Keep a cool roof with Colorbond Thermatech

Mark Bryson - Wednesday, March 01, 2017

It’s well known that dark colours absorb heat and light colours reflect it. Colorbond Thermatech steel roofing goes a step further and actively repels the sun’s rays with highly reflective paint.

There are now 21 colours in Colorbond’s standard steel range which optimises its solar reflectance properties. So you can choose from a wider range of colours and still enjoy a thermally efficient roof.

Not only does the roof and its supportive structure last longer but it can be an effective way to reduce the energy load of your home in summer. When heat is reflected away from your home, air-conditioning has an easier job keeping your building cool. Thermatech technology can reduce annual cooling energy consumption by up to 20%, compared to roofing materials of similar colour with low solar reflectance.

Berstan Homes can build your new home with a Colorbond Thermatech roof in any Northern, Eastern or South-Eastern Melbourne suburb from Ashburton to Vermont.
