The Benefits of a Colourbond Roof!

April 06, 2020

Are you thinking about acquiring a new roof for your Adelaide home or business? Need some help in choosing the best roofing material for your property?
 
Recently, Colorbond steel roofing has been gaining a lot of popularity amongst Adelaide property owners. It has proven extreme durability in harsh weather conditions, like Adelaide’s. With Colorbond steel roofing you will be getting many other benefits:
 
Design Diversity
 
You do not have to like the industrial steel roofing look to go for a Colorbond roof. The wide variety of colours and designs give you the chance to get a more creative and unique roof. The colours are also bonded to the metal. That is why Colorbond steel roofing does not require a regular repaint.
 
Colorbond steel roofing is also the perfect material for roof designs with none or very little pitch. Compared to other materials used for roofing, such as concrete, Colorbond does not absorb water. Therefore, even with no pitch, the water will smoothly run off your Adelaide Colorbond steel roofing.
 
Low Maintenance
 
As one of the most robust and most durable building materials, Colorbond steel roofing is very low maintenance. It is manufactured in Australia and tested to withstand the harshest weather elements here.
 
Your Adelaide Colorbond steel roofing will not only look good, but it will also last for years. Colorbond steel roofing is termite and corrosion-resistant. This steel roofing material does not peel, crack or chip.
 
Lightweight
 
Having tiles or concrete roofing adds a heavyweight on your Adelaide building. This roof will require a very supportive frame to carry it. When it rains, it will become even heavier as these roofing materials absorb water.
 
On the other hand, Colorbond steel roofing is very lightweight. It will not need an elaborate roof frame for support. You will also save on its transport and installation costs. On rainy days, you can rest assured your Adelaide steel roofing will not fluctuate in weight. Colorbond does not absorb any water.
 
Fireproof
 
If your Adelaide property lies in a bushfire prone area, then Colorbond steel roofing is essential for you. Colorbond is non-combustible. It will not catch fire from any burning ashes flying around.
 
Environmentally Friendly
 
Colorbond steel roofing contains many recycled materials and produces less on-site wastage. It is also 100% recyclable and efficient to transport. All of these factors make Colorbond steel roofing less harmful to the environment.
 
Energy Efficient
 
Roof tiles are cheaper to buy. However, the final cost of your Adelaide roof does not just equal the purchase price. With tiles roofing, you will need to add extra insulation. It will also cost you more to install. Over time, you will also need to repaint the roof.
 
Colorbond steel roofing may cost you more upfront. However, it will save you more afterwards. It does not require extra insulation, regular repaint and is much efficient to install.
