Choosing metal roofing installation is one of the best decisions you can make for your home.
Metal offers a huge list of advantages over other roofing materials like tiles or shingles. However, that doesn’t mean any old metal sheeting is up to the task of being used for your roof!
It’s important to choose the right materials for any building job. And metal roofing installation is no different.
At Watermaster Roofing, we choose COLORBOND metal roofing for our metal roofing projects. This allows us to provide a roof that’s tougher and of higher quality than just about anything else on the market.
Why do we choose COLORBOND for metal roofing installation in Melbourne?
COLORBOND is tough as nails – possibly tougher!
COLORBOND metal roofing is found all over Australia – it might end up being installed in chilly Hobart, blazing hot Alice Springs, and humid Townsville.
As such, it needs to be extremely tough and long-lived – particularly for our unique climate.
All COLORBOND steel is thoroughly assessed before it goes to market. That includes lab experiments, as well as real-world field testing all over the country. It’s even specially-formulated for fire resistance.
Industry-leading treatments and coating
Contrary to what you might presume, metallic silver isn’t the only choice when it comes to metal roofing.
COLORBOND offers a huge range of different colours and finishes.
COLORBOND encases all their roofing sheets in unique coatings, pretreatments, primers and topcoats. This protects your roof from a range of plumbing problems like:
And yes – that includes black metal roofing, too!
COLORBOND is energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly
One of the advantages of metal roofing is its thermal efficiency, especially in warm climates.
Metal is more reflective than tile, meaning that a metal roof is actually the superior choice for keeping your home cool.
Additionally, its thinness means that it cools down much quicker, which can be a huge perk during summer.
On top of all that, COLORBOND metal roofing also includes a unique coating known as Thermatech.
The upshot of this is that a COLORBOND metal roof will reflect more of the sun’s heat than competing brands.
This can reduce your reliance on air conditioning, bring your power bill down, and help you make a small reduction to your impact on the planet.
And while we’re on the topic of the planet, COLORBOND metal roofing also contains recycled content and is 100% recyclable itself.
COLORBOND roofing is low maintenance
Metal roofing in general is much easier to maintain than tiles. Metal doesn’t attract moss, is less likely to leak and has far fewer nooks and crannies for mould to grow.
And thanks to all the protective coatings and layers, COLORBOND roofing is even easier to maintain than other types of metal roofing!
With a COLORBOND metal roof, you can enjoy decades of strong roofing with minimal maintenance.
