Have you ever driven by someone’s house and wondered why they have their roof in that colour? Or why did they choose steel over tiles?
The type of material you use on your roof, and the colour you choose will have a lasting impact on the temperature, energy and heating or cooling costs for the life of your home.
Having a cooler, more energy efficient building makes financial as well as environmental sense, so your choice of roof material is important. In the Innovation House we will trial a new product by COLORBOND®, called Coolmax® Steel in Whitehaven®. COLORBOND® Coolmax® steel aims to assist in maximising the thermal performance of your building, by potentially helping to reduce the annual cooling energy costs of your building by up to 7.5% when compared to COLORBOND® steel in Surfmist®.
In late 2012 the Innovation House had its roof installed, and as you can see it is quite a feature.
There are a number of incentives to installing the COLORBOND® Coolmax® steel including the potential for a reduction on the capacity of the air-conditioning equipment you install, as well as a payback on your initial investment premium within 5 years. If you’re interested in finding out more email firstname.lastname@example.org or give the office a call on (07) 4758 4758
