The main disadvantage of Zincalume is that it’s only available in one colour and can’t be customised to suit the style of your home. It can also make your home less energy efficient.
What is Colorbond?
Colorbond was created as a solution to corrugated roofs which corroded easily and needed regular maintenance. It’s strong yet lightweight and built to last. It’s also available in a wide range of colours to suit your home.
The disadvantage of Colorbond is that it’s more expensive to install. However, the low maintenance costs help to make it more affordable. You can view the different Colourbond colours available at Roo Roofing here.
What's the difference?
While Zincalume and Colorbond are both strong, durable and long-lasting, there are two key differences: colour and price.
Colorbond is more expensive, but comes in a range of colours. Zincalume is more affordable, but only available in a standard grey colour.
The best option for you depends on what is more important to your home: affordability or aesthetics. If you are looking to install a metal roof in your home and need some advice, talk to the experts at Roo.
