Cheltenham is a great value suburb with good infrastructure, is family-friendly, and is safe. It is undergoing major gentrification and development at the moment. It is no wonder why Australians of all ages from all over are starting to move to Cheltenham. Whether you are a first-time homeowner or a seasoned one, it is always a prerequisite to have your roofing inspected and fixed when needed. We wear our homes as a symbol of pride in Australia. We want our homes and our streets to look as aesthetically pleasing as can be.  They become a mirror of our personalities, families, and lifestyles.

 Your roof is one of these options, therefore the colour, form, and size are crucial from the start. The roof can serve as the focal point of a well-planned design. A Colorbond steel roof allows you a variety of options in terms of colour, texture, and style while still fulfilling the demands of the harsh Australian climate, which includes extremes of heat and cold as well as dust, rain, wind, and hail. As a result, Colorbond steel is tested at outdoor locations throughout Australia as well as in accelerated laboratory testing.

Roof Plumbers Cheltenham

Stormwater plumbing includes roof plumbing. It is impossible to overestimate the importance of gutter and roof maintenance. Leaks after a thunderstorm may be caused by a clogged downpipe and water collection on your roof or ceiling. You may also notice rot and mould growth on your roof and fascias, which can be harmful to the structure of your roof. We can assist with any plumbing work related to roofs, flashings, gutters, downpipes, and stormwater drains. ELR Plumbing, Colorbond roofers, has considerable experience with roof plumbing, so we can diagnose your roof drainage issues, provide appropriate advice, and execute a long-term solution.


There are numerous materials that can be utilized for roofs; however, we have seen over the years how well these materials endure the environment and normal wear and tear. ELR PLumbing selects Colorbond metal roofing because we want to provide our customers with a metal roof that will not only look excellent but will also last for many years. Nothing is worse than a damaged roof that causes you and your family discomfort and discontent. When your roof is damaged, you open the door to a slew of other issues, such as water damage in your home. When you have water damage within your home, you attract further problems, such as termites. ELR Plumbing can help you address all your roofing concerns for your Cheltenham homes. 


We may build your shed in dozens of different colours to match other Colorbond steel elements on your property, such as fences or roofs, or just to provide an appealing and lasting finish.

Colorbond grades vary, and selecting the proper one for your new roof is heavily influenced by the area in which you reside. Standard Colorbond steel is one of Australia’s most popular roofing materials, with a wide range of applications. It’s ideal if you live more than 500 meters from the seaside or an industrial area.

Ultra Colorbond – Colorbond Ultra offers all of the advantages of conventional Colorbond but delivers additional coverage in harsh conditions. Colorbond Ultra is intended for homes within 100-200 meters of breaking waves or industrial pollution. It is also appropriate for properties located within 100 meters of a calm maritime environment, such as a bay or river estuary. Colorbond Ultra sheeting’s warranty is determined not only by the distance from the nearest marine or industrial environment but also by how dynamic that environment is.

Standard Colorbond – BlueScope’s Colorbond steel is specifically engineered to fulfil the roofing needs of Australians living in tough conditions. It is one of the most preferred roofing solutions because it is suitable for most locations and designs. Colorbond steel can also be used to make eaves gutters, fascia, and downpipes. If the property to which they are applied is at least 100 meters distant from the sea, they are additionally covered by a manufacturer warranty of up to 12 years.





This roofing material increases the energy efficiency of your home. It features Thermatech® technology, which reflects sunlight and keeps your home cool, eliminating the need for air conditioning. Furthermore, adopting ultra-energy-efficient lighter roof colours may result in a loss in roof insulation.


Colorbond roofing requires little maintenance and is approved to withstand harsh Australian conditions. Colorbond roofing is easy to maintain and lasts a long time due to its resilience. It can be kept clean by simply washing it down with water every now and again. Your Colorbond roof may last for at least 30 years if properly maintained. This proves time and time again that although the initial costs may be higher than other types of roofing, the thousands of dollars you can save from less maintenance is definitely a plus!


According to mythology, Australia experiences terrible weather, with high UV and unpredictable weather, particularly in Melbourne, which has four seasons in one day. In Australia’s tough climate, Colorbond roofing has been put to the test. This roofing material can tolerate extremes in temperature, cold, rain, and wind. It’s even suitable for usage in wildfire-prone areas. Colorbond steel has been rigorously tested for corrosion, durability, and exposure, and it is both robust and secure in any environment.


Colorbond roofing is marketed as Australia’s most durable metal roofing material, and one of its primary selling points is its extended lifespan. Colorbond roofing has a long service life. This roofing material is built to last thanks to its Activate Technology and five layers of protection that meet Australian Standards (AS1397 and AS/NZS 2728). Each layer adds strength, protection, and technology to the product, increasing its durability.


Colorbond roofing installation is a quick roofing operation since the large sheets allow you to quickly cover large areas of your roof. When compared to a tile or slate roof, Colorbond installation expedites the process, whether for repairs or a full roof replacement. This is why tin is preferred over tile by so many Australians (tiled roofing to metal roofing). Metal roofing, such as Colorbond roofing, may be installed faster than other types of roofing. As a result, if you’re remodelling or simply upgrading your roof as part of the building of your home, other services and contractors won’t have to wait as long for the roof to be erected, saving you time and money.


Your roof’s environmental impact does not end with the installation. Colorbond roof sheets are a low-maintenance option that is also environmentally beneficial. Colorbond roofing has the colour baked deep into the metal, thus it does not need to be repainted as frequently as other roofing materials. Having to seal or paint a roof every year necessitates the purchase of paint or sealant. Both of these materials necessitate the use of energy and resources to manufacture. When considering how ecologically friendly you want to be, you should also consider the impact of delivering roofing supplies to your property. To convey bulky, heavy objects, an appropriate carrier must be selected.  Colorbond roof sheets are lightweight, making them easy to transport and handle.

Choosing to replace your old tile roof is a big decision for many Cheltenham homeowners, and converting your roof from tile to Colorbond is an increasingly popular and cost-effective solution. A tile to metal roof conversion is like removing the weight of the world from your shoulders. The primary problem in changing a property from a tiled roof to a metal roof cover is the substantial weight decrease. When combined with severe winds, this considerable change in weight circumstances can cause massive uplift on the roof and thus possibly damage difficulties. So the main challenge may not be holding the roof up, but rather hanging on to the roof during a strong wind event. Another issue why people choose metal roofing conversion is that older tile roofs absorb water, which not only adds to the weight of the roof but also reduces the amount of water that can be collected. This could be essential during times of extreme drought. Tiles have a tendency to crack, allowing dirt to accumulate and moss and mould to grow, contaminating your drinking water. Rain collected by a Colorbond roof is suitable for residential usage.

Ridge vents are the most popular metal roof ventilation solution and are an efficient way to provide optimum attic ventilation.

Most metal roofs do not require a thorough cleaning every year. They require little maintenance due to their strong performance. To keep your roof looking its best, wELR Plumbing recommend deep cleaning it every 2-3 years, depending on your environment.

This makes metal roofs one of the most fire-resistant roofing materials on the market.
