But why choose a metal roof for your new home?
COLORBOND® steel is durable and resilient to Australia's harsh climate and its long life helps conserve resources and energy that may otherwise be invested in products with a shorter life span.
All COLORBOND® steel contains recycled content and the steel in COLORBOND® steel is 100% recyclable.
In some cases it can be reused without reprocessing, again saving on energy and resource use.
Many people know that the colour of your roof can make a difference to your cooling bill and no less than five of the colours in the COLORBOND® steel range qualify as solar reflective (light coloured) roofing under the Green Star Communities tool.
But there’s another way that COLORBOND® steel can help make your home more energy efficient.
Every colour (except Night Sky®) in the standard COLORBOND® steel range features Thermatech® solar reflectance technology.
Thermatech® technology is designed to reflect more of the sun's heat on hot, sunny days, which can mean less dependence on air-conditioning, plus reduced heat stress for your roof.
Simple maintenance of COLORBOND® steel by regular washing with clean, fresh water will not only prolong its life but also maintain its attractiveness for longer periods thus protecting your asset.
Settings where the paint finish is naturally washed by rainwater do not usually require this maintenance, e.g. roofing.
However, some areas such as wall cladding under eaves, the top of garage doors and the underside of eave gutters are often not washed by rainwater, and so require some attention.
Ensure these ‘unwashed’ areas are hosed down at least every six months and more frequently in coastal areas where marine salt spray is prevalent, and in areas where high levels of industrial fallout occur. It is also important to ensure that there is no build-up of debris, such as soil and mulch against COLORBOND® steel products.
If cared for in this way, your building components made from COLORBOND® steel should give many years of easy maintenance life.
