Since 1985, JG King have been building homes with a Truecore® steel frame to best protect our homebuyers from fire and termites. Of equal importance has been our choice to build homes in all our collections with a Colorbond® steel roof. Here are twelve reasons why a Colorbond® steel roof is the best choice for your home.

1. Thermal efficiency

Most colours in the Colorbond® range feature Thermatech® solar reflectance technology, designed to reflect more of the sun’s heat on hot days and reduce heat stress on your roof.

2. Sustainability

The long life of Colorbond® steel helps conserve resources and energy. All Colorbond® steel contains recycled content and is 100% recyclable.

3. Tested in Australian weather conditions

Colorbond® steel is assessed at outdoor sites around Australia in conditions of extreme heat, cold, dust, rain, wind and hail. Colorbond® also undergoes corrosion and durability testing.

4. Layers of durability

More than just ‘paint on steel’ Colorbond® is a product made up of various layers that ensure resistance against corrosion, chipping flaking and blistering and that ensure the finish retains its look for longer.

5. Fire Protection

A Colorbond® steel roof could help protect your home from fire compared to other materials because steel is non-combustible.

6. Huge colour selection

Colorbond® offers a huge selection of colours that we can choose from to design homes in contemporary and classic colours all inspired by the colours of Australia.

7. Easy maintenance

All a Colorbond® roof needs to prolong its life and maintain its attractiveness for longer is regular washing with clean, fresh water. Where the paint finish on a roof is naturally washed by rainwater, it does not require any maintenance at all.

8. Reduces our customers’ ongoing heating and cooling costs

Most colours in the standard Colorbond® range feature Thermatech® technology that is designed to reflect more of the sun’s heat on hot days, so air-conditioning and cooling is required less. The roof is an important aspect in the energy efficiency of a home.

9. Contemporary in appearance

Colorbond® considers aesthetics and the latest design trends when working on their product and colour ranges ensuring sleek lines and a modern finish for homes.

10. Suits both pitch and flatter roof

Due to its product design, rain will run off a Colorbond® roof regardless of the roof pitch.

11. Strong & Secure

A Colorbond® roof can withstand the harshest of weather conditions and is long lasting. It holds steady during rains and high winds.

12. Trusted Australian brand

When you purchase Colorbond® steel you are buying products made and backed by BlueScope, one of Australia’s largest manufacturers. BlueScope offers a variety of warranties that keep homebuyers protected for longer.
