may seem like a lot can go into painting your roof in the spring, but in reality, there are only a few key things you need to make sure you do as you paint your roof: 

  • Clean your surface well so that your paint clings properly to your roof and dries in brushstrokes that are nice and even. Homeowners can typically use an algaecide-based water and chemical mixture available at most local hardware stores.
  • Properly apply a sealant to your roof so that your external coating of paint doesn’t sag or dry unevenly. It’s important to wait for your sealant to fully set before you begin painting the surface of your roof.
  • Invest in energy-efficient paint that doesn’t contain chemicals or additives, so that you can reduce your roof’s overall level of energy consumption. Energy-efficient roofing paint can offer long-term energy and cost savings that can help homeowners transfer heat away from their house.


As one of Denver’s most trusted roofing contractors, U.B. Code Roofing Consultants understands which common pitfalls to avoid when painting your roof in the spring:

  • Never reuse leftover paint supplies when applying new coats of paint to your roof’s surface. Always keep supplies fresh to ensure they function as efficiently as possible to avoid having to re-apply an exterior coat of paint.
  • Address rust patches and never ignore them or gloss them over as you’re painting the rest of your roof. Use metal roof paint with a zinc primer to make sure you prevent any metal roof rust from accumulating over time.
  • Always wait for paint to dry before you add any additional layers of paint to your roof. Paint can clump up and dry in ugly ways that address your roof’s appearance after you finish painting it.
