When thinking of colours for your Home In WA, it’s best to start from the top - with your roof.  And gone are the days of limited colour options because with COLORBOND® steel’s 20 colours there’s plenty of choice and you can even mix and match. With over a century’s experience behind them, BlueScope Steel is a name you can trust. BlueScope Steel introduced COLORBOND® steel in 1966 and in over 40 years has made COLORBOND® steel a household name, through its choice of colours and design flexibility. Earlier this year COLORBOND® steel was relaunched with some new and exciting colours, new market leading technology, along with a new interactive online colour centre.

With climate change and other environmental issues in mind, the impact buildings have on the environment is becoming more important, and Thermatech technology has been introduced in response to this. Thermatech is a patented technology that improves the thermal performance of COLORBOND® steel by absorbing less of the sun’s heat, providing greater thermal comfort in buildings that feature a roof made from COLORBOND® steel. Thermatech technology has been incorporated into the new standard palette for COLORBOND® steel, which includes 3 new colours – Loft, Monument and Evening Haze. All 20 colours in COLORBOND® steel’s new and improved palette have been formulated to suit every house style, geography and environment. So whether you live by the beach, in the city or in the bush, COLORBOND® steel gives homeowners a wider range of choice for their homes. And under the Basix colour classification, 7 of the COLORBOND® steel colours are now classified as light or very light, with some of the darker colours almost doubling their thermal performance.

In fact, BlueScope Steel is so confident about its next generation of COLORBOND® steel that it’s even added improved warranties on roofing products such as gutters and downpipes. Then there’s COLORBOND® steel’s new online colour centre. This unique website enables consumers to truly visualise their building dreams with interactive tools to help mix and match different colours to suit them. This also gives consumers the advantage of easily sharing their ideas to builders and architects as they build or renovate. To check out their online colour centre for yourself visit
