Years ago, before metal roofing, roof maintenance was a difficult and expensive project. You had to inspect individual shingles for damage after every rain, and then make repairs immediately, which was often a tedious and time-consuming process. Well, metal roofing has changed all of that, thankfully because it is an all-weather and hardy solution that ensures home safety and the security of your family.
And when searching for the various types of metal roofing, it doesn’t get any better than the Colorbond brand. In fact, residential and commercial property owners across the country prefer this roofing option for several reasons.
Tough and Resilient
Metal roofing is known for its strength against environmental damage. However, Colorbond roofing takes it one step further, using advanced building materials that have been tested for half a century in the harshest of Australia’s climatic conditions. It offers protection from strong winds, rainfall and extreme heat better than any other metal roofing material.
Ease of Installation at a Lower Cost
New home owners believe that metal roofs are too heavy by default, and may conclude that they are too difficult to install. However, Colorbond roofing is one of the lightest roofing options available, these are easy to carry, handle and install. In fact, a tiled roof is much heavier than this metal roof sheets, which means that Colorbond would not cause any structural stress or damage to a home, commercial building, or structure such as a car port.
Because it is easier to install metal roofing than any other type of roof material, it takes less time and labour, which equates to lower installation costs.
Impressive Thermal Efficiency
Metal is a good conductor of heat. So, does it mean that you will be paying more on energy bills? This roofing options has been designed to offer insulation features bundled in the Thermatech® technology. This technology ensures that your home of commercial building stays cooler in summer and warmer in winter. With better insulation, you will actually save money off your energy bill.
Colorbond metal roofing requires little or no maintenance, and when compared to their traditional counterparts, maintenance costs are much lower. Colorbond treated metal roofing is also resistant to corrosion, and will offer you many years’ service without chipping, tearing, and cracking. Also, the material does not break easily, and it is easy to discover any damaged sheets, as well as to replace them when needed. It is no wonder why Colorbond roofing is the practical choice of New Zealanders.
Without a doubt, the roof is the most important part of any home, building, or structure, which is why the choice of roofing material is paramount. In New Zealand, many residential and commercial property owners trust NZ steel roofing materials to protect their homes and buildings, for good reasons.
Steel roofs are energy-efficient, durable, long-lasting, cost-effective, and more versatile than other types roofing material, and, depending on the grade of steel used, the manufacturer’s warranty can be as long as 30 years or more, if certain requirements are met. One of the main requirements of a manufacturer’s warranty coverage is that the steel roof is professionally installed by a licensed roofing company.
Licensed roofers make sure that the manufacturer’s roofing material is installed correctly on your home or commercial building, and when done properly, a Lifetime Limited Warranty is activated. A manufacturer’s warranty typically covers the original owner against any defects, as well as specific damages such as flaking, chipping, splitting, cracking, and peeling of protective coating. Should failures occur, warranty coverage will provide replacement materials and the cost of labour for any replacement or repairs that are needed.
Property Owners Rely on Manufacturer’s Warranty of Steel Roofing
It is a wise decision when either buying a new home, or reroofing an existing building, to investigate the manufacturer’s warranty first, before agreeing on anything in writing. A licensed roofing company can help you go over what a steel roof warranty covers, and what it does not cover, and, how long the coverage will lasts.
Purchasing property is a big investment, and because it is the roof that protects everything under it, property owners rely not only on the professional steel roof installation, but on the quality of the roofing material and the manufacturer’s warranty to protect all that they own. This especially concerns residential property owners because everything of value they own is under the roof of their home.
This is exactly why it is highly recommended to hire a well-known and proven roofing company based on their passed work, rather than hire the lowest priced licensed roofing contractor or handyman to install your metal roof. While licensed roofers are all required to carry insurance in case of accidents such as workers damaging your property, not all licensed roofing companies deliver the same level of service and craftsmanship.
