Since 1985, JG King have been building steel frame homes 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.
