Colorbond® Roofing Costs

Colorbond roofing is a high quality and affordable roofing solution. It does cost a bit more than a typical metal roofing system but for such a high-quality, durable product it represents fantastic value for money.

It is important to remember that your roof will keep you safe and secure from the outdoor environment for many years. We don’t recommend cutting corners when it comes to your roof as a good quality roof will last you for many, many years and add to the value of your home as well as how appealing it looks.

Gutters, Fascia and Downpipes

Alongside your new Colorbond roof, you may also need to consider gutters, fascia and downpipes. This is all part of the roofing system because runoff water will need to pass through gutters and downpipes and flow into underground drains.

Your plumber will help you design the entire roofing system. Make sure you also consider the design and colour of your gutters, fascia and downpipes so that it suits your property’s exterior and new roof.


At Top Glaze we provide a 10-year warranty on all products and workmanship. In addition BlueScope, the manufcaturer of Colorbond also provide warranties for its steel roofing system. You can discuss suitable warranty options with the roofing company that installs your new roof.

Professionally Installed

Your Colorbond roof must be installed by a licenced and professional roofer. In addition to the roofing, the associated parts such as the gutter, fascia and downpipes must also be installed by a qualified roof plumber.
