There’s a quick answer to that: a new metal roof on Central Coast‘s home is environmentally friendly in itself AND makes your home more environmentally friendly. Here are the reasons why a Colorbond new roof is a fantastic choice for your home!
A metal roof can last 40 years. A Colorbond roof can last 70 years and even more if it is maintained and recoated after 40, 50 or 60 years. It rarely finds its way into landfill.
Colorbond has 12,000 panels across Australia in its assessment programs. The panels are placed in moderate to very severe marine environments, and from tropical to industrial locations.
Depending on the production methodology metal roofs can be very flexible. This is highly advantageous in strong wind conditions. Some metal roofs maintain their integrity in gusts up to 140 miles per hour. Their flexibility also increases their strength rating against impacts.
A big plus is that they don’t attract seeds taking root and they avoid frequently scheduled roof maintenance and servicing requirements. After 40 to 60 years you might need to change some rusty nails.
The product Colorbond is super durable and super resilient even to our tough marine climates.
A new metal roof will not catch on fire due to a neighbouring fire or lightning strike. The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation did research into residential boundary fencing in bushfire conditions. The results showed “a steel fence offers greater protection to people’s homes against bushfire than other alternative materials because of its non-combustibility”…. Colorbond was the top performer in all exposure conditions even faced with a 30 minute flame immersion test.
Another great benefit of metal new roofs is that they reflect solar radiant heat. This can save you a whopping 10-25% of your energy bill. Five of the colours in the Colorbond steel range qualify as solar reflective roofing under the Green Star Communities tool.
99% of the Colorbond colourways have solar reflectance technology. This reflects away more of the sun’s heat on those crackling hot days, so your home needs less air cooling. Additionally, less heat is absorbed, hence less stressful expansion and contraction takes place.
The 21st century is all about the environment, recycling and reusing. Metal roofs have 25-95% recycled content depending on the brand you are selecting and the composition of the product. Even more attractive is the fact that they are wholly, 100% recyclable at the end of their life as a roof!
The fact that it has lasted that long means that no new production carbon footprint was needed for your roofing requirements.
When selling a house on the Central Coast, a new roof pushes up the perceived value of the house massively! Knowing that the house has an environmentally friendly roof which is saving the owner 25% of his energy bill will definitely make your house more attractive compare to those with other types of roofing.
