A faded, cracked or mossy roof can impact both the curb appeal and the protection it gives to your home . 

Over time, weather can take a toll on your roof, with severe weather cracking or dislodging tiles, damp creating moss and lichen and the sun dulling your original roof colour to something pale and bland. 

Quality roof restoration or roof repair is a cheaper and often better option than roof replacement, and Mr Paint specialises in professional roof painting that will restore the sparkle to your home.

Regardless of the type of roof, be it residential, commercial or industrial, MrPaint’s roof painting company can guarantee quality work and satisfaction.

Terracotta Tiled Roofs

There are two main types of terracotta tiles used for roofs, unglazed and glazed. Unglazed tiles are the standard red you see across Cairns, but for a more modern and custom look, terracotta tiles can be glazed or painted any colour to suit your home.

MrPaint are experts at terracotta roof tile painting, selecting the right colour and paint to create a flawless and cohesive new look for your home. Roof restoration will involve first inspecting and then repairing or replacing any loose or broken tiles.

We then use high pressure hoses to clean any moss or dirt from your existing terracotta roof tiles, creating the perfect surface for your new paint to adhere to. Specialised equipment is then used to prime and paint the tiles for a smooth, clean finish that will last.

Concrete Roof Tiles

Concrete is another popular material for roof tiles, which can suffer the same fate as terracotta. 

While very durable, dirt and moss can build up over time, while the effects of the sun can dull the original colour. 

MrPaint can repair or replace any broken tiles and then pressure clean them to remove any lichen or mould from the tiles. The final step is roof tile painting to refresh the old colour or to bring a new style to the house.

The painting process is important to us and we will take the time to prep your roof before starting any work. This includes cleaning the surface and repairing any damage that may have occurred over time. 


We specialise in slate roofing and have a team of experts who are experienced in working with this type of material. We will make sure your roof looks amazing and provides protection from the elements for years to come. 

Metal Roofing Service

Colorbond or steel roofing is growing in popularity across Cairns, as a durable and modern alternative to tiles. Whether you want to de-rust and refresh the original roof, or go in a new direction with a brand new shade, Mr Paint can help. 

For metal or colorbond roofs, it’s important to fully clean the roof first, using an industrial pressure cleaner to break down any oxidation or rust and leave the roof with the best surface for the paint to adhere to.

The roof must then be primed to give maximum bonding for the paint to stick to. A special spray paint gun is used to make sure the primer layer is as smooth and even as possible. Lastly specialised roof paint, designed for metal is carefully applied. There is an enormous range of shades that can be applied, from the classic red or greys, to more modern browns, greens and even very pale beige for the all-white instagram look!

We understand the importance of using top quality materials and will only use the best products available to ensure your roof looks great.

Gutter cleaning


One additional area that can be forgotten is the guttering system around your roof. Broken gutters that leak and gap away from the edge of the house roof need to be repaired, then can be painted a similar or complementary colour to the roof.

Mr Paint can work with you to get the roof look that you are after. All types of gutters, from box gutters or fascia gutters, from round or square can be revitalised with the right paint job. Mr Paint can paint all materials of gutters, from steel to aluminium to even vinyl. By ensuring that a good quality undercoat and primer are applied first, we ensure that the paint will last for years and not peel within 12 months


Downpipes are an important part of the roof ecosystem of your house, and it is easy to underestimate how noticeable they can be and how they can affect the curb appeal of your home. Rusting or broken downpipes can cause your roof to lose its integrity and reduce its lifespan. They may even cause water to pool on the edges and surfaces of your roof. With damaged downpipes, water could leak into your roof cavity and cause further damage to your property.

Replacing or repairing downpipes is a key aspect of roof restoration and once they have been properly repaired, they can be painted a range of matching, or complementary colours to your roof and gutter system.

Choosing Colours

The roof is one of the largest visual elements of a home and when painting it, deciding what colour to go with can be a challenging process.

The style of the roof, from a substantial A-frame roof which dominates the house look and feel, to the more suburban-standard gable roof or even a modern flat roof all contribute to the style of your home and play part in the colour decision.

Where the roof is a large feature that dominates the style of the home, you might want to go with more muted or mid-tone colours in grey or brown. However for a smaller roofline on a modern home you can go bold, with dark colours and strong lines; which are both popular roofing colours.

The surrounds of your home should also be taken into account, with homes amongst trees or on rural properties suiting a gentler look that blends with the natural environment. Homes on the coastline can capture the feel of the sea with subdued blues and greens bringing out the tones of the ocean.

More suburban homes should look to the general feel of the neighbourhood and decide if you want to blend in, or stand out. Once the roof colour has been chosen, make sure it is complemented with the guttering and downpipes that surround it. 

You can even call back the colour of the roof in simple ways across your property, with the colour reflected by the mailbox colour, or even the fence for a cohesive, styled look that maximises curb appeal, and increase the value of your property.
