Whether it is a new building or one which needs a revamp, a metal panel façade from Action is sure to meet your needs for your home or workplace.
Gutters are an important part of your home. They direct water away from your home’s exterior walls, windows, doors, and foundation, preventing water from making its way inside. Although cleaning your gutters several times a year will enhance the longevity of your system, most gutters will need to be repaired or replaced eventually to help protect your home.
Perforated metal facades are making their way around the world one country at a time. We have seen a completely perforated exterior on a railway control centre in Spain, a golden perforated frontage on a library in Denmark, and even a perforated metal façade in Amsterdam designed to resemble a curtain. Now, Portugal can’t seem to get enough of perforated metal either!
As summer nears, there are two things that Gold Coast residents are preparing for. First – the soaring temps; and secondly – rain. And while we wish summer didn’t have to be our storm season, we can’t deny our love for the sound of heavy rain falling on our metal roofs!
To all our valued customers and suppliers, Wishing you a safe and happy Christmas and prosperous New Year.
Perforated metal facades are building in popularity in international architecture. Not only are they used for visual appeal, they can also be utilised for noise reduction, weight reduction and heat dissipation. An excellent example of a perforated metal frontage that has landed on our radar is a railway control centre in Spain designed by Madrid architects Moreno del Valle.
For many people, choosing a roof is primarily about style. But equally important is peace of mind. You want to feel confident that your roof will continue to protect your home and its precious contents even under the most extreme conditions imaginable. Due to this, many opt to have steel roofs, with ongoing research showing they typically offer better protection in the summer storm season than concrete, slate and terracotta tiles.
With the recent storms that hit the Gold Coast and probably more to come, we thought we’d let you know how we can help you deal with any thunderstorm or hailstorm damage you may have.
Ah yes, Christmas time in Australia. Warm weather, a beer or six with close mates and family, and a good old-fashioned game of backyard cricket. But are you worried about where you will fit all the guests this Christmas? Why not get outdoors and enjoy the Gold Coast breeze and summer in a new patio!
With Christmas fast approaching we thought we would share with you the Action Sheetmetal & Roofing order cut off dates.
As your roof can cop a battering in a severe thunderstorm, we would like to stress how important it is to prepare for storm season. Even with a quality roof, no house will be completely safe from damage so Gold Coast residents must take measures now to avoid the negative consequences of the coming storms.
With the hail storm that swept the Gold Coast and South East Queensland this week, hundreds, if not thousands of polycarbonate and fibreglass roof sheets, skylights and roof light panels have been broken and need replacing.

With Christmas fast approaching we thought we would share with you the Ausdeck Patio and Roofing Order cut off dates. Ausdeck Patios and Roofing would like to take this opportunity to advise our valued customers of some important dates leading up to the Christmas and New Year period.
Many of us remember growing up with a Colorbond roof. In 1966 the first coil of Colorbond steel rolled off the Number 1 coil painting line at Port Kembla, Wollongong. The new line was the talk of the steel industry, and its new product soon became a firm favourite within the building industry. But, like everything, roof styles go in and out of fashion and it was tiled roofs that ruled the eighties and nineties. However, Colorbond roofs are now very much back ‘in vogue’, with nearly half of all new homes in Australia having roofs made from Colorbond steel thanks to an extensive colour range, greater sustainability, and now - a brand revamp.
