Colorbond is exclusively produced by Bluescope and they provide the warranty for the material.
There are other coloured metal roofing and fencing products in Sydney that are not produced by Bluescope. These alternatives do not carry the Bluescope warranty – but they look and feel very similar to Colorbond.
So, how do you tell them apart?
You will not find any reference on the Colorbond website to how you can spot their genuine Colorbond material. So, if a client asks me how they can tell if I am using genuine Colorbond on their roof, I have to be able to show them some evidence… And this is a colorbond imprint on the UNDERSIDE of the Colorbond material.
…If you turn the Colorbond roof sheet upside down and take a close look at the light grey surface, you will see faint imprint lines. This is the evidence that the Colorbond material is genuine.
If you can’t find this imprint, then the coloured roofing material is not genuine Colorbond – and you are not covered by the Bluescope warranty.
What about Bluescope Zincalume?
You will find a similar imprint on genuine Zincalume products also. Even though both sides are the same colour, the “underside” will carry the Bluescope Steel Zincalume imprint.
