The roof is something we take for granted – unless it leaks or is damaged – and yet our roof affords us one of our most basic needs, shelter.

At Paragon Roof and Guttering we install COLORBOND® steel roofs for our clients because we consider it the best roofing material on the market.

Here are four fast facts about the COLORBOND®  metal roof –

1. Metal suits the Australian climate

Metal roofs expand with the heat and contract in cooler weather. They respond to weather extremes making them ideal for our climate. The COLORBOND® steel range has now been designed with Thermatech® technology, which cleverly reflects more of the heat, great for our hot Australian days. This makes you less dependent on air-conditioning and saves on power costs.

2. Metal is eco-friendly

Because metal is so durable it reduces the need for replacement material making it is an eco-friendly roofing system. As COLORBOND® steel is extremely resilient to our climate it will have a longer lifespan than many other products. Added to this, COLORBOND® steel is 100% recyclable and contains recycled content.

3. They aren’t noisy

Contrary to popular opinion, metal roofs are not noisy. While we may all have memories of the sound of rain on the old tin roof, modern metal roofs (when properly installed) aren’t any noisier than any other type of roof. A metal roof can actually absorb and silence noise from bad weather.

4. Metal roofing is not flammable or combustible

While some people might think a metal roof is more vulnerable to lightning, this is not true. Yes, metal is a conductor but lightning will generally be drawn to the highest object in your suburb. The good thing about metal roofing is that it’s not flammable or combustible and in the unlikely event of a lightning strike, it would disburse energy safely away through the structure.
