Why Colorbond Roofing Is The Best Choice

Monday, January 24th, 2022

Roofing is an essential part of home construction, and the type thereof should be carefully considered to fit in with any specific needs. Colorbond roofing is a coated steel roofing material that is long-lasting, durable, resistant to weather stress and looks amazing. Let’s look at more reasons why colorbond roofing is the best choice.


Colorbond roofing is lightweight and can endure intense winds and weather conditions. Because it is so light, it puts very little weight strain on the support structures of the roof, unlike other materials such as tiles. It is also resistant to corrosion and thus can be used on houses close to the ocean.

Colorbond roofing does not peel or chip easily, giving it a long-lasting, aesthetically pleasing appearance. The colour of the Colorbond material is bonded to the metal, so no painting will be required and will not crack or leak as tiles sometimes do. The substance is also waterproof, meaning that water can easily run off the sides of the roof, reducing leakage and water damage.

Environmentally Friendly

Colorbond material is thermally efficient and will keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter. It radiates less heat and cools down quickly at night, meaning that less electricity will be needed to power air conditioners and heaters. This will reduce your carbon footprint, so Colorbond roofing is an environmentally-friendly choice. It is also 100% recyclable and reduces building site waste.


Colorbond roofing is available in many different profiles, so it should be easy to find one that suits your roof. It is also very lightweight and can therefore span a larger distance than roof tiles. This means you will need fewer supporting beams inside the house, allowing for a more flexible floor plan. In addition, this material has many colours to choose from, giving you creative freedom with a stunning design plan.

Furthermore, constructing this type of roof takes a lot less time than laying tiles, saving you time and money on labour costs. This roofing also requires very little maintenance. Some rainfall every six months should do the trick to keep it clean and in good condition.

If you are needing a roof, Colorbond roofing is the perfect choice. Contact the Roofing Supermarket team for all your roofing needs!

Wednesday, October 28th, 2020

Sometimes, when planning your new roof, you reach a stage where your eyes glaze over, and you are not sure what to choose. Perhaps our favourite choice will help tip the scales.

One of the best performers in the market is Colorbond Roofing. It has super strength despite being lightweight, which means a less expensive supporting structure. Did we mention it’s also good looking? It has colour and tonal versatility which will please your designer or architect.

Colorbond Roofing Strutting Its Stuff

Its strength will withstand strong winds, corrosion, chipping, peeling and cracking. If that’s not enough, it is also non-combustible.

The colour you choose from its versatile colour palette is bonded to the metal, so no painting is needed, now or in the future. The bonding method used is a heating and baking process. This makes it tough and unlikely to crack or leak.

This superhero of roofing also comes in a range of profiles, so it is compatible with many house styles. The roofing ridges are specifically designed to disperse rain quickly, reducing pooling and leak risks.

Another BIG plus with this roofing is that, due to its lightweight, it has very good spanning ability, i.e. fewer columns in your interior! Your interior designer and architect are beaming now. You can enjoy open floor space, unhindered vistas and no funny, quirky columns to “make a feature” of.

When Super Product Becomes Super Hero

If Colorbond was a person, it would be bordering on boasting now as it notches up a few more advantages. It is highly thermally efficient, rain, wind or shine. The light colours perform the best. It is environmentally friendly as metal roofing is 100% recyclable. And as Colorbond is lightweight, it does not need fuel-heavy transport. Due to the nature of the product, it also results in greatly reduced wastage on building sites. This product can wear its underpants on the outside like Superman we think.

For an environmentally friendly, style accommodating, good long term financial option you will find Colorbond is a superb choice.
