Benefits of Colorbond Roofing

Colorbond Roofing is a hardwearing roofing material which is extremely popular in Australia due to its ability to maintain its structure and appearance in harsh and regularly fluctuating weather conditions. The coated steel is manufactured by Australian company BlueScope Steel, and is the choice of material for commercial and residential builders across Australia. Below outlines some of the many benefits of using Colorbond Roofing.

Stylish Design + Colour Choices

Colorbond is available in a broad range of colours and profiles to suit your specific aesthetic requirements. If you want a material that is highly durable, matches your colour theme and can be unique, Colorbond is an excellent option.

Virtually No Maintenance

Colorbond is constructed with a high quality steel, with the colour of your choice bonded to the steel. This structure ensures the colour will not require painting updates like other steel roofing materials. Further, Colorbond is termite resistant, will not crack like roof tiles, non-combustible, and weather tight, meaning the wear and tear to your roof will be minimal.

Hardwearing and Durable Material

Colorbond is a versatile material that can be installed on virtually any roof regardless of pitch and location. The material also offers a high level of security in extreme weather conditions, as the steel is less likely to detach compared to tiles on a tiled roof. The material is also lightweight, making installation faster and putting less structural weight pressure on the foundation of your property.

Australian Made

When you purchase Colorbond Steel, you are supporting the local Australian economy. BlueScope Steel manufactures all Colorbond products including roofing within Australia.

Thermal Qualities

Colorbond has excellent thermal properties helping keeping your home cooler in Summer and warmer in Winter. The material is able to cool down much faster at night compared to a tiled roof.


Colorbond Steel is completely recyclable. Steel is one of the most reusable products globally. Additionally, it is pre-cut before reaching the building site, reducing wastage, and is lightweight, increasing energy efficient during transportation.
