For over 40 years, Colorbond® roofs have been tested in some of our country’s harshest climatic conditions so it’s designed to last (and look good) in Australian conditions. Your choice of colour (one of 20 colours inspired by nature) and versatility (curved, flat or pitched roof lines) allows you to suit your house style and the surroundings.
Colorbond Steel cools down fast when the sun sets, so less heat is radiated into your home. In winter the same roof, combined with insulation, helps keep the warmth in. Every colour in the standard COLORBOND® steel range features Thermatech® solar reflectance technology to reflect more of the sun’s heat in summer. So whichever way you look at it, your home is more energy efficient and your roof can help reduce your cooling and energy costs.
A metal roof can be either ZINCALUME® or COLORBOND®, which is a lightweight, yet extremely strong, Australian product created by Bluescope Steel. It is made by taking Zincalume (a zinc & aluminium alloy coating that delivers outstanding anti-corrosion performance), a conversion layer is applied to the surface of the steel to improve adhesion and then baking a polyester primer onto the surface. Finally, the top coat is applied (specially developed, exterior grade paint) that is baked on to ensure maximum resistance to chipping, peeling and cracking.
We like using Colorbond steel because it is an Australian product, manufactured in Australia, so we support our own economy.
As with any roofing material, there are options and installation requirements that you should find out about. We are very happy to take you through them, so feel free to call us on 0404 022 061 or send us an email to email@example.com.
