Colorbond Roof Material
There are two main materials on the Australian market that are used in roofing: Zinc and Copper (i.e. stainless steel cover). Zinc roof is part of the family of sheet metal covers that has duration up to 90 years. The Copper, on the other side has a ‘Lifetime’ duration of 100+ years.
Zinc $15/m2 – $20/m2
Copper $11 to $25 per square foot
Colorbond Size and Choice
In order to renew your roof, you can choose to either buy the Colorbond roofing per Sheet or per Square Meter. The costs vary from one to another depending on the characteristics of each.

Colorbond Roof Management and Painting
In Australia, a new Colorbond roof installation cost goes from $44/m2 to $55/m2. Still, many companies charge an average price of $50/m2. On the other hand, repainting the roof represents a certain investment, but this makes it possible to prolong its life. If the roof is still in good condition, then installing roof paint is an interesting alternative to complete roof renovation.
Therefore, professional Colorbond roof painting requires a price between $55 and $70 per hour, depending on the worker’s professionalism and the required prep work such as roof cleaning and repairs. Professional and Good Quality painting can last up to 100 years.
Why is it important to clean your Roof?
As long as you maintain and clean your roof, you can keep it for a long time without having to renovate or completely change it. Depending on the roofing material, the roof cleaning should be done more or less regularly, with different products, and will help you to keep a beautiful roof for 20, 40, 70… 100 years!
We do not always think about it when we have recently put a new roof, but planning a regular roof cleaning will keep your roof looking like it is original. In addition, it helps limit the energy consumption of your home. A simple roof cleaning will consist of scrubbing the cover with a brush and water (i.e. manual brushing) and depositing a Defoamer agent against algae, mosses, lichens and so on.
