Best Colorbond Roof Colours

When it comes to new roofing there are so many Colorbond roof colours to choose from you won’t know where to start. From contempory to classic to matte, there are plenty of options to mix and match with both your home style and the your surrounding environment.

Knowing that you have plenty of choices, how do you choose the best Colorbond roof colour for your home? We’ve put together a little guide as to why the roof colour you choose matters.

Curb Appeal Effect

You may not realise it, but the roof of your home accounts for a fair amount of the exterior appearance – in most homes this sits at 40% but can be more. It is one of the first things seen by people passing by and by potential buyers. Ensuring you choose a roof colour that matches your home’s architectural style and colour is important.

How Do You Feel?

It’s an often surprising fact that the colour of your home, and therefore the colour of your roof, can affect how you feel. Because the colour of your home and roof are the first things you see when you come home, choose colours that make you feel calm and relaxed are a good choice.

Check Your  Colour Before Purchase.

Before purchasing Colorbond steel, we recommend checking your chosen colour with a sample of the product to ensure it meets the desired appearance. The colours shown in marketing materials may not represent actual product colours and can be affected by varying solar absorptance properties. All Colour names are registered trade marks of BlueScope Steel Limited and all Matt finish colors are trade marks of BlueScope Steel Limited. To accurately represent product colours, we recommend checking your chosen colour before making a purchase.

How Hot is It?

A well used phrase, particularly in Queensland during summer! But it doesn’t need to be uncomfortable inside your home. The right Colorbond colour can make all the difference to the temperature inside your home, which in turn, can impact your power bill. A lighter coloured roof can help reflect heat away from your home, while a darker coloured roof will absorb the heat and make it warmer inside.

In Queensland, it is recommended that a lighter coloured roof is a better option. While it might be a little cooler during winter, it will certainly help keep the temperature down during the warmer months.
