In the pipeline - DIY Plumbing Tip #38 -Best Metal Roof Restoration Material

September 07 2015

​webbplumbing services provides the following simple steps in choosing the correct metal type for your roof restoration project.

COLORBOND: *1st Choice Material

With a durable, baked-on paint finish, COLORBOND® steel resists chipping, peeling and cracking to deliver long life performance with low maintenance. With outstanding anti-corrosion performance, COLORBOND® steel is one of the toughest, most advanced building materials.

ZINCALUME:  *2nd Choice Material.

Setting a new industry benchmark, next generation ZINCALUME® steel meets the growing demands of a changing built environment for durability, resilience and sustainability; giving you the confidence to create for years to come. Next generation ZINCALUME® steel’s patented Activate™ technology introduces magnesium into the aluminium-zinc alloy coating, improving galvanic protection byactivating the aluminium. The result is a tougher protective coating that’s more resistant to scratches and scuffs encountered during construction.

GALVANIZED IRON:  *Last Choice Material.

 Galvanised sheeting is still available today but is a rather different product from the hot dipped sheet produced up to the 1960’s. The product that is available now should only be used as a last resort.
