Choosing Colorbond Steel Colours

Everyone has their own way of choosing the best colour for the roof on their home, but there are some factors you may like to take into consideration:

  • If the roof is a dominant feature, choose a colour that doesn’t overshadow the look of your home – a mid tone like Surfmist, Woodland Grey , Dune and Ironstone are popular choices.
  • Consider your location. If in a rural area you may like to stick to more natural colours like Bushland, Wilderness, Pale Eucalypt and Jasper; on the coast colours such as Windspray, Deep Ocean and Evening Haze are popular colours shown while in the city, particularly if you have a heritage home, Manor Red, Cottage Green and Classic Cream are great options.

You also need to consider whether you will go for a matching colour for your fence, or a complimentary colour. Colorbond have a range of colours available in fencing that team up well with the roofing colour.

Colorbond is a great roofing material option in Brisbane – it looks great, it fits in with the aesthetic of most homes and will certainly add to the curb appeal of your property. Not only that, Colorbond is well suited to the Brisbane weather, holding up well to storms, wind and heat.
