Is Your Roof Environmentally Friendly?

Sustainable, energy efficient homes are the new gold standard when it comes to building works. But this doesn’t mean your existing home can’t also be brought up to scratch. Whether you’re working on a new dream home or updating the one you have, Colorbond roofing is an environmentally friendly choice. Read on for more on what makes Colorbond so eco-friendly.

Excellent Thermal Efficiency

It’s long been known that light coloured roofing is excellent at reflecting sunlight and therefore it keeps your house cooler, even under the harsh Aussie sun. The Colorbond steel range have 5 light, attractive colours which qualify as solar reflective. Invest in a new roof and save money on your energy bills instead.

Sustainable Materials

Colorbond roofing is made from long-lasting steel which contains a large percentage of recycle materials. It’s fully recyclable down the track and can easily be reused without repurposing saving on valuable energy and resources. With 5 layers of protection – steel, metallic coating, pre-treatment, primer and topcoat – it’s stronger than regular steel and twice as eco-friendly.

Fire Protection

One of the sad realities of climate change is the increase in extreme weather events. Australia has always had bushfires, but we’re increasingly at risk with the dryer weather and hotter days. Colorbond roofs have superior fire protection for homes in bushfire prone areas. This can help protect your property in the event of a fire and minimise the rebuilding efforts in the aftermath. Hooky’s Roofing are highly experienced in bushfire prone metal installations in all four bushfire codes; FZ (Flame Zone), Bal-40, Bal-29 an Bal-19.

Make Sure It’s Genuine

All of these sustainable benefits are only relevant for genuine Colorbond roofing. You can be sure your Colorbond roofing is genuine by asking to see the steel branding on the product or its packaging. Hooky’s Roofing have been supplying Sydney homes with Colorbond roofs for 20 years and are recognised by the Metal Roofing & Cladding Association or Australia. We also have a 10 year workmanship warranty. With over 2,400 happy customers and counting; you can rely on Hooky’s to get the job done.
