Gutters and Downpipes

Gutters are a trough system connected to the perimeter of the roof structure that directs the water from your roof into stormwater drains, water tanks or onto the garden via downpipes. Without it, water would run straight off the roof and erode the soil directly around your foundations. The visible erosion would be unsightly, but over time, could undermine your foundations. Poorly installed and unmaintained guttering can also create serious problems as water backs up and moves into your ceiling cavity or dry leaves in the guttering create a fire hazard. There are a number of different gutters you can get including

Box Gutters

  • A box gutter is a gutter that has been “boxed” into the middle or the edge of the roof. They are the ideal type of guttering if you don’t want to be able to actually see the gutter.  Box gutters need to be made from high quality materials, so they are generally made from Colorbond or stainless steel.  They also need to be fitted with an emergency overflow, so that water can be diverted if the gutter is blocked or if there is simply too much water. Without this, the water will go straight into the roof space instead.

Fascia or Eaves Gutters

  • A fascia gutter is a gutter that combines the gutter and the fascia together to create one system, removing the need for a traditional timber or metal fascia to be installed. A fascia gutter is instead installed directly on to the roof’s rafters.  They are made from either Zincalume or Colorbond and they are available in a range of colours, as well as either in a plain or slotted finish.  As well, fascia gutters come in a range of different profiles.  Another name for a fascia gutter is an eaves gutter.

Square Gutters

  • Square gutters, as you may expect, have a square appearance and they are available in either a low-square or hi-square profile. As they have a high capacity, square gutters can cope with high amounts of water easily.  Square gutters are generally made from Colorbond, Zincalume or galvanised steel and they are available in a wide range of colours to suit your roofing.  Square gutters have a pleasing, modern profile that suits all styles of homes.

Round Gutters

  • Round gutters are also known as half round gutters and they look like a circle that has been cut in half when you look at them side on. Round gutters are either completely semi-circular in shape or they have a straight back. Because they have such a wide diameter, they are capable of dealing with large amounts of water well and they are also largely self-cleaning.  You will find that round gutters are generally made from Colorbond, Zincalume or galvanised steel and that they are available in a wide range of colours to suit your roofing.  The clean, smooth look of round gutters makes them suitable for modern, Tuscan and Spanish style homes especially.

Quad Gutters

  • Quad gutters, also known as “D” gutters, are one of the most popular styles of gutters as it suits new homes as well as marrying in perfectly with existing gutters. Quad gutters are generally made from Colorbond, Zincalume, stainless steel or galvanised steel and they are available in different widths and profiles.  Quad gutters are made with or without slots – the slotted versions are great for areas with heavy rainfall as they allow the water to overflow.

GutterGuard and Guttermeshe

Primarily Gutters that are full of leaves and debris are a major fire risk.

Although dirty Gutters can also contaminate rainwater tanks and become a breeding ground for mosquitoes, not to mention being unsightly and creating water damage.

GutterGuard and Guttermeshe can be added to new roofs, or your own existing gutters.

They’re a great system to also prevent birds and rodents from building nests in the gutters and from entering your roof space.

Once installed, they eliminate the need to clean your gutters frequently, and they prevent the build-up of stagnant water in your gutters, which could otherwise back up and overflow into your home or serve as a breeding ground for insects.

These products will improve the longevity of your gutters, since they won’t prematurely rust and rot from the moisture and debris sitting in them.

More efficient rainwater harvesting improves the flow of water and filtering out of contaminants, and greatly reduces fire risk in bushfire prone areas.

Skylights

Get more light in your home without the hassle of doing a full remodel.

Skylights, or Skydomes, can add natural light and ventilation to a room without compromising on usable wall space. Over the last few years skylights have evolved to include Skydomes, Skytubes and Velux or equivalent. They come in various shapes and sizes or can be custom made to suit your needs with a multitude of optional extras like venting and fans, access hatches, diffusers, blinds, remote control and even weather-controlled units.

Unlike traditional windows, skylights can be installed within a day, making it one of the fastest and most inexpensive ways to transform your home with natural light. Using natural light to illuminate your space allows you to use less electrical energy, therefore reducing monthly expenses as well as creating less heat than electrical lighting, keeping your home comfortable all year round.

Whirlybirds

If you are looking to reduce the carbon footprint of your property while also improving the quality of indoor air then whirlybirds are the solution for you. Whirlybirds are a unique variety of ventilators that are typically installed on rooftops. They are shaped like a dome or bulb and on their external surface, they have fins with cavities. When the fins rotate, they create a vacuum which effectively sucks in air from the outdoors while expelling the stale air from indoors.

Whirlybirds are broadly categorised into two different types;

  1. Passive whirlybirds depend upon the wind currents to operate – even a small amount of wind is usually enough to rotate the smaller models
  2. Active whirlybirds rely on a mechanical source of energy to operate, so they can operate constantly with or without the presence of wind outdoors

Some of the benefits of installing Whirlybirds are:

  • Zero Energy – they incur no ongoing energy costs, offer excellent return on investment in the long run and require minimal maintenance.
  • Environmentally friendly – they do not release any toxic gases, fumes or by-products. They don’t consume electricity or any other conventional form of energy
  • Zero Maintenance – most whirlybirds require little to no maintenance and quality models can last for many years
  • Reduced Energy Bills – in summer they remove hot air and replace it with cooler air, reducing the need for air-conditioning.
  • Quick and Easy Installation – they can be fitted on top a small opening in the ceiling or if that’s not possible you can install them anywhere at an elevated place and then connect them to the ceiling through a duct.
  • Roof protection – they effectively ventilate the hot air that rises towards the ceiling in winter, equalising the exterior and the interior roof cavity air temperatures, reducing cavity humidity and condensation.
  • Matches any roof – regardless of the structure, style and configuration of your roof, you can easily find a whirlybird that will complement it.
  • Endless options – they come in various sizes, colours, styles and features so they are suitable for any property.

Wall Cladding

Wall cladding is a type of decorative covering intended to make a wall look like it is made of a different sortof material than it actually is. It is usually non-structural, which means that it doesn’t impact the stability or integrity of a buildings architectural core.

Wall cladding may provide benefits such as thermal insulation, weather resistance, to improve the appearance of the building and to be a control element for noise either entering or escaping. Give your Commercial or Industrial building a face lift with stylish Bluescope Colorbond or Zincalume wall cladding. Melbourne Commercial Roofing provide a range of cladding in various colours and profiles all of which are low maintenance (no painting required) and durable in all weather conditions.

Your building will look brand new and modern when it is clad with our premium high quality products.

Popular Questions

Roof designs differ from property to property. You and/or your roofer will need to choose the appropriate profile sheets for the pitch and design of your property’s roof.

The initial process of measuring the roof and advising correct products for your project
The preparation of the home and roof including access to roof, safety and skip bins
The installation of the new roofing system and final clean up.

This is the most important choice the home or property owner needs to make prior to installing a new Colorbond roof. The wrong choice can lead to a voided warranty and an incorrectly installed roof, which will leak, causing all sorts of dramas such as staining internal gyprock, mould and water damage in the roof cavity, just to name a few!
Only a LICENSED AND QUALIFIED COMPANY should be installing your new roof.
