The Colourbond Difference

Colorbond is a fantastic Australian steel product that has many versatile uses.  The most common usage is for roofing, rainwater goods such as flashings and rain heads and fencing but at Action Sheetmetal & Roofing we have also used the flat sheet for signage panels, desk tops and for the skin of trailers.

Gold Coast Master Builders Association Feature

Recently Action Sheetmetal & Roofing was featured in the Gold Coast Master Builders Association newsletter.

What is the Origin of your Steel?

Have you ever considered if the steel you are using or purchasing is sustainable? Or where it originated from?

A material such as steel is a sustainable material for reasons that are vital to all parties concerned. Steel products are durable and the long life of steel means that valuable resources and energy consumption is conserved in the manufacturing process of other building materials.

Spring Additions to your Patio

Spring is here and it is bringing with it all the wonderful things that shout life. It’s time to make your patio living space a place of entertainment this spring and summer. With just a few simple additions, a patio can be a wonderful place to entertain throughout the warm months ahead. Personal taste and individual personality can easily be reflected in outdoor living spaces.

New Insulated Patio for Spring

Have you been enjoying the gorgeous sunny spring days on the Gold Coast? Although a little dry for the lawn and garden, the temperatures have been great. Spring is the perfect time for a ‘spring clean’ or to finish those renovation jobs you’ve had waiting for you on the list. Why not focus on one of the areas that families use the most, your patio living space. 

Vertical Gardens for Limited Space

While living on the Gold Coast has many pros, one disadvantage is the lack of space for green areas and in particular gardens. It seems our backyards are getting smaller and we want to know how to achieve the maximum room with limited space.

Aspiring gardeners will be pleased to hear about an innovative trend called “the vertical garden”.

Perforated Sheetmetal by Design

Everyone involved in building design, renovations or actual construction knows that there is an ever growing range of new materials and fabrication techniques available to meet the specific design challenge each project faces.

Sustainable Gardens Raised

Our popular raised garden beds are just great for people with limited space but still want the convenience of growing their own fresh herbs and vegetables for the family.

Does an Insulated Patio create a Temperature Difference?

Patio roofs can be made from many different materials. Adding a cover to your home's patio can make it a comfortable place to sit even when the outside temperature is very high or very low. Insulated patios, also known as sandwich panel use foam between steel sheets to create an insulated panel that also spans further than standard Colorbond or other metal roofing. 

Designing Spaces with Pinterest

Creating the perfect space either indoor or outdoor starts with inspiration. Why not go digital and create a story board (pin board) in one easily accessible place on Pinterest.

Does it really matter if your roofing is Colorbond or not?

There are a number of roofing suppliers who are now using imported painted steel as their feed for the metal roofing they supply. While they will argue that the imported coil has improved in recent times, the fact remains that only Colorbond has passed the test of time in the harsh Australian climate – and that BlueScope Steel will stand behind their product.

Insulated roofing

So it would be fair to say that we haven’t had the best summer ever, weather wise, but if you have an Insulated Roofing panel covered patio I bet you enjoyed it more than most. 

Now that the rain is back, again, and autumn may have arrived, don’t give up on enjoying lazy afternoons outside if your patio isn't what you'd like it to be.  An insulated roof panel patio may be what you need.

Perforated metal sheets – do you need the “hole” sheet?

Are you looking for a supplier who will make perforated metal sheets the size you need rather than what is convenient for the manufacturer?  Have you designed facde panels or screening that has been folded across perforations?  You don't need to.

Does my patio look big in this?

Ok, so talking about the size of your patio doesn’t carry the same risk as telling the possible truth about how your better half’s new jeans really look, but it is important that you get a clear idea of what you are trying to achieve before you start building your new outdoor area.  Here are some lessons we've learned from years of experience.

Don’t risk your Colorbond or patio roof with dodgy roofing screws

As the difficult economic conditions only seem to get worse, owner builders and renovators are being warned to ensure that they are not risking their investment in their Colorbond roofing with dodgy roofing screws.  Everyone is looking to get great value for money, but cheap screws that aren’t made for Australia’s tough conditions aren’t good value.
