Benefits of Metal Roofing
Metal roofing is favoured by builders and homeowners alike who appreciate its simplicity and long-lasting appeal. If you're still tossing up between roof tiles and metal roofing, here are a few benefits of the latter that may help sway your opinion.
Durable: The steel used for Australian roofing is guaranteed to protect your home for anywhere from 30 right up to 70 or 80 years, depending on environmental conditions.
Affordable: Metal costs just a fraction of the price of tiles per square metre. Metal is also more lightweight, making re-roofing a more straightforward job with fewer support beams required to take the strain.
Low maintenance: A regular wash with fresh water is all that's required to prolong the good looks of metal roofing. Just be sure to keep the gutters and roof clear of debris.
Eco-friendly: Most metal roofing, including COLORBOND® steel, is made using recycled materials, and all steel is 100 per cent recyclable. In some cases, the discarded metal can be reused without any reprocessing.
Warranties: Warranties will always differ from product to product and from brand to brand. However, you're looking at a minimum 30-year warranty on any metal roofing designed for Australian homes.
Types of Metal Roofing
Jim's Roofing specialises in the installation, restoration and repairs of metal roofing, gutters, downpipes and metal fascias.
Metal roofing itself is a broad term often used to describe most materials outside of concrete, slate and terracotta tiles. More specifically, when talking about metal roofing, we're talking about steel. In Australia, we're almost always referring to COLORBOND® steel or ZINCALUME® steel, the two most common forms of steel used for roofing. Let's take a closer look:
COLORBOND® Steel Roofing
COLORBOND® steel is universally recognised as a leader in metal roofing. As part of the BlueScope Steel brand and previously part of BHP, COLORBOND® steel roofing has been a staple of the Australian landscape for over 50 years and it’s no surprise as to why:
Corrugated steel built to last:
Their corrugated steel is renowned for its performance in all weather extremes including heat, wind, hail, dust and rain. It's also a thermally efficient material, bushfire zone-compliant and backed by lengthy warranties.
Huge selection of colours:
There's a lot to like about the rigid steel, although arguably what Aussies favour most is the excellent selection of COLORBOND® steel colours. With over 20 powder coated colours to choose from, you won't have to settle for anything less than ideal. You can even mix and match COLORBOND® steel colours between the roof, guttering and fascias if you desire.
Conveniently available Australia-wide:
COLORBOND® steel is both a manufacturer of materials for roofing and a steel supplier for many other leading Australian brands. With stockists available across Australia, it’s easy to find a COLORBOND® steel supplier. Even if you go for another brand, the chances are that COLORBOND® steel is involved.
We can provide you with roof repairs perfectly matched to your existing setup with a quick turnaround. Here at Jim’s Roofing we can repair, replace and restore your COLORBOND® steel roof, doing our best to get there within 1 hour of your call*!
LYSAGHT® Steel and Stratco
So why would you choose another brand if the steel is provided by COLORBOND® steel? Other leading Australian manufacturers, including LYSAGHT® steel and Stratco offer individuality along with the reliable COLORBOND® steel performance.
Unique Profiles and Designs:
COLORBOND® steel sticks closely to its familiar corrugated profile which resembles parallel ridges or waves. LYSAGHT® steel and Stratco bring fresh profiles and designs to consumers with patented designs including TRIMDEK®, SPANDEK®, Maximus 22™, Maximus 23™ and Smartspan to name a few. More profiles mean more variety for you and your home.
LYSAGHT® steel and Stratco products including steel roofing, gutters and downpipes are readily available from suppliers located right across Australia. Their proven materials are suitable for all environments and all architectural styles.
Legacy of Steel:
LYSAGHT® steel is responsible for creating COLORBOND® steel back in the 1960s, ZINCALUME® steel in the 70s and was behind many other steel innovations that affected the global construction industry. Stratco has over 70 years of manufacturing metal for Australian conditions. These two founding brands helped shape the industry and continue to thrive and innovate on a global scale.
ZINCALUME® Steel Roof
ZINCALUME® steel is a rising player on the roofing scene. It’s a popular material for constructing sheds, garden beds and outdoor living arrangements with the latest and toughest generation suitable for roofing.
One Tough Customer:
ZINCALUME® steel sheet metal is one of the toughest residential steel products available and is highly resistant to corrosion. It’s made with an aluminium-zinc alloy, silicone and magnesium coating that further protects the material from scratches and scuffs.
More Affordable Than COLORBOND® Steel:
A ZINCALUME® steel roof will closely resemble a COLORBOND® steel roof, but is more affordable, making it an attractive option. It doesn’t quite reach the thermal efficiency of COLORBOND® steel; thankfully roof insulation takes care of the heat and cold weather.
BlueScope Steel is the current owner of ZINCALUME® steel technology. The global brand is so sure of its durability that they are backing it with warranties of up to 36 years. With a ZINCALUME® steel roof, you can rest easy knowing that your home will be protected from the elements for decades to come.
