What Makes COLORBOND® Steel Roofing Different?

COLORBOND® by BlueScope is an Australian-made steel roofing product that has been specifically designed to achieve high performance against the harsh and unpredictable Australian environment.

COLORBOND® steel incorporates five material layers in order to consistently deliver outstanding results and achieve maximum durability for your patio - no matter the location. 

These five material layers are:

  1.  A steel base that has been manufactured to meet Australian-grade levels of strength. 
  2.  A metallic coating that incorporates Activate® technology for improved corrosion resistance.
  3.  A layer of pre-treatment to optimise the below adhesion coatings.
  4.  A corrosion inhibitive primer. 
  5.  And a topcoat of exterior-grade paint that has been specifically developed to resist chipping, flaking and blistering.

What Are the Benefits of a COLORBOND® Steel Patio Roof?

One of the greatest benefits of utilising COLORBOND® steel in your patio build is that it can help keep your home cooler in summer.

COLORBOND® is able to reduce the level of heat entering your patio roof through its Thermatech® solar reflectance technology. This energy-smart technology reflects the sun’s heat, meaning your outdoor space will stay cool even on the sunniest of summer days. 

Incorporating COLORBOND® steel into your patio area will also help block direct sunlight from entering through adjacent windows and sliding doors, meaning less dependence on air-conditioning during the summer - passing cost savings on your annual energy costs on to you.

What To Consider When Choosing Your COLORBOND® Roofing

When deciding on a COLORBOND® steel colour and finish, it’s important that you choose one that compliments and matches your home’s existing colour pallet. 

When selecting your patio roofing colour, pay close attention to your gutters, flashings and downpipes. Consider if you want to match the colour of your COLORBOND® patio roof to these, or whether you’d rather create a sense of depth by selecting contrasting colours.

Furthermore, if COLORBOND® steel has already been used for your home’s roof, would you like to create consistency throughout your entire home by selecting the same COLORBOND® colour, or would you rather turn your patio into a standout feature?

Additionally, three of COLORBOND® steel sheets are double-sided, so you can enjoy contrasting colours on both the top and bottom of your patio roof. The double-sided colours available are Paperbark®, Surfmist® and Classic Cream™.
