Colorbond’s durability and flexibility are complimented by it’s elegant looks, creating a product that has evolved into one of Australia’s most iconic brands. Thanks to years of testing, Colorbond is able to perform at it’s best in the great Australian outdoors, taking on the extremes our country offers without compromising its natural beauty. The following points outline just why Colorbond should be the first choice for your home:
Great choice of colours.
Colorbond’s range consists of more than 20 colours that have been designed to work in with our Australian environment. The excellent flexibility to match or co-ordinate with other external features creates a complimentary look without competing with your home.
Other than for roofing, Colorbond can be used for walling, rainwater tanks, feature ceilings, fencing, garden beds and much more! Being high-tensile, Colorbond steel can be bent and formed into various shapes suitable for convex and concave designs.
Colorbond is one of the toughest and most advanced building materials today. It’s been tried and tested for over 50 years in some of the harshest environments in Australia. It’s also 100% termite resistant meaning it not only looks good but is also long lasting and durable.
Durable, low maintenance.
With an oven baked finish, Colorbond actually resists chipping, flaking and cracking, even in the harshest of environments. The colour is bonded to the metal, which means that painting is not required as often as other metal roofing materials. With regular maintenance checks, your roof should stay as good as new for many years.
Excellent Thermal Insulative Qualities.
All year round, Colorbond is highly thermally efficient, radiating less heat into the house as it cools down much quicker at night, especially if installed in a lighter colour. In fact, under certain circumstances lighter colours may even help you qualify for insulation concessions, adding to overall construction cost and time savings.
If installed properly, the profiles of Colorbond steel sheeting profiles are designed for optimum water run off even on little to no pitch roofs, preventing leaks forming. The high levels of water resistance also protect against rot, mildew and mould. Mould and mildew that intrude into homes encouraged by damp conditions create an unhealthy living environment. Once mould sets in, it is nearly impossible to get rid of, especially when shady, damp conditions persist.
Colorbond is 100% recycleable. In fact, steel is one of the world’s most re-used products. It’s lightweight design makes it energy efficient to transport and it can be delivered pre-cut to building sites, therefore reducing the impact on the site and it’s surrounding environment.
Colorbond is up to 1/10th the weight of terracotta or concrete tiles, meaning that the supporting structure doesn’t have to be as complex, reducing costs in framing, and creating more unimpeded open plan space for great Australian living. Being non-absorbent, Colorbond won’t fluctuate in weight during wet weather, saving costs on engineering work in the design process of the house structure.
Great for bushfire-prone areas, Colorbond is non-combustible and easier to seal against airborne embers and burning ash.
