How much does colorbond roofing cost?

We get a lot of Google searches about Colorbond roofing costs

In Sydney, there are mainly two types of roofs.

  1. Tiles (either terracotta, concrete or slate).
  2. Metal (usually referred to as colorbond)

The versatility of metal roofing over tiles is changing the roofscapes around Sydney.

You will see new houses with low pitched roofs or with extreme roof slopes. And they are all colorbond roofs. Old roofs get the new colorbond treatment and it is now the fashion statement.
This prompts the question “Does colorbond roofing cost more or less than tile roofs?”

Are Colorbond metal roofs more expensive than tile roofs?

If you are building a project home, the colorbond roof option will set you back a little over the traditional concrete tile roof (which is the cheapest roof material option). So, if you use this as a yardstick – then colorbond is a touch more expensive.

However, if the roof is complicated and has low pitched sections, then roof tiles will eventually cause you a lot more problems with maintenance and water leakage…. which makes the colorbond option cheaper in the long run…

So, what costs am I looking at?

If you are just looking for an approximate cost to replace a tile roof or an old metal roof with a colorbond roof in Sydney, then there is a “What is the replacement cost of a roof” page. Just go there.

If you are just shopping around and you are looking for colorbond roofing prices in Sydney’s inner and mid west, then the following  video is a good starting point to learn a bit more of the nitty gritty of colorbond roofs and colorbond roofing materials…

The video is a few years old and the costs are about 50% more than what is on the video – but you will get the general idea.
