Choosing Colorbond Roof Colours for Your New Roof

 Colorbond roofing is famous for its incredible range of colour choices. There are plenty of options, but how do you decide from so many? If you’re looking at a new roof, roofing for extensions, or major home improvements, it’s worth taking the time to see all the possibilities.

The Colorbond range is a mix of good taste and very practical colour choices for modern homes. If you’re looking at choices for quality exterior presentation, Colorbond’s range is a great place to start. You can see a whole spectrum of colour choices, combinations, and mixes for your exterior look.

Choosing Colorbond Colours

The Colorbond colour chart is a great place to start when it comes to your range of options. The question is – how will each colour look on your home? Do you want mixed colours, different coloured guttering, a fabulous green, or a beautiful blue? How about a dark but elegant red?

The Colorbond Visualiser

The Colorbond visualiser allows you to mix and match colours on a palette of common home designs. Take the time to experiment with colours, tones, and combinations.

Choose between housing styles, and even match your roofing with your fencing, using this very handy and very helpful software.

This is how it works:

  • Click on the Colorbond visualiser link above
  • Choose a type of house, from traditional, coastal, country and contemporary
  • You’ll get a screen of your choice and the Colorbond colours
  • The basic entry screen defines which parts of the house you select, like roofing, walls, and guttering
  • Click on a part of the house you’ve selected
  • A colour chart will appear
  • Click on the colours to see how each will look
  • Click ‘Done’ to save your selection

As you can see, you’ll get an instant mix and match selection for each part of the home. Click on other parts of the house and add colour choices. It’s a good idea to try variations on colours, too. Which blue, for example, looks better? Do you want to try different colours on different parts of the house?

This is the quick way to get an accurate picture of the colour and how it will look on your home. Experiment with a few colour choices to make effective comparisons and narrow down your selection with each choice.

You may also want to try colour combinations in a range of houses. This comparison option is helpful if your home has a particular type of roof, but another type of main house configuration.
