How Do I Choose a Colorbond Colour for My Roof?

Choosing a Colorbond Roofing Colour

​Congratulations, you’ve decided to go with Colorbond steel for your roof - it’s a great decision. Now comes the fun part; choosing the right colour.

Colorbond comes in an amazing array of colour choices but sometimes having so many choices can actually make the final decision that much harder.

The difficulties of choosing the right colours are increased even further because:

  • Colour choices are highly subjective, ‘one person’s meat is another person’s poison’, as they say
  • Colour samples are notoriously either inaccurate or too small to get an accurate concept of how the final result will look
  • Our feelings about our colour choices can change with time and in different lights

Fortunately, there are some aspects of good design and some great online tools that can help you clarify your thoughts, narrow down the choices, and pinpoint the exact colour you need for a really great-looking roof.

No.1 Roofing and Building Supplies is one of the largest suppliers of Colorbond roofing materials and accessories in the Sydney area.

This ultimate guide to choosing your Colorbond colours is just an extension of our outstanding expert advice and consultation service.

Concrete tiles have been used on Australian homes for some 70 years but Colorbond metal roofing has also built a solid reputation for durability and dependability.

There is one question you need to ask yourself...

  • Benefits or pros and cons of tile versus Colorbond
  • Costs - price difference between Colorbond and tile roof?

  • Installation difficulties - which is easier to install?
  • Resale / property value - will a new Colorbond roof increase the value of my property more than a tile roof?
