Hi guys (and gals)
I was just after a word of advice on restoring our pressed tin tile roof.
The 50yr old red paint is badly oxidized, but more to the point there is rust, lots of it. From what I can tell it's only surface rust, the strength of the metal has not been compromised - yet. I'm hoping to clean it, rust treat it, and paint it (as a new roof was quoted at $10,000, including to upgrade the baton size in line with local by-laws). It does leak in numerous places, but I think it's from the seals on the old nails letting go, so it also needs re-fixing. And 3/4 of our gutters need replacing... bit more than just surface rust when you can see through it.
Is there anything I need to know? Is that even going to work? I heard someone say something about etching. Is that just for terracotta/ concrete tile roofs?
And yes, I have a harness I can wear with a safety rope. Safety 1st... so long as it doesn't get in the way of fun! Thanks people.
