Running a construction business can be tough. In addition to overcoming competition, whether for residential or commercial projects, you will have to deal with a volatile economy. An economy that isn’t looking too good will mean fewer business and/or more expensive building materials. So how will you help your business cope with such challenging situations?
You ensure your construction business’s reputation for delivering high quality projects. For the most part, this will mean choosing the right materials to build with, like using COLORBOND roofing for every project. Why COLORBOND, you ask?
First, COLORBOND steel is delivered pre-cut to construction sites, which means you avoid wastage on-site as well as lessen your impact to the surrounding area. With an increasing demand for sustainable home design and eco-friendly approaches to construction, COLORBOND makes for an ideal choice.
Second, COLORBOND roofs are low maintenance. Although, like most well-made features of any home, a high quality steel roof will need to be washed and inspected, but that’s about it. These simple maintenance procedures that ensure the service life of the COLORBOND roof will be a selling point for many property buyers, which then encourages many property investors to choose homes and buildings installed with COLORBOND steel roof.
Third, the corrugated roofing from COLORBOND is built with technology that promotes energy efficiency. Almost all of COLORBOND’s roofing, except for the stainless steel sheet and roofing that comes in Night Sky®, is made with Thermatech® technology. Thermatech® technology reduces the energy load of buildings and homes, which means homeowners and occupants use less air conditioning, without sacrificing comfort. And less reliance on air conditioning will lead to energy savings. By installing your building projects with COLORBOND steel, you help clients save money where it counts.
Fourth, this roofing brand comes in a rich array of colours — all inspired by Australia’s awesome landscapes. If you have always thought roofing jobs were purely for utility, think again. With COLORBOND’s 22 palettes, you will have a lot to offer your clients.
Fifth, COLORBOND has been tried and tested for 45 years. This means that its durability and strength have stood up to some of harshest conditions in Australia. It is considered to be one of the toughest building materials in the country, which is why many builders make COLORBOND their choice of roofing brand.
And lastly, COLORBOND doesn’t just come in roofing products. You can also use the material for fencing, for walling, and for building patios and sheds.
