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.
There are so many reasons why COLORBOND® steel is the right choice for your home. Here are just five of them.
1. Made for Australian conditions
For over 40 years our scientists have been rigorously testing COLORBOND® steel in some of our country's harshest climatic conditions. So whether your roof or walls, gutters, or fence are made from COLORBOND® steel, you can be sure it’s great Aussie looks will last.
2. A wide range of colours to mix & match
From light to dark, delicate to deep, elegant to lively, the standard COLORBOND® steel range includes 20 beautiful colours inspired by nature. This gives you the scope to achieve the look you want to suit your house style and the surroundings.
3. Thermal efficiency for year-round comfort
COLORBOND® steel cools down fast when the sun sets, so less heat is radiated into your home. In winter the same roof, combined with insulation, helps keep the warmth in.
Also every colour in the standard COLORBOND® steel range features Thermatech® solar reflectance technology to reflect more of the sun's heat in summer.
So your home is more energy efficient and can help reduce your cooling and energy costs.
4. An inspiration for innovative home designs
Because steel is lightweight yet extremely strong, it is ideal for today's modern home designs. These could feature high ceilings, open-plan layouts, dramatic wall lines and stylish roofs, whether curved, flat or pitched.
5. Made and backed by Australian owned BlueScope Steel
COLORBOND® steel is strong and durable. It’s made in Australia for Australia and warranted for a range of applications by BlueScope Steel.
The last thing any home owner wants is to have a problem with their new roof and find that no-one wants to take any responsibility. That’s why we only use genuine Colorbond roofing.
