How to Choose the Right Colorbond® Roof for Your Home

Blog |June 8th, 2018

Colorbond® steel roofing has been tested in the various Australian environments over the years and found to be a durable, energy-efficient choice for home roofs throughout the country. Since it comes in 22 different colours along with matching or complementary colours of fascia, gutters, and downpipes of this same brand, it is easy to select the correct choice for your house. All that you need to do is use the following tips to achieve this goal.

The Shade of Colorbond® Should Complement the Overall Colour Scheme of Your House’s Exterior

Choose the shade of Colorbond® roofing that best complements your home’s exterior colour scheme. While it does not need to be the exact same colour, it should blend well with the existing exterior colour without clashing.

Blend in With Your Surroundings

Another consideration when choosing this brand of roof is that you may want to blend in with your surroundings. For example, if you are in a coastal area, you may want a shade of blue or green as long as the colour will complement the exterior of your house right too, as we spoke of in the above section. In fact, Colorbond® has a shade called Deep Ocean that is an attractive medium-dark shade of blue.

Select the Right Colour for the Thermal Performance That Suits Your Climate the Best

The colour that you select will influence the thermal performance of your Colorbond® roof. If you live in the warmer parts of Australia, you may want to select a light colour of it since the light colours help your house stay cooler during the hottest parts of the year. On the other hand, when you live in areas of the country that experience true winter temperatures, the wisest choice in colours would be the darker shades since they help the house retain heat more efficiently.

Colorbond® Roofing Is Non-Combustible and Ideal for Fire-Prone Areas

There are a number of fire-prone areas in Australia. In these areas, houses must be fire resistant for the safety of their residents. If you live in one of these areas, you can select Colorbond roofing with confidence due to the fact that it is non-combustible.
