A technology designed to reflect more of the sun’s heat on the warmer days, making your home less dependant on air conditioning and reducing the stress your roof must endure during the hot Australian Summers.

FAQS

How much does Colorbond roofing cost?
One sheet of Colorbond steel roofing can cost anywhere from $18 – $37, this is due to the different types of Colorbond.

There are 3 main types of Colorbond roofing:

1. Powder coated
Powder coating is a dry, high quality finish which is proven to be more durable than liquid paint finishes. It prevents against chipping, scratches, corrosion, chemical weathering and weather conditions.
2. Double sided
Double sided Colorbond can be used for roofs on patios, pergolas and other outdoor living areas, it is a cost effective way to give a sleek finish to your property as it low maintenance, attractive and does not require painting.
3. Ultra Steel
Designed for extreme coastal and industrial purposes, it has been used on buildings such as the Outrigger Resort Centre, Hamilton Island and the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre.

How long does a Colorbond roof last?
With qualified roofing specialists installing your roof and regular maintenance and care, your Colorbond roofing should last a lifetime. Colorbond roofing is one of the more durable options for your roof due to the fact that it is resistant to cracking and peeling, and that it repels pests.

The longevity of your roof is dependent on not only your maintenance of the roof but also the conditions of the area in which you live, it is more likely for a roof on a house across from the beach to fade faster due to the winds, sun and salt, however there are steps that can be taken to combat these conditions.

Although the roof itself will last a lifetime, the vibrancy of the colour will fade over the years. When choosing the colour of your Colorbond roofing it is important to know whether your roof will be exposed to harsher conditions which will cause it to fade. Darker colours of roofing fade the most, therefore if you are aware that your roof will be exposed to higher amounts of harsh UV light, it is advised that you steer toward a lighter shade. Being smart about the colour you choose will ensure that your roof looks as good as new for a longer period of time.

What metal is Colorbond?
Colorbond is made from 100% Australian steel. The base panels are coated with BlueScopes’s Activate® technology. Activate® technology is an industry leading metallic coating that prevents any type of corrosion. The steel also undergoes a pre-treatment, which is a thin layer applied to enhance the adhesion of any further coatings.
Is Colorbond roofing better than tiles?
Colorbond is a much lighter material to work with, it is approximately 90% lighter than average roofing tiles. This not only means that the handling and installation of the steel sheets is easier and faster but that the framing of the roof is not subjected to as heavy a load. Due to the lightness of the Colorbond steel you can even use lighter battens and space rafters in the build of the framing, reducing the price of your entire roof installation.
How much does it cost to repaint a Colorbond roof?
Roof painting is a much simpler and cost effective way to revitalise the look of your roof, it costs anywhere from $6000 – $20,000 (perhaps more), depending on the size and condition of your roof. If you are looking to freshen up your tired, worn out roof, painting it is a great alternative to a full roof replacement.
