Metal Roofing & Cladding FAQs

Metal Roofing

What are the benefits of Colorbond roofing and other metal roofing materials?

Metal roofing materials including Colorbond roofing have proven to be extremely durable in extreme weather conditions and even offer fire and wind resistance. They require little to no maintenance compared to a tile roof and come in a huge range of colours and profiles to suit. Metal roofing doesn’t suffer oxidation or colour fading like tiled roofing does, with colours remaining true and vibrant for many years. You can find out more in our blog What are the benefits of a metal roof!

Is Colorbond roofing and other metal roofing energy efficient?

Thermally efficient roofing materials like Colorbond steel can help you reduce your cooling costs, saving you anywhere up to 40% on total energy expenditure. In summer, a lightweight insulated metal roof cools down fast once the sun sets, causing less heat to be radiated into the property at night. In winter, the same steel roof helps keep the heat inside when properly insulated. The colour you opt for can also affect thermal efficiency, with lighter colours radiating less heat during summer.

Is Colorbond roofing and other metal roofing noisy?

The most popular misconception of metal roofing is that it can be noisy when it rains. When installed and insulated correctly, a metal roof is just as quiet – if not more quiet – than a tiled roof.

How long will Colorbond roofing and other metal roofing last?

Depending on the material used, metal roofing is proven to last 40 to 70 years – that’s at least double the life expectancy of a tiled roof! Metal roofing including Colorbond roofing does not rot and can withstand mildew and insects.

Metal Wall Cladding

What are the benefits of Colorbond and other metal wall cladding?

Metal wall cladding adds an extra protective layer to your property. It shields the internal building materials from the elements and is fire resistant. Not only is metal wall cladding aesthetically pleasing and change the overall look of a property, it also requires little maintenance or repair work.

Is Colorbond and other metal wall cladding energy efficient?

Metal wall cladding made from Colorbond steel can reduce your energy costs. Similar to that of a metal roof, when out of direct sunlight the wall cladding cools down very fast, causing less heat to be radiated into the property. With properly insulated walls, metal wall cladding can also aid in keeping the heat inside during winter.

How long does Colorbond and other metal wall cladding last?

Just like metal roofing material, metal wall cladding materials are long lasting. The material is extremely durable, resisting chipping, flaking and blistering. It doesn’t rot and withstands mildew and insects.

Buckland Roofing recently completed a successful replacement of an asbestos roof on our commercial building. It was great to have them take control, and work with our tenant and associated trades to get the project done under time and to a great standard. It was nice to have a group of tradies willing to offer up-front advice, and get a job done with minimal fuss.

On a rainy night, our rusty old roof eventually gave in to the elements, and torrents of water were running down our walls. In these situations you feel you could be held to ransom by dishonest tradesmen. I rang Clint and he turned up when he said he would, gave me a solution to the problem and quoted accordingly - no surprises. I knew I was in good hands. All the team members I met understood the job and cleaned up after, all-round good operators.

Clint and the Buckland Roofing team were a pleasure work with on our recent project, "Your Coffee" in Brunswick. Their consistent "can-do" attitude and ability to problem solve through some difficult tasks was exceptional. I will be calling on these guys for all future projects.
