Discover the diverse range of COLOBROND roof sheeting options, ideal for traditional homes.

Add some colour to your roof

Traditional homes aren’t as common as they once were in many parts of Australia. With a significant number of homeowners transitioning to modern and contemporary homes, traditional homes have become somewhat rare, increasing their value.

If you’re the owner of a traditional home and are looking to further increase its value, one of the best ways to do so is by upgrading your home’s roof. However, don’t just settle for any ordinary roof sheeting—choose COLORBOND roofing sheets.

These roofing sheets are not only stronger but also considerably more durable than average roof sheeting. That’s not all—you can also choose from a range of roofing sheet types based on your preferences and needs.

The different COLORBOND roofing sheet types

Here’s a look at COLORBOND’s range of roofing sheet types available for traditional-style homes.


Corrugated roofing sheets are a type of roofing material that features a wavy or corrugated pattern. Thanks to this design, these roofing sheets can prevent water from pooling on your roof. Also, functionality aside, corrugated roofing sheets can add a distinctive and classic look to your home.


Metroclad roofing sheets feature clean lines with a smooth finish, giving them a very modern and unique look. These roofing sheets are very durable, thanks to the COLORBOND steel they’re made of. Plus, their sleek appearance can give your traditional home a more upmarket and stylish look.


Trimdek roofing sheets, somewhat similar to corrugated roofing sheets, feature ribs with a unique trapezoidal pattern. This textured design prevents water from pooling up on your roof. Also, this type of roofing sheet provides exceptional structural durability to traditional-style homes.

How to choose the right roofing sheet for your home

Here are a few tips to help you choose the perfect roofing sheets for your home;

Think about your architectural style

Traditional Australian homes feature all kinds of styles, such as Federation, Queenslander and Colonial. When choosing a COLORBOND roofing sheet type for your home, look for one that matches your home’s architectural style.

Consider climate conditions

Consider the climate in your specific location when choosing COLORBOND roofing. Different roofing types offer different benefits depending on the climate. For example, corrugated roofs are better for homes in rainy climates.

Check the building codes

Sometimes, the building codes in your area may dictate which types of roofing you’re allowed to use. Check with the relevant authorities in your area and check which roofing types and styles you’re permitted to use for your home.
