Sydney Colorbond roofing steeped in history

Nearly half of all new homes built in Australia have roofs made from Colorbond steel, so if you’re thinking of installing Sydney Colorbond roofing on your new outdoor structure – be it a verandah, carport, patio or pergola – or using it to replace your current roof, you’re joining a large club!

Sydney Colorbond roofing is a popular choice for good reason:

  • Its good looking style
  • Colorbond is durable and withstands all sorts of weather, so it can certainly stand up to Sydney’s at-times inclement conditions
  • It’s tough
  • It’s available in more than 20 colours and never needs repainting

Long before there was Colorbond, there was another roofing material called corrugated iron. It was first produced in 1843 in England, when it was found that even a thin sheet of iron could produce a strong material when it was corrugated. The roofing material was soon adopted in Australia, helped by the fact that it was lightweight and stackable, and therefore easy to transport.

While the corrugated iron was protected by zinc coating and would therefore last a long time, it wasn’t long before people began to add paint to improve its appearance. However, unlike the Colorbond of today, the paint needed to be applied regularly to keep it looking its best.

The first Colorbond – which features paint bonded to the galvanised steel – was produced in Australia in 1966.
