Our step by step account on
how to repair and repaint a round hayshed
This job is best done in dry weather.
This is a good time to carry out repairs to a shed. Expect to pay
€5 to €10 per square metre for cleaning and one coat of oxide paint, depending on
the condition of shed, size, paint used, etc.
The quality of this overall job depends on the cleaning of the roof. The roof is
powerwashed to remove grime, dirt and
flakes of loose paint.
Working on a roof is a dangerous job.
Cleaning requires power and reach.
These two pumps operate at 3,000 lbs
of pressure. At this kind of pressure, the water jet will remove all dirt and most
loose paint. The hoses are 150ft long.
Here, we can see what the washing is removing — lichen,moss,
dust and debris that has been stuck to the roof
surface for years.
Loose paint has been taken off.
All that remains now is sound paint and bare metal.
We can see that there was plenty of dirt on this roof.
Without this thorough cleaning, any new coat of paint would have had a short life
before starting to peel off.
The roofs are cleaned and ready for painting.
Note that some repair work has been done to the round roof
on the left. While the sheeting on these sheds is generally sound, there is some
rusting at the overlaps.
This happens because damp gets trapped between the
two sheets of metal.
Procedures include putting flexible foil patches on rust holes and then painting
That isn’t really an option at a corroded overlap.
Instead, we place a insert of new corrugated sheeting under the rusted sheet end.
The shed is half painted using a good oxide product.
Sound, well-aged sheeting like this does not require any primer under oxide paint.
Experienced painters will apply paint in one coat,
taking care not to leave any misses or light patches.
