Bluescope changes the range of colorbond colours every now and then – and when they do so, these colours are available to all the roofing and guttering ‘rollformers’ (roofing manufacturing companies who use the Bluescope colorbond coil to produce roofing sheets , flashings and guttering.
It is best to go to the Colorbond website for the current colours and use their appearance application….
Recently, Bluescope announced 6 new colours (and withdrawing 5 colours in the ‘old’ range) that will be available early 2014 from most roll formers.
The new colour chart is below:
To check out the new colorbond range, click on the image below and you will be taken to the Colorbond website. There is also a neat “Visualiser” app on the site that you can use to see what the different colours look like on a typical roof…
On the Bluescope colorbond site, you will find your choice of colours in the standard range. If you are using the ‘ultra’ colorbond roofing material, then there is also another page where a smaller range is found. Even stainless steel can come in colorbond colours. And fences get their own colour range. Some other manufacturers have their own range of colours – but they cannot call theirs ‘colorbond’ because this branding is owned by Bluescope.
Ace Gutters produce their guttering in the standard colorbond range and also in a range of their own colours. For all the convenience of websites, the screen resolution on your computer will not show the exact colours effectively.
You will need to look at an actual colour sample and most roofers will carry samples with them that they can show you.
Check out the picture gallery above. I have to really try to remember what colours were chosen for the roofs we have done because the pictures do not show the true colours that well. Remember that within a range, there is no difference in pricing for the different colours.
*UPDATE October 2013.*
