An Enso Home with COLORBOND steel roofing and shower walling.


Don’t you just love the echoing metallic sound of rain falling? Yes, we’re talking about the COLORBOND steel roofs that have gained immense popularity in recent years.

The iconic material is known for its durability, sustainable properties, high-wind resistance, and pattering sound when it rains. COLORBOND steel is great for Victorian weather. Let’s explore the benefits of COLORBOND steel and why Enso Homes are offering it as part of our standard inclusions.


What are the Benefits of having a COLORBOND Steel Roof?

1.     It’s Durable and Long-lasting

We all know that buildings in Victoria face challenging weather conditions, as the old saying goes – four seasons in one day. COLORBOND steel is designed with resilient elements and has been tested for over fifty years in challenging environments. The steel is made from a combination of zinc, aluminium, and steel, making it strong and resilient. The pre-painted colour coating is specially formulated to resist fading, chipping, and peeling, ensuring that your roof remains vibrant and attractive for many years.

2.     It’s Energy Efficient

COLORBOND steel roofs are highly energy efficient, helping you save on energy bills. The material reflects heat from the sun, reducing the amount of heat that’s absorbed by your home. This helps to keep your home cooler in summer, minimising the need for air conditioning. The insulation under the roof helps to retain heat in winter, minimising the need for heating. There’s increased demand for greener living and limiting the use of artificial heating and cooling. By having COLORBOND steel as a standard inclusion in your home we help you save money on your energy bills year-round and meet Victorian energy rating requirements.

3.     It’s Easy to Maintain

COLORBOND steel roofs are low maintenance with nearly no maintenance required. COLORBOND steel boasts a lengthy lifespan and an enhanced visual appeal. The pre-painted colour coating is designed to be long-lasting so there’s no need to repaint your roof every few years. The material is also resistant to rust, pests and corrosion which means you won’t have to worry about replacing damaged tiles or shingles. We believe homes should be long-lasting and enjoyed without the stress of maintenance.

4.     It’s Fire Resistant

COLORBOND steel is a fire-resistant material and has a high fire rating to meet the Australian Building Code for use in bushfire-prone areas. The steel is non-combustible and will help protect your home in the event of a bushfire.
