At KC Roof Plumbing, we want our customers to be happy, and as such, when it’s time to choose the right colour for your colorbond roof, we will always strive to be as helpful as possible. That being said, choosing the right colour can sometimes be more than just an aesthetic choice. In fact, and when we’re talking about things like energy efficiency and thermal ratings, choosing a colorbond roof with a lower solar absorptance means it will reflect more heat in comparison to a colorbond roof with a higher solar absorptance. This, naturally, will keep the roof space and home cooler on a hot day.
Typically, the solar absorptance is related to the colour of the roof, (again, reiterating the fact that choosing a colour isn’t always just for the look) which simply means the darker your colorbond roof, the higher the solar absorptance rate.
