Colorbond Roof Colors

One thing that distinguishes Colorbond from its competitors is the wide range of available colour tones and finishes. Colorbond steel paint uses a special primer base that bakes the color directly into the steel. As such, Colorbond roof colours are extremely durable and will not fade from sunlight or inclement weather. 

 Colorbond first emerged in 1966 and has since changed significantly. Colorbond introduced its new ACTIVATE technology in 2013 and reworked the manufacturing process to make an even more durable version of steel. 

 There is a good reason Colorbond steel is one of the most popular roofing choices in Perth. Colorbond steel is uniquely suited for life in Australia and provides an affordable, reliable, and energy-efficient roofing choice.

Why Choose Colorbond Steel?


Colorbond steel is tough and long-lasting. A Colorbond steel roof can last an entire lifetime if properly maintained. Most traditional shingle roofs only last about 20 years, whereas a Colorbond steel roof can easily last for over 30 years. 

Thermal Efficiency

Aside from durability, Colorbond steel can also reduce your cooling costs. The special steel construction reflects heat, leaving the interior of buildings cool and comfortable. This smart-thermal design is one of the reasons Colorbond steel is so widespread in Australia. 

Corrosion Resistant

Additionally, Colorbond Ultra Steel provides excellent corrosion resistance and protection. Nearly 60% of Australians live near the coast, meaning that Ultra Steel is an ideal choice for a large percentage of the Australian population. 


Colorbond is not only highly functional but also features a long-lasting lustre that few materials can match. BlueScope’s trademark coloring system uses precisely placed particles to capture the characteristic shiny lustre of high-quality steel. With the range of available colors, you can always find something that matches your aesthetic palette. 

Colorbond Warranty

Every purchase of Colorbond steel comes backed with BlueScope’s industry-leading warranty. When you register your Colorbond purchase with BlueScope, they will provide a 36-year warranty against perforation and corrosion.
