Roofing Materials Best Suited To the Brisbane Climate

Roofs in Brisbane face harsh climate conditions, from strong sunshine to heavy rains and summer storms. 

Choosing a roofing material that can withstand this climate is essential for ensuring the structural integrity of your home. 

So, which roofing materials are best suited to the Brisbane climate?

Metal Roofing

Metal roofing is very popular in Brisbane. Whether it’s Colorbond, Zincalume, galvanised or stainless steel, metal roof materials are known to be durable. 

Quality metal roofs can last for 40-50 years. They are resistant to damage from water, wind, fire, rot, mildew, and insects, and can also reflect heat, which helps to make your house cool and energy efficient. 

Tile Roofing

Tile roofing is also well suited to Brisbane’s climate. Tiles require low maintenance and are long wearing. They can last for up to 50 years for terracotta and 20 years for concrete. Roof tiles also don’t rust or corrode, making them perfect for coastal areas like Brisbane’s bayside.

Slate Roofing

Slate roofing is a great option for longevity and sustainability. It can last for up to 150 years, making it one of the most environmentally friendly roofing materials. It’s also highly energy efficient, keeping your home cooler in summer and warmer in winter. 

Slate is also resistant to fire, making it a good choice if you live in a bushfire risk area.
