The Benefits of Metal Roofing

You can't find a more durable or safer metal than steel and it鈥檚 no surprise that steel is the metal that's the most widely used in construction products.

Here are some of the main benefits of using metal roofing on new residential homes.

Designed for Australian Weather

A huge benefit of steel roofing is that it's made for Australia's challenging weather conditions. Because a steel roof is remarkably secure, safe and weather tight, it doesn't peel, crack or rust. Steel roofing can withstand harsh weather and won't fracture during hailstorms. A metal roof doesn't soak up water, so it doesn't add additional water to a structure's frame.

Safety Features

A steel roof is one of the safest roofs a homeowner can find. In addition to being able to endure severe Australian weather conditions, a steel roof is non-combustible, meaning it doesn't spark.

Lightweight & Quality

Even though steel roofing is incredibly strong and durable, it's also exceptionally lightweight. An average metal roof only weighs about 1.5 tonnes, which is a little less than the weight of a regular vehicle meaning there鈥檚 less load on your frame.

More Than Thirty Colour Options

When it comes to colour options, there's a rainbow of colours from which to choose. Keep in mind that Stoddart supplies and installs roofing and rainwater products in more than 30 colours and finishes.

When deciding on a colour, choose one that can complement the colour and style of your house. Because colour reproductions on a computer screen can vary, it's best to check a specific shade against an actual sample of a product before making a purchase. 

Energy Efficient and Environmentally Friendly

Many Australians choose steel roofing because of its energy efficiency. Steel roofs are environmentally friendly. In fact, at the end of its life, a steel roof is 100 percent recyclable. This is not the case for other roofing materials.

10 Reasons to Choose A Stoddart Steel House Frame

麻豆社区app Steel Framing

A home is a big investment, and it's worth every penny. After all, it's your personal space, your protection, and the setting in which you raise a family. Naturally, homeowners want to use the highest-quality building materials to ensure their home will last as long as they want to live there. Or if your home is an investment, you want to protect it for the long term and not be worrying about ongoing costs and repairs.

That's really the only reason you need to choose steel framing for a house, but we've got 10 reasons, in case you're curious:

Termite Resistant

 are a bit of a problem in Australia. There are about 300 different species of termites in the country, and one of them, the , is the most destructive in the world. If you're building a home with a wood frame, it's essential to check regularly for termites as the damage may quickly move to the very framework of the home and you might not even realize it until something collapses. With a steel frame, this isn't a concern. Superficial termite damage to wood siding, for example, is more easily remedied. (Of course, you can eliminate that risk, as well, by choosing vinyl, metal, or fiber cement siding.)


There's a reason skyscrapers are built of steel. It's incredibly strong and durable. 

No Warping

Over time, sunlight, humidity, water, temperature changes, and pressure can cause wood to bend and rot, which again can damage the structural integrity of a home and lead to additional problems with the building. For example, you might find a door or a window that starts to stick because a warped beam is putting pressure against the door or window frame. Steel doesn't warp.


See above: a .

Fire Resistant

As another safety bonus, steel frames won't burn in the terrible event of a fire.

Straighter Lines

With steel, we can achieve straighter lines and more precise angles than we can with wood framing for greater aesthetics and structural soundness. Steel allows your home to maintain its shape over the long term.


Wood grain varies throughout a piece of lumber. That makes it beautiful for furniture, but the naturally occurring weaker areas aren't ideal for a building frame. Steel is consistently strong from one end to another.

Less Maintenance

This is the reward you reap because of the benefits listed above. When your home is less prone to damage, you're less likely to be faced with costly repairs and upkeep.  


Since you don't have to worry about termites or anything else destroying your frame, there's no reason to treat it with chemicals you really don't want anywhere in your home. Along those eco-friendly lines, . In the unlikely event that you ever tear your house down and start over, that steel framing can be used again, which is good news for the world we live in. Finally, because of the controlled conditions under which steel is produced, .

Cost Effective

Though steel framing may cost more than wood, it pays for itself fairly quickly. You save money every year on maintenance and you can't insure against termite damage so repairs on timber will be out of pocket. 

Building a home is exciting because you have so many choices. When it comes to framing, the obvious choice is a steel frame from the 麻豆社区app.

Your Garage Door: The Gateway to Your 麻豆社区app

When you're building a new house you'll get the chance to make it your own during the colour selection process. When you start choosing upgrades, you usually look first to the inside. You want more functional storage space, granite or marble bench tops, or new hardwood floors. You probably aren't even thinking about your garage door. 

But you really should.
