5 Benefits of Zincalume Roofing

Zincalume roofing has become a popular roofing option for homeowners. This is because it has numerous benefits compared to other roofing materials. In this blog post, we will discuss the five benefits of Zincalume roofing and why it is a smart choice.


What is Zincalume?

Zincalume was introduced into the Australian market in the 1970s boasting of its long life-span, high resistance to corrosion and high thermal efficiency. Zincalume roofing is made of high-quality steel coated with a blend of aluminium and zinc, which makes it resistant to rust, corrosion, and weathering. It is almost 4x more durable than galvanised steel. 


Benefits of Zincalume:

  • Affordable: Zincalume roofing is an affordable option for Brisbane homeowners. Due to the limited colour palette that Zincalume roofs come in, it is a cheaper option than Colorbond.

  • Easy to Maintain: Zincalume roofs require minimal maintenance, making it a cost-effective option for homeowners in Brisbane. It does not require regular roof repair or replacement, and it is easy to clean. All you need to do is wash it with water and mild detergent to remove any dirt or debris.

  • Tough and Durable: Zincalume is one of the toughest steel products available. Its zinc, aluminium and silicon components make it exceptionally durable. It’s also highly resistant to corrosion and scratching, and doesn’t damage easily.

  • Long lifespan: Zincalume’s toughness also gives it a long lifespan. This is a clear advantage over other roofing materials. In fact, Zincalume steel lasts four times longer than galvanised steel.

  • Environmentally Friendly: Another advantage of Zincalume is that it’s an environmentally friendly option. The material is long-lasting and can be recycled, making it more environmentally sustainable.
