Colorbond or Zincalume? What are the prices? Which should I choose?

When deciding on the metal roofing sheets for your next roofing or walling project – the big question is – do I use Colorbond or Zincalume sheets? Why the difference in price between the two? 


There are many differences!

Colorbond – comes in a selection of 22 colours – with new additions just released!

Zincalume is plan “silver” colour, which sometimes gets mixed up with “gal”.  Galvanised steel sheets are very rarely used these days!

What is the warranty?

Colorbond and Zincalume can both be up to 30 years!

What is the difference in prices?

Between the two – Colorbond can be around $3.00 more per lineal metre than Zincalume. 

Colorbond, with the most popular roofing profile “custom orb” is also generally the more popular out of the two – the colour selections are too vast to pass up on!

Trimdek is also another popular choice – the prices are very similar to corrugated.
