Supplier Feature – COLORBOND® Steel


Arden’s commitment to quality and sustainability in our home designs means it’s important for us to partner with suppliers who share these same values.

COLORBOND® steel has been a mainstay of the Australian building industry for over fifty years, and the steel in COLORBOND® steel is 100% recyclable. We’re proud to offer as standard roofs, gutters, fascias and downpipes made from COLORBOND® steel for all Arden homes, with a range of 22 colours to choose from.

But COLORBOND® steel is more than just paint on steel – its steel base is coated in BlueScope’s industry leading metallic coating technology, then coated with a pretreatment layer, a primer and finished with a specially developed durable topcoat that’s designed to resist chipping, blistering and flaking. Here’s why we think you’ll love a roof made from COLORBOND® steel as a feature of your Arden home.

Energy-efficient design 

All but one of the colours in COLORBOND® steel’s standard colour range features Thermatech® solar reflectance technology. Designed to reflect more of the sun’s heat on hot, sunny days, Thermatech® can mean less dependence on air-conditioning, plus reduced heat stress for your roof..

Made for the Australian climate

It’s no secret that the Australian weather can challenge the exterior of your home – between extreme temperatures, hail, dust, wind and rain, it’s important that your home is built to withstand these conditions.

COLORBOND® steel undergoes extensive testing across 12,000 panels located throughout Australia. From marine environments and tropical conditions to industrial applications, COLORBOND® steel is pushed to its limits to ensure it’s up to the task of protecting your home from the Australian elements.

Easy to maintain

COLORBOND® steel has been designed so that you can spend more time under your roof, and less time cleaning it. In fact, the seasonal rainfall we receive in Melbourne throughout the year is generally enough to keep the COLORBOND® steel roof of your Arden home in great condition.

For areas that the rain doesn’t reach, a simple hose down twice a year will help to prolong the life of your COLORBOND® steel for years to come.

Plus, COLORBOND® steel is backed by a fifty-year history of providing quality products to Australian homes, with a for that extra peace of mind.
