When it comes to designing the perfect outdoor patio, you need to consider a number of different factors that go into the design and build process. For example, the type of materials you use can drastically change the design choices that are available to you and also the range of colours you can pick from.
That’s why Colorbond has proven to be a fantastic option for patio roofing thanks to its wide variety of shades and styles. It was created in Australia so it’s perfect for outdoor patios that can withstand our weather, and it’s perfectly tuned to be long-lasting and durable.
What is Colorbond?
Colorbond is a type of steel that is manufactured by BlueScope Steel, a flat product steel producer that operates in Australia. It’s a steel roofing material that is coated to provide extra durability, resistance to weather conditions and also colour. Compared to traditional tiled roofs, it can offer more strength, it lasts longer, very little maintenance is required and it’s also friendly to any design ideas that you may have in mind due to the colouring properties.
Colorbond has 22 shades to pick from and it’s divided into classic and contemporary colours. There are also five new matte finishes that have become popular and also double sided shades. This gives you plenty of options to choose from when designing your brand new patio roof and allows you to match the colouring scheme to the rest of your home.
