Colorbond is a ready-made corrugated steel sheeting product available in Australia. Due to changes in technology in the 1950s, people discovered a way to bond paint to the galvanised steel, and in 1966, in Australia, in Wollongong, the first sheets of Colorbond were produced.
In fact, Colorbond is now so popular that it is used in over 90% of home constructions in Australia!
You can’t walk into a hardware shop in Australia without running into a Colorbond swatch.

As you can see, the names are inspired by Australia life – and the colours are too. Designed to fit in both with the colours of the outback, as well as the colours of our shorelines, it means that the Colorbond Roofs product you choose for your home will blend nicely with the natural surrounds – even if you are in suburbia.
Other companies have chosen to match Colorbond colours for their products, too – which makes it easy to deck out your home in a matching colour palette. Items like letterboxes and wheelbarrows also come matching these colours. You can tint your tin of paint to match the colours, and Colorbond also offers palette swatches indicating which Colorbond colours complement each other.
To put it shortly: Colorbond is omnipresent in Australia, and if you are starting to look at a new home then you’ll probably see Colorbond somewhere. All Roofing Services, for roofing in Sydney, can re-roof your home in Colorbond, giving you the best protection against the Australian elements, all in the appropriate colour of your choice.
