A Guide to Installing a Durable COLORBOND® Roof 

If you’re looking to install a new roof on your home or business space in Australia, COLORBOND® steel is one of the most popular and practical roofing options. 

COLORBOND® is lightweight yet strong, available in different colours, and requires little maintenance. This guide will walk you through the key steps involved in installing a COLORBOND® roof.


COLORBOND® is a brand of coated steel manufactured in Australia by BlueScope. It uses a special five-layer coating system(a steel base, metallic coating, pre-treatment layer, primer to reduce corrosion, and reflective topcoat) that makes it highly corrosion-resistant, fire retardant, and reflective. The result is an extremely durable and long-lasting roofing material. COLORBOND® is available in over 20 colours so you can choose a shade that suits the style of your home or commercial space.

Benefits of a COLORBOND® Roofing System

Exceptional Durability – It can last up to 50 years or even longer.

Resilience in Harsh Weather – It withstands harsh conditions such as rain, hail, and strong winds.

Extensive Color Options – You can choose from a wide range of colour options to complement your style.

Strength and Lightweight Design – It is lightweight yet incredibly strong and impact-resistant.

Effective Noise Reduction – Offers excellent noise reduction from rain and storms.

Energy Efficiency – Reflects heat, reduces cooling costs and enhances energy efficiency.

Low Maintenance – Requires minimal maintenance compared to traditional tile roofs.

Before Installation

You should hire a highly professional COLORBOND® roofing contractor to assess your existing roof structure to make sure it can support the weight of the new COLORBOND® roof. They will also determine exactly how much material will be required based on roof size and layout.

It’s also a good idea to check with your local council regarding any permits required for re-roofing. And make sure to purchase your COLORBOND® sheets from a reputable supplier.

Installing the COLORBOND® Roof in Australia

Here are the key steps professional roofers take to install a COLORBOND® steel roof:

COLORBOND® roof specialists in Sydney and other areas carefully measure the total roof area to calculate how much COLORBOND® material will be required for the job. 

The experts thoroughly clean and prepare the existing roof deck prior to installation. They remove any old roof coverings like shingles or tiles along with flashings, felts or membranes. They also inspect the exposed deck and make any necessary repairs to damaged or rotten sections.

Next, they install new underlayments such as roofing felt or ice and water barriers. They attach battens over the underlayment to provide a fastening point for the metal roof sheets.

The COLORBOND® roofing installers use specialised metal shears to cut the COLORBOND® steel sheets to the appropriate sizes and dimensions needed to cover the roof planes. They carefully lay out the cut sheets on the roof to ensure proper coverage and alignment.

Next, they begin fastening the COLORBOND® roofing sheets starting from the lowest edge of the roof slope and working upwards systematically to the peak. They utilise clamps to hold the sheets in position. 

The roofing experts install pre-formed COLORBOND® ridge capping along the peak of the roof once sheets are in place. Ridge caps interlock over joints and provide a watertight seal. They also apply a roofing sealant for additional leak protection.

Next, they cut and bend COLORBOND® flashings to fit around protrusions like chimneys, vents and walls. Flashings redirect water and prevent leaks at intersections and joints. 

Lastly, they finish up by installing new rain gutters, downspouts and accessories like leaf guards. And, they seal any remaining fastener points or openings and also inspect the finished roof for proper water drainage.
