Building a New Home or Extending?
When it comes to building a new residential or commercial building it is paramount that only the best Australian made materials are used to withstand the harsh climates. This is why the majority of new homes are now being built with BlueScope COLORBOND® and ZINCALUME® Steel.
Not only does Colorbond steel give you that great aesthetic effect but it also ensures the saftey of your home. If you're after a new Colorbond or Zincalume roof talk to our friendly staff today about the best product for your next project.
Galvanised Iron to Steel
Galvanised iron is the most commonly found material on older roofs throughout the east coast of Australia, and even more commonly on old style Queenslanders. Galvanised iron, also known to roofers as Gal, is now a material of the past.
Due to the length of sheets being shorter and needing to over-lap each other, moisture can get trapped between the over-lap caused by cappilary attraction therefore causing the material to corrode. This, over a period of time, will eventually cause roof leaks and poor structural integrity. Metal roof sheets are now custom made to suit any style and size of roof - this eliminates the need to lap the sheets.

Tile to Steel
Replacing your tile roof to steel will not only eliminate costs of ongoing maintenance but solve those hard to find roof leaks. Replacing your roof with steel also reduces a large amount of weight off the structure of your home and will give you greater structural integrity.
