Brisbane is home to plenty of older homes that need re-roofing. Storms, asbestos and general wear and tear can all contribute to replacing the roof. When it comes to time replace your roof, Zen Roofing is your first port of call.
Modern homes tend to use either zincalume or Colourbond roofing over tiles. Colourbond and zincalume roofs are lighter and a low maintenance roof option when compared to the more traditional concrete tiles.
Colourbond Roof Advantages & Disadvantages
Colourbond is a pre-painted, strong steel roof. Created to eliminate the need to paint corroded corrugated roofs, Colourbond is a popular roof choice when people are re-roofing in Brisbane. With a large colour and design range, homeowners can choose what suits their budget and their home.
- Large colour range available.
- Not as price friendly as a plain zincalume roof

- More cost -effective than other steel roofs and good for smaller budgets
