McHugh Steel Choosing the right material for your roof can be time-consuming. Whether building a new home or renovating, you will want to consider all your options. Tiles are becoming a less popular roofing choice. They are less durable than metal roofing and they are prone to cracking and difficult to maintain. ZINCALUME® is a metal roofing material that is becoming more fashionable. It is versatile and can be used on its own or paired up with COLORBOND® panels. When choosing steel, you can no longer go past Zincalume. Its quality and durability trumps many other types of steel on the market. Here’s everything you need to know about Zincalume before you make your choice.

What is Zincalume?

Zincalume is a steel that is coated in zinc and aluminium alloy. This coating allows it to be up to four times more resistant to corrosion than galvanised steel.

Why is Zincalume the best?

• Zincalume is incredibly thermally efficient. Built to keep the heat out in summer and the warmth in during wintertime, it’s a great choice when considering building or renovating in the Bundaberg climate (and its surrounds). • Zincalume is recyclable. Unlike other roof materials, Zincalume is completely recyclable making it environmentally friendly and easy to replace. • It is tried and tested. Zincalume has been tested over a 17-year period in real-world and laboratory conditions. The results showed that Zincalume is one of the most durable steel items on the market. • It is flexible. Zincalume can be curved to shape even the most modern architectural designs. • It is easy to maintain. Unlike tiling, Zincalume is easy to maintain and is built to last.

What you need to consider

Zincalume has been deemed by the Australian Water Quality Centre as completely safe to use in the collection (not storage) of drinking water. Zincalume is incompatible with copper piping and lead flashing.
