Colorbond Roofing – Best Practices for Storage

Colorbond roofing prides itself in using the best materials and harnessing new technologies to deliver superior products.

However, between transportation, storage and actual installation, a lot of things can happen. These things can undermine the look and performance of your new metal roof even before it is installed.

As such, you and your roofing contractor should pay good attention to how the roofing sheets are stored prior to installation. Here are some important tips you should closely follow.

Keep the roofing sheets dry

Prior to installation, moisture is the biggest enemy of metal roofing. Ideally, the roofing sheets should be stored off the ground and should be stacked or bundled neatly. If necessary, provide a covering to reinforce the protection against moisture. 

When roofing sheets are stored closely together, an action called capillary action can draw water between the sheets. In turn, capillary action can lead to stains and the shortened life expectancy of your new roof.

Dry wet metal sheets immediately

If the roofing sheets should get wet during storage, it is crucial that these are dried as soon as possible. If the roofing sheets are stacked, separate these and immediately wipe those that have gotten wet using a clean piece of cloth.

You might notice that the roofing sheets' paint film may have softened and that the colour may have changed. After you have dried the roofing sheets, these will revert back to their natural state.

The roofing sheets should be handled with great care until fully dry. Otherwise, corrosion and stains can set in.

Your home is likely to be your biggest financial investment and your largest asset. Having a BlueScope warranty covering the important steel building products in and around your home is an investment in peace of mind.

COLORBOND® steel is developed for, and therefore more resilient to, the severe sunlight and temperatures typical of Australian environments. BlueScope scientists have tested COLORBOND® steel in some of Australia’s harshest climates. 

Rest assured that COLORBOND® steel is guaranteed to meet relevant Australian standards. Make sure you look for the brand as not all painted steel is genuine COLORBOND® steel.

How to Integrate Colorbond Roofing Into Green Rooftops

Rooftops are changing cities’ landscapes; they are beloved by many people because they help make the tops of buildings not only more pleasing in terms of its appearance, but also more functional. You will find, however, that the most impressive rooftops have effectively combined concrete, turf and high quality roofing sheets such as Colorbond roofing into their design. It’s a balanced mix of modern and traditional approaches designed to achieve the best aesthetics and usefulness.

If you’re considering creating a green rooftop and you want to incorporate traditional roofing sheets or panels into the design, here are some ideas definitely worth trying.

  1. Create a covered walkway using the roofing sheets. Bend the sheet to form a curved canopy and anchor the two edges of the sheets into plant boxes. The advantage with Colorbond roofing sheets for this idea is they can provide a pop of colour and, at the same time, provide protection from UV rays and heat from the sun.
  2. Use roofing sheets strips (you can purchase sheets already sized to your needs through online vendors who offer roofing products at more attractive prices) to create raised planter boxes. These planter boxes can be used to grow everything from flowers to different kinds of vegetables. If these roofing sheets match those used for the canopies along walkways, you’ll be able to achieve a completely cohesive look for your rooftop garden.
  3. Create a pergola. If you can cover walkways, why not create a shelter from the sun and other elements where people can sit, relax, and connect with each other? A pergola on a rooftop garden will increase the functionality of the space and also boost its charming appearance.
  4. Roofing panels can be used to conceal the unsightly features of rooftops such as ugly walls and water tanks. All you really have to do is to attach the panels on the wall to cover cracks, holes or a bad paint job of the wall, and create a boxy structure to conceal the water tank effectively. The advantage of this strategy is that you can make the space much safer because the panels can add height to parapets.

High quality roofing sheets are versatile products so there are still so many other ways that you can incorporate Colorbond roofing to the rooftop garden you want to build. Check out Pinterest and Instagram and learn how people around the world are using the product to enhance the “beautility” of their rooftops.
