Three Reasons to Replace Roof Tiles with Colorbond

Not that there’s anything wrong with tiled roofs of course! But Colorbond metal roofs are on another level. Let’s get straight onto it.

The Colorbond (often misspelled as colour bond) trend has indeed taken off in recent years. With residential homes and commercial properties alike switching to Colorbond, it’s easy to wonder why so many people see the advantages of this new material.

Metal roofs certainly have their flaws, and the right roof for you depends greatly on your circumstances. A quick comparison, however, shows clearly why some have chosen to replace tiles with colour bonded steel.

Colorbond Is Reliable and Resilient

Colorbond roofing is a modern alternative to the cement tiles or more expensive terracotta roofing that cover many Australian homes. With heavy rains, harsh winds, and intense heat, Australian weather has many ways to try a roof.

The durability of your roofing material is one of the most important factors to consider when replacing a roof.

Unlike tiles, Colorbond steel is resistant to cracking and imperfections and requires little to no maintenance to preserve its structural integrity and look.

It’s reliable under harsh weather conditions and is also a capable insulating material. When it comes to heat, the materials used are also resistant to fire and combustion.

Colorbond Is Good For The Environment

Another benefit of the insulation that comes with a correctly installed Colorbond roof is the reduced energy use for heating and cooling. In addition to saving you energy costs, Colorbond roofing is 100% recyclable and non-toxic.

These environmentally friendly materials used by Harley and Sons Roofing makes Colorbond preferable to many of the modern alternatives on the market.

Even the lightweight design that makes this roofing so sleek and contemporary makes it more energy efficient to ship and cuts down on wear on the supporting house structure.

Colorbond Is Light And Bright

The light look is good for flexibility too. Colorbond roofing can be designed to fit a variety of architectural styles and needs. The sturdy material makes it easy to conform to different roofs.

The most prominent limitation is pitch. A roof with a significant angle might lead to leaking or other issues. For most layouts, however, it’s an efficient and customisable solution.

Perhaps the best feature of Colorbond roofing, however, is right in the name. The ability to mix and match vibrant and lasting colours is a unique feature of Colorbond.

If you want to open your roofing project to more colour possibilities, Colorbond is an excellent choice for you. It’s not as classic as original tiles might look, but this sleeker modern design is a trend for a reason.

… Colorbond Is A Great Investment

OK, we said three reasons but we can’t miss out on the fact that it provides you with great ROI – not the $$$ kind but more of all of the above + a 20-year manufacturers warranty + being maintenance free.

It’ll definitely set you back a bit more upfront but it’s something you can leave and not worry about for years to come.
