The West Australian Building Industry has long been considered a leader in residential home design. West Australian Builders have consistantly out classed their interstate piers by winning a number national building and design awards.

One of  the growing trends we've seen here in recent times is the dominance of roofing made from COLORBOND® steel.  All you have to do is go to a new housing estate and take a look around. It's everywhere.

So why are more people choosing COLORBOND® steel  over more traditional products?
Stramit Building Products is a leading Australian manufacturer of steel. They're also one of the major suppliers of COLORBOND® steel  in WA. The pre painted COLORBOND® steel arrive here in coils and is then fed through a series a rollers, which forms it into a corrugated sheet a gutter, a downpipe or one of the endless number of products made from COLORBOND® steel.

COLORBOND® steel looks great is lightweight, strong, offers consumers security, and has fantastic colour range which allows you to design your home the way you want.

While roofing made from COLORBOND® steel has really taken off, the common practice today for gutters and downpipes is to post paint Zincalume® steel.

COLORBOND® steel is a product that has proven itself over forty years now, its an oven baked finish that meets the highest quality standards so what you get is a consistant  longer lasting finish that can be perfectly matched to your roof made COLORBOND® steel 

With 20 colours to choose from, 9 out of 10 new homes built in Australia feature products made from COLORBOND® steel . One builder that uses products made from COLORBOND® steel is Summit Homes

So once the products are manufactured with that oven-baked paint finish, they end up on a beautiful homeThe Xavier in Boardwalk Estate, Southern River. And between now and August Summit Homes are offering a free upgrade to COLORBOND® steel gutters and downpipes to their clients that select a roof made from COLORBOND® steel.

Well it seems pretty obvious why people are using products made from COLORBOND® steel  to build their new home. It's not just because it looks good, but because it will look newer for longer. So there's no need to spend time and money painting and re-painting your gutters and facias. And it's the only way to ensure a perfect colour match to your roof. so remember to ask your builder for COLORBOND® steel.
