For Perth homeowners, installing a COLORBOND® metal roof, such as a tin or corrugated iron roof, makes perfect sense.

  • It adds immediate value to your home
  • It’s strong, secure and sound
  • It improves the look of your home

COLORBOND® steel products are an exceptionally popular and respected choice for professional roof contractors for a number of reasons.

Let’s take a look at some of the main benefits.

The Best Range of Colours and Styles

COLORBOND® offers the best range of roofing colours to complement your building design. The huge range of colours gives building designers and owners more creative licence to come up with something that has a truly unique presence.

Coupled with that, roof sheeting is available in a range of profiles to suit both the look and design requirements of your structure. With COLORBOND®, you can really tailor your roof to match your home’s environment and unique aesthetic.

The Perfect Match for Our Environmental Conditions

COLORBOND® roofing has been specially developed for the intense sunlight and temperatures typical of our harsh Australian environments. This is particularly important for Perth homeowners, with our wild summer storm season and scorching summer temperatures.

Because COLORBOND® roofs have been designed to be more resilient to our climate; they’ll last longer than other roofs.

Design Flexibility

COLORBOND® roofing delivers excellent spanning capabilities for efficient structures, allowing for more column-free floor area, giving you more space in your home and more versatility to incorporate open plan living.

Roof pitches can be down to one degree when using an appropriate roofing profile. The flexibility of COLORBOND® designs mean you can get the exact roof you want and need for your home.

Fast, Efficient Construction

Mobile roll forming means roof sheets can be rolled on-site in lengths up to 100 metres, eliminating the need for lap joints. This makes the construction process faster and easier, which will also save you money.

Thermally Efficient

Roofing made from COLORBOND® steel can assist in controlling the amount of heat entering your building. In fact, under certain circumstances, lighter colours may even help you qualify for insulation concessions, adding to overall construction cost and time savings.

Being more thermally efficient is also a greener option, as you’ll use less cooling throughout your home. Better for your wallet and better for the environment.

Strong and Durable

With its corrosion-resistant steel base and baked on paint finish that resists chipping, peeling and cracking, COLORBOND® steel delivers renowned long life performance.

It’s also non-combustible, termite resistant and weather tight, protecting your investment against our harsh Australian conditions. Advanced pre-painted coating technology also ensures your roof stays looking newer for longer.

Considering all these factors, it’s easy to see that COLORBOND® roofs are the perfect option for Australian homeowners. With their strong reputation, they are very popular with experienced roofing technicians, so get in touch with a reputable roof contractor in your area for more information.
