Did you know all Achieve Homes in NSW and ACT are built with steel frames as standard? While timber has traditionally been used for house framing, we believe there are myriad benefits to using steel frames – from durability to sustainability and fire resistance.
We’re passionate about creating the best homes possible for our customers that are built to last. This is why we’ve partnered with AusSteel, creator of the Ultimate Steel Building System, to bring our projects to life using Colorbond steel frames.
Read on to discover why we think this is the best of the best.
It goes without saying that steel is tough, but its benefits extend way beyond physical strength.
Colorbond steel is crafted from five layers, including a steel base, a metallic coating to prevent erosion and a chip-resistant top coat.
It has undergone rigorous testing both in real conditions and in a laboratory to withstand the extreme Australian weather, from tropical heat to dust, rain and hail – you name it. This provides reassurance of exactly how the material will perform on your home, offering protection when you need it the most. Colorbond steel can also be used as part of a compliant system in bushfire-prone areas.
Its durability and resilience makes Colorbond sheeting long-lasting and sustainable. Plus, Thermatech solar reflective technology deflects more of the sun’s heat, meaning lower air conditioning costs and reduced heat stress on the roof. There’s nothing we love more than a home than looks good and is low maintenance: you can simply clean Colorbond steel down with water in areas where rain cannot reach.
