How long does a COLORBOND roof last?

Find out how long COLORBOND roofing lasts and how you can maintain it to prolong its lifetime.

Ever-reliable COLORBOND roofing

Ever-reliable COLORBOND roofing

COLORBOND steel roofing is one of the most popular roofing options in Australia. Known for its durability and weather resistance, COLORBOND steel roofing is an ideal choice for homes and offices in areas where bad weather is prevalent and bushfires are common.

One important question that many homeowners and business owners alike ask is “How long does a COLORBOND roof last?” Typically, a COLORBOND roof can last for up to 70 years!

While COLORBOND roofing can last a very long time, factors like bad weather can reduce the lifespan of a COLORBOND roof.

How to maintain your COLORBOND steel roof

A simple and easy way to maintain your COLORBOND roof is to clean it regularly. Here are a few tips for keeping your COLORBOND roof clean.

Wash off mould

Mould growth can potentially damage your COLORBOND roof. To clean off mould, use a high-pressure hose to loosen it and use a still-bristle brush to take off any stubborn pieces of mould.

Remove rust

Older COLORBOND roofs may show signs of rusting. To remove rust, scrub the area carefully with a cloth and mild detergent. For severe rusting, clean the affected area with water and vinegar.

Clean every few years

COLORBOND roofs don’t need cleaning very often. Set a roof cleaning schedule for every 2-3 years to keep your roof in good condition. Also, consider hiring a professional to do the cleaning.


What factors affect the lifespan of a COLORBOND roof?

Sun exposure

Long-term exposure to the sun can cause wear and tear on your COLORBOND roof, especially if you have chosen a dark colour. They tend to absorb more heat, causing your roof to heat up significantly.

Roof pitch

The slope of your roof determines how easily it can shed water. If the pitch isn’t steep enough, water may start to collect on your COLORBOND roof. Over time, this can cause damage to your roof.

Extreme weather

While COLORBOND roofs are very durable, extreme weather conditions can still cause considerable damage. Violent weather events like hailstones and high-speed winds may reduce your roof’s longevity.
