Some of the lighter colours are available in Double sided so you can enjoy the colour on the top side and bottom side of the patio roof.
Below is a table which shows the range of 'Solar Absorptance' of the 20 COLORBOND® colours. (Please note that Sanbank, Headland, Loft, Bushland and Wilderness are longer available.) Clearly, the lighter colours absorb less heat. This means a lighter coloured roof will provide for a cooler area below the roof as most of the heat is reflected rather than absorbed.
The Building Code of Australia (BCA) has classified roof colour on the basis of their solar absorptance, referred herein as very light, light and dark.
