Welcome to the Roofing Files

The roofing files blog has been established by group of dedicated individuals who want to help others with knowledge, advice & tips on everything to do with roofing. With over 25 years experience in the industry, we thought it was time to give a little back.

The Roofing Files blog is currently divided into 6 main sections. You can access each section from the main menu above. However, we thought we tell you a bit about each section below, to help decide where to look for certain items:


Australia’s most popular roofing brand

Evolving into one of the world’s most advanced building materials over the past 45 years, COLORBOND® steel has become Australia’s single most popular roofing brand. The reasons for its popularity are based in its sleek and elegant looks as well as its durability and thermal performance. COLORBOND® steel is available in a range of 22 contemporary colours, which celebrate the natural beauty of the Australian landscape.


Australia’s finest galvanised roofing product

Setting a new industry benchmark, next generation ZINCALUME® steel meets the growing demands of a changing built environment for durability, resilience and sustainability; giving you the confidence to create for years to come.

Next generation ZINCALUME® steel’s patented Activate™ technology introduces magnesium into the aluminium-zinc alloy coating, improving galvanic protection by activating the aluminium. The result is a tougher protective coating that’s more resistant to scratches and scuffs encountered during construction.
