Attached is one of McHugh steels Colourbond’s roofs in basalt.

Since your roof is a long-term investment, be it a small garden shed or an industrial shed to your home. It’s important to choose the best option for you. Colorbond and Zincalume are both sturdy and durable, there is a key difference that you should consider.

The key difference between Colorbond and Zincalume is colour. Colorbond is available in 22 colours, while Zincalume comes in a standard aluminium colour.

Colourbond’s wide range of colours is designed to suit any style. Whether you prefer cool, warm, light, dark, subtle or bold shades, whatever your theme is Colourbond has the range to match it.

On the other hand, Zincalume comes in one standard aluminium colour. Since it does not have a layer of custom paint, its colour cannot be customized to your home’s theme. Its shiny metal look can get dulls over time, which may detract from your home’s appeal.

When it comes to choosing the best roofing option for your home, you need to decide whether colour is important to you.
