Why use Colorbond Roofing in Melbourne?

It’s a question people will be confronted with when planning a renovation or new build. The answers are many and varied and no one answer is really right or wrong.

Visual Appeal

Let’s start with the visual. Colorbond roofing in Melbourne is a popular choice for those wanting to give their home an individual look. A quick look around your neighbourhood will show the fantastic range of colours in the Colorbond Roofing range.

Period homes are a great example of the use of Colorbond roofing in Melbourne. Traditional colours on a period home can add a sense of authenticity while modern colours can give period homes a contemporary feel without losing any of the beauty associated with period details.

Colorbond roofing in Melbourne can contribute to the environmental footprint of the dwelling. If you have a white (Surfmist or Coolmax) Colorbond roof, the dwelling will stay cooler longer and cool off quicker ultimately affecting your cooling (and heating) costs. The reverse applies for darker Colorbond roofing colours like Monument.


Colorbond roofing is not as heavy as terracotta or concrete tiles, in fact, it is almost 55kg per m2 lighter! This means that your roof won’t impact as heavily on the supporting structure of your dwelling. It also is easier to keep possums out of than tiles!

Have you considered maintenance?

There’s nothing much to do with a metal roof. Just keep it clear of leaves and debris and it will serve you well for many years.

Finally, Colorbond roofing comes with a 15 year Product Warranty and if you use a licensed roof plumber for the installation, Colorbond roofing in Melbourne will also come with a six year workmanship warranty by way of a Compliance Certificate issued by your roof plumber.
