These days, more than ever before, Colorbond roofing is a popular choice for people building homes, whether they are upmarket homes or more affordable ones. Once, the roof of choice was tiles, with corrugated iron being left for sheds and commercial buildings. But once Colorbond arrived with its large colour range and ease of transport builders soon found many other advantages of using this material for their homes.
- While the simple silver colour of yesterday’s corrugated iron did not suit brick walls, the large colour range of Colorbond roofing means that there is a colour to suit every style and type of home and every building material. In fact, many people are turning to darker coloured roofs that seem to merge into their city surroundings or provide a foil for the surrounding countryside. The beautiful colours in Colorbond roofing have been derived from the many elements of the Australian countryside. Mountain mist, sea-spray, soil colours, eucalypts, rocks and even the sky have all played a part in the colour range.
