ENERGY – Using COLORBOND® Steel as energy efficient roofing materials can assist in reducing your heating and cooling costs and if you are combining COLORBOND® Steel with Thermatech® technology and insulation this will help your building remain climate controlled all year round. Lighter coloured COLORBOND® Steel in particular, radiates less heat during summer and can mean any residual heat is less as well.
ENVIROMENTALLY–FRIENDLY – Metal roofing is considered a green material because it can be recycled, reused and is sustainable and almost maintenance free. Steel is one of the world’s most reused materials. Spruiking durability and lightweight designs, it’s efficient to transport and manufacture. Sheets are pre-cut to minimise wastage and reduce the impact on the site and its local environment.
LONGEVITY – South Australia has a dry and hot climate and after 45 years of research and development COLORBOND® Steel has proven for many years just how durable metal roofing can be.
VERSATILITY – COLORBOND® Steel sheets come in a wide variety of colours, profiles, textures, finishes and styles and can be shaped to your needs, suiting both heritage and modern style homes. You can also co-ordinate the kids cubby house, fences and even the dog house with other COLORBOND® Steel products.

Since COLORBOND® Steel is generally installed in continuous sheets, which removes possible entry points for water to leak into your home as well. With unpredictable and extreme Australian weather conditions COLORBOND® Steel provides a layer of security against fallen branches and debris from storms.
