How to Choose a Colorbond Roof Colour:

Colorbond paint is durable and will not flake, peel or blister under harsh weather conditions. There is a wide range of colours available, so you can create the perfect aesthetic appeal for your home. 


Colorbond roofing can suit many different styles of homes from the city to the country. When choosing the color of your roof, consider: 

  • The location of your home: If you live in a coastal area, you may want to consider colours that give your home a beachy feel like blues, greens, white, and sandy. If you live in the city, then more sleek colours like grey, black and white may be suitable. If you live in the country, you could choose a colour that reflects the colours of the landscape around you. Also think about the climate where you live and whether a light colour that reflects heat or a dark colour that absorbs heat would be best.
  • Your home’s style and design: Think about the overall style and design of your home. If your home has a more classic style, then you could choose traditional colours like red, green, cream and grey. If your home is more modern, you can choose from a range of stylish, bold colours.
  • Your home’s interior: If you’re looking for inspiration, think about the colours you have inside your house. Matching the interior and exterior will help create a feeling of continuity and flow.
  • Your roof’s shape: The shape and angle of your roof will also play a role in the overall look of your home, so it’s important to think about when choosing the colour.
