Rinocote Roof Armour is a super tough, long-life roof membrane that will beautify your home, add value, and protect your roof against New Zealand's harsh climate and extreme conditions for decades to come.
Rinocote has four unique roof membrane systems that can be applied to a range of substrates including: pressed metal tile, concrete tile and galvanised iron/faded steel.
For optimal performance and longevity, each roof type requires a specific coating system. Avoid companies who offer "ordinary paint" as the one solution for all roof types.
Rinocote is applied approximately 150% thicker than ordinary paint, providing optimal protection for your roof.
