Metal roofing can come in many different designs and aesthetics. Creating a unique and distinguished look can be achieved by using copper, zinc or colorbond roofing and accents. Copper, zinc and colorbond roofing can completely change the look of your property and increase its value.

Copper Roofing


One of the best materials to use in roofing when it comes to aesthetic design is copper. Having a copper roof installed completely changes the appearance of your residential or commercial property.  Copper standing seam roofing is incredibly sturdy even in the face of strong winds and are very fire resistant.


If you don’t want to install an entire copper metal roofing system, you could have copper standing seam accents installed. Copper accents provide a beautiful frame for you house or business that really stands out. These accents can be installed on pretty much any surface.

Zinc Roofing


Zinc roofing, similar to copper roofing; possess a unique quality that cannot be accurately replicated. Zinc roofing can also come in tiles, adding to the extensive list of possible configurations. Incredibly easy to install and maintain, a zinc roof can hold its aesthetic qualities reliably for many years.


Zinc roofing accents can be an excellent addition to almost any property. Providing the ability to contrast the rest of the roofing, zinc accents create a border for your house. If you are looking to add a classy edge to your property that will last the duration of your home, look no further than zinc accents.

Colorbond Roofing

Colorbond roofing has become an extremely popular choice for roofing in Sydney. The structural security it provides coupled with the textural quality of the metal, it is easy to see why it has become so popular. Like many other metal roofs, Colorbond has a decent life expectancy when properly taken care of. 

The summers in Sydney can be quite hot, and saving money on air conditioning has become a strong desire of many residents. Colorbond roofing can actually reduce the financial expenditure by reflecting the sun’s rays and keeping the residency cool.   Colorbond roofing also comes in many different colours, meaning you can accurately match a colour template to the rest of your house.

Benefits of Metal Roofing

Aesthetics aside, metal roofing also comes with a host of benefits. When properly maintained, zinc and copper roofing can last for over 100 years. Colorbond roofing typically has a life of approximately 60 years or so.

  • Another added benefit to having a metal roof is that they can save you money on heating and cooling costs. It does this by reflecting the sun’s rays back into the sun whilst also retaining insulation.
  • Metal roofing materials are incredibly environmentally friendly. Most metal roofs are composed of recyclable materials and as such can be reused in other projects.
  • Many people wrongly assume that because metal is a conduit for electricity, it is an unsafe roofing material. While it’s true that metal conducts electricity, they do not increase the chance of your house being struck by lightning. Furthermore, if the metal sheets on your roof are struck by lightning, it will not ignite into flames.
  • Roofing metal is very lightweight, especially when compared to other roofing materials. This makes it easier for contractors to install. While metal roofing is lightweight, it is still quite resistant to high wind and most weather conditions.
