Colorbond has been one of the leading sources of steel to outfit homes in Australia in terms of: roofing, guttering and fascia, garage doors, walling, fencing, sheds, patios and pergolas, and water tanks since 1966. What makes these steel colours so special is that they are inspired from the natural colours in Australia’s landscape. If you are interested in adding steel enhancements to your home that are tasteful, efficient, and elegant, review Colorbond’s steel colour offerings below.
The colour groups to look for:
Contemporary: For the modern group, there are wide ranges of colours to include greys, light colds, ivories, light browns, dark greys, light greens, blacks, and dark browns. These colours are the ideal fit to compliment many of the exterior colours on homes. For example, homeowners may want to design a steel shed that does not contrast greatly to the existing colour of their home’s paint colour. With the contemporary category, there are many colours to choose from that directly correspond to both Australia’s landscape and existing home colouring.
Classic: For this category, Colorbond offers many strong colours that are designed to make a statement to accent traditional home paint colours. For example, there is a range available from dark greens, to deep blood reds, dark navy blues, light greens, dark greys, and classic off-whites. For those that have older homes in Australia, the classic category is a good place to start when you’re looking to match with desired steel upgrades.
Matt: The Matt colour scheme was brought to life by a Matt paint technology, crafting a more delicate look. This category offers traditional basic colours that is a perfect choice for - roofs, walls, gutters, fascia and downpipes. The same colours as in the contemporary/classic range, but it’s a Matt sheen instead of a low sheen/gloss level.
Fencing: This group is designed to blend well with garden and landscape plans, bearing the Australian consumer in mind. Some of the colours that can be selected are: dark greys, light greys, yellow ivories, light greens, light browns, beiges, off-whites, and dark greens. These colours are ideal to pair with stone walls and walkways in both the front and backyard of a home.
Ultra: This Ultra collection was inspired by the Australian bushland, white sandy beaches, misty seas, and the green forest. Ultra colours are identical to some of the others you will find in the contemporary/classic range. However, these have a different base coat (underneath the paint) to help with corrosion in coastal areas.
