Roof Construction in Torquay features Colorbond®

Marvel at this new Colorbond Roof in Torquay

True Blue Roofing Pty Ltd have just completed this new Colorbond Roof for a new home in Torquay, Victoria.  The gallery of completed photos for this home goes to show how amazing a Colorbond corrugated / custom orb roof can look!  It reminds us of the TV ad for Colorbond way back in 2006 when the man dashes out the front to pick up his paper off the lawn in his underpants and gets side tracked ‘marvelling” at how beautiful his Colorbond® roof looks!  The ad quotes “you’ve made the right choice” and well I think these home owners in Torquay did too!

This new home project involved the supply and installation of new Colorbond custom orb / corrugated iron, ridges / barges / valleys / flashings / fascia and quad gutters all in Colorbond Woodland Grey®.

The client’s choice of using Colorbond in this case really highlights the roof design, a feature you just can’t achieve with a tiled roof.

When deciding about whether to choose Colorbond or Tiles, there are several benefits to choosing Colorbond over tiles, some of which include:

  • Water catchment – You will get better harvesting of water off a Colorbond roof than a concrete tiled roof, this is due to the concrete tiles having a degree of water absorbency before they start to shed water.
  • Visual Look – Colorbond roofing provides a modern, stylish, clean lines finish that suit contemporary, heritage and modern homes
  • Weight – Colorbond is much lighter than concrete tiles so is less stress on the structure of the home.
  • Maintenance – You will generally have less issues maintaining a Colorbond roof over tiles
  • BAL / Bushfire regulations prefer Colorbond as it is easier to seal against ember attack
  • Pest / Rodent prevention – Colorbond is easier to seal against rodents
