Using a good quality roof paint will always help matters as well as some common sense care and repair work over the years.

It is always advisable to paint your roof every few years to help prevent corrosion and rust from the sun and other weather conditions here in SA.

Something that people often forget is to keep the garden in order too. Trees and bushes can rub against the metal on your roof and this constant rubbing or abrasion can certainly cause damage to your roof.
Other considerations that indirectly impact your roof life are things such as your gutters. Make sure they are cleaned out every season to ensure that water can flow as intended in the original design. Failure to keep the water movement free and clear can ultimately cause issues with your roofing too!
If you want to do the job yourself and paint your own roof, it is always best to get appropriate professional advice ahead of time. Remember you can always call on us here at Hot Pot, but if you want to do you own reading before hand, then feel free to check out this blog post on Do it Youself.com about how to paint corrugated metal roofing
