Heritage Plumbing Group specialise in installation, replacement and repairs of Colorbond roofing & Zincalume roofing in Melbourne.

When it comes to steel roofing, the two most popular types are Colorbond and Zincalume.

Both roofing products have been crafted by specialist steel companies and have stood the test of time in terms of durability, protection, and design. Our roofing team are experienced in the installation of both materials, and their uses. We are happy to provide you with tailored advice on a roofing solution, based on your specific needs.

Below, we have created a short guide to help you better understand the advantages and differences of both forms of roofing.

Colorbond Roofing

Colorbond steel was created in the mid nineteenth century as an improvement over standard corrugated roofs. Corrugated roofs were durable, yet regular painting was required to maintain their condition, as they tended to corrode. Regular painting was an expensive and time consuming exercise, so an alternative solution was devised. Colorbond steel is pre-painted and contains a strong Zincalume core. Available in a range of colours, Colorbond steel is both aesthetically pleasing, and has the thermal-efficiency benefits that painted roofs have, resulting in less heat absorption and a rapid cool down time.

Zincalume Roofing

Zincalume steel was introduced in the 1970s and is made up of a combination of aluminium, zinc, and silicon. It has an exceptionally long lifespan, averaging around four times that of galvanized steel. Like Colorbond, it is also highly resistant to corrosion, and maintains high thermal-efficiency benefits. The major difference between Colorbond and Zincalume is that Zincalume does not have a layer of custom paint, and is manufactured exclusively in the standard aluminium colour. Alternatively, we can tailor a solution based on a combination of both materials, and are able to work with you to determine what is the most suitable configuration, based on your needs. In addition to Colorbond and Zincalume, we fit all other roofing materials, including galvanised steel, and polycarbonate roof sheets.

Deciding which to choose is a personal decision and must take into account several factors, dependent on your home and other criteria. Another option is to take the median route, meaning that we help you design a solution based upon a combination of both Colorbond roofing and Zincalume roofing. In most cases, selecting this option means that your highly visible roof surfaces are made of Colorbond, while the less visible are made of Zincalume.
