50 Years of Colorbond Roofing Sheets: Helping Complete Australian Homes
It's no exaggeration to say that Colorbond Roofing Sheets have helped shaped family lives in Australia for many generations. 
Under BlueScope, the first coil of Colorbond steel was produced in 1966 at Port Kembla, Wollonggong. If a home was built for your family during the'60s, then it is highly probable that its roofs, walls, guttering, sheds and garage doors were built using Colorbond sheets — these products were much celebrated and utilised in many homes as well as commercial structures throughout Australia, and you may have grown up having these sturdy sheets over your head. 
Although homes may have made the switch from steel to tiled roofs as the '80s and '90s came to pass, millions of homeowners remain enamoured by Colorbond steel's versatility and vibrant colours, helping it remain one of the top building materials for customers today.
How has Colorbond evolved over 50 years?
Colorbond Roofing steel products come in 22 striking colour varieties, each one carefully designed and developed to fit the unique Australian landscape. Whether you want subtle shades or darker hues, Colorbond can present you with options that can meet your personal aesthetic sense when building or renovating your home.
Inspired by the look of stone? Basalt, Monument and Shale Grey may be perfect for your property. Aiming to reproduce the look of lush vegetation? Cottage Green or Pale Eucalypt could be exactly what you are looking for. Or maybe you prefer a bolder palette? In this case, Manor Red, Deep Ocean or Terrain would be a better fit. However, if all the earthy colours are too vivid for your space, then popular options like Classic Cream and Paperbark would be excellent colour choices.
That's not all; in 2013, the brand's impressive innovation, the ACTIVATE technology, made the product even more versatile than ever before. Aside from being used in the most charming suburban communities and even well-known large commercial buildings, Australians have also found creative ways to use the steel sheets to meet their design vision and needs. You'll easily find DIY creations like letter boxes, cubby houses and even Christmas trees constructed using Colorbond steel. 
Presently, 22 kangaroo-shaped sculptures — all made using the popular steel product — have even been constructed and displayed in Sydney's The Rocks as part of Colorbond's 50th anniversary celebrations.
If you want to display Colorbond colours — the colours of Australia since 1966 — throughout your property, you can find many reliable suppliers of Australian BlueScope Steel products which you can purchase at the lowest prices and can be delivered promptly to your home.


Ways to Reduce Noise Caused By Rain on Your Corrugated Iron Roof

many people, rain drumming on the roof can be one of the dreamiest, most romantic sounds on Earth. When you wake up to a grey sky and the soft pitter-patter of rain, all you want to do is bury yourself deeper under the covers and catch a few more winks. Perhaps you would be moved to get up, fix yourself some tea or hot cocoa, and snuggle into the couch with a good book and a warm blanket. You might also be inspired to write a poem or an entry in your journal--the sound of the rain on the roof and the sight of raindrops trickling down a windowpane can always be trusted to stimulate creativity or strong emotions that must be put down on paper.

As nice as this scenario may be, most people know that not all rains produce sounds on the roof that can lull you to sleep or trigger artistic tendencies. If the rainstorm is quite strong, and your home was built with a corrugated iron roof, then you'll soon discover that the rain can actually create quite a ruckus — and no one will expect to get some more sleep or to slip into a dreamy mood for long with all that noise.

What can you do?

Of course, there's no need to endure a noisy roof every time the rain clouds roll into town. Your Colorbond or Zincalume steel roof is the best provision you can select to protect your home and property, but it can function without creating excessive noise every time it rains — you just need to employ a few simple methods to reduce the sound.

Here are some ideas you can try:

Use a glass fibre or wool blanket

Glass fibre or wool blankets are made with reflective foil bonded to one side; typically, they can be bought in rolls. This material can be installed directly under the corrugated iron roof sheeting. It must be pulled tight so that it can be held hard against the sheeting's underside. Doing this can dampen the vibration caused by hard rain, and consequently, it cuts the noise created by raindrops. 

In addition, glass fibre or wool blankets have the effect of insulating against the transfer of heat that comes through the metal roof sheets and into the ceiling cavity. If your property is in a more temperate zone in Australia, these blankets are meant to be installed with its silver side facing downward; if you live in a more tropical location, however, roofing specialists recommend installing the blankets with the silver side facing the roofing sheets.

In order to get the most function out of these blankets, you need to make sure that they do not get wet from rain or any other source of water. Moisture in the blankets can lead to the deterioration of the metal roof sheets, which can translate to more costs and hassles for the homeowner.

Add insulation for your ceiling

Putting rigid foam or spray insulation in the space between your roof and the interior is another way to reduce the noise caused by rain on your metal roof. While insulation's primary purpose is to regulate heat, it can also significantly cut down noise levels.

Make sure your roof is well-fastened 

If the metal sheets of your roof are poorly installed, they could be making the noise created during rainstorms worse. Get an experienced professional to take a look at your roof to check if any sheets are coming loose or if any fasteners are incorrectly placed. 

It's also important to point out that metal roofing sheets can expand or contract when there are temperature changes, increasing the likelihood of loosened sheets.

Loud noises when it rains shouldn't discourage you from getting roofing sheets from a trusted BlueScope steel supplier — in fact, it's the best choice you can make since the sheets can be securely purchased online at the lowest prices, and they'll be delivered in no time at all, too. Keep in mind that the racket created by raindrops can be turned down with these helpful tips — so you can once again enjoy the sound of rain on your roof.
