Metal Roofing Project on the Surf Coast

December 20, 2014


Metal Roofing and Rammed Earth Beauty

True Blue Roofing have recently completed this new metal roof project on a home located on the Surf Coast in Torquay.  Torquay is a part of the Surf Coast Shire which is a local government area in the Barwon South West region of Victoria.

This house has been designed by the client to be a sustainable home and features the Colorbond Colour Basalt® in the roof design as well as the beautiful Rammed earth walls and vertical cedar shiplap cladding.

The project involved True Blue Roofing supplying and installing the new metal roofing in Colorbond corrugated iron / custom orb in the Basalt® colour, also installing a Klip-Lok / deck iron profile onto the roof of the garage.  Klip-Lok / deck iron is suitable for roofs that have a degree of pitch of 1 degree or greater.  In this case the garage roof pitch was 2 degrees so the deck iron was a suitable choice.  Corrugated iron is only suitable for a roof pitch of 5 degrees or greater which is why it could not be used on the garage roof.

We also supplied and installed Colorbond fascia, quad gutter, box gutter, barges, aprons and cappings in Colorbond Basalt®.  A custom rain water head was designed and made and 100mm x 50mm Colorbond Basalt® downpipes installed.  The client decided that they wanted True Blue Roofing to install 55mm Anticon blanket as insulation for the roof which helps with both the thermal properties of the building and has great noise reduction abilities.

Due to the special nature of this building design incorporating rammed earth walls, True Blue Roofing designed custom Colorbond capping’s to ensure the rammed earth was sealed from the top.  Rammed earth walls should always be sealed from the top.  Colorbond was chosen as the material to provide the weather proofing for the rammed earth as it suited the aesthetics of the home.
