The Roof of your home provides more than just shelter from weather, it provides your home with an extra design element. Whether the roof is curved or straight there is a COLORBOND® solution for your property. COLORBOND® comes in a wide range of colours, styles and finishes, so there is one to suit everyone. We are looking at the different styles of roofing sheet and their individual attributes; comparing Bullnose and Curved sheets for roofing.
Between the Sheets – Bullnose or Curved
Curves are making a comeback, and roof sheeting is the latest to be hit with the design. COLORBOND® has a range of both Bullnose and Curved sheets, each with their own profiles, whether that be concave or underslung, can be double curved or in the Old Gothic Style. Whatever your style, curved roof sheets are the way to go for a sleek modern look. We can also assist you with pre-curved wall sheets for an extra design feature.
The Pros of Curved Roofs
If you are looking for a beautifule design aesthetic for your roof, curved or bullnose roofs are the way to go, with increased high wind strength, less complex support within the roof means you can reclaim some of the overhead space in your home and not to mention the proven thermodynamic benefits of having a COLORBOND® roof on your home; keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer, saving you in energy costs as well.
The cottages of the heritage era can have their roof, patio or verandah restored using bullnose profiles, but with newer technology, the roof structures are designed to last longer and have been developed for Australian conditions. So whether you are looking for a refresh of the federation look, or just a retro feel, bullnose sheets are perfect for your home.
There are also practical, not just design benefits to bullnose roofing. Due to the design of bullnose sheeting, the drop in the sheet prevents build-up of debris on the roof and doesn’t allow pooling of water in spots across the roof. The drop also helps protect those on your verandah from penetrating rain, and sun protection for the interior of your home which can mean your carpet, curtains and other items are less likely to fade as quickly and will suffer less UV damage.
COLORBOND® Curved Roofing
Offering exceptional performance and durability capabilities, curved roofing sheets from COLORBOND® are no different to those with straight lines. COLORBOND® has an extensive colour palette to ensure there is a style to suit every home; with three main categories in the range, Classic, Contemporary and Matt. Reflecting the colours of Australia, COLORBOND® roof sheets are made for splashes of colour, contrasts and there are dozens of combinations to choose from.
If your home is a heritage building, a heritage style building or in a heritage area, you should consult with your local council in case of colour or style guidelines to follow. Generally, the Classic range is the most suited to heritage buildings.
Also be mindful of land development restrictions, and also keep in mind where glare might appear on your roof and if your area is known for particularly harsh sunlight, a matte or light colour mat be the right choice.
