What is Zincalume?
Zincalume is a popular steel roofing material known for its toughness, durability and reliability. Made from zinc, aluminium and silicone, this robust material lasts 4x longer than galvanised steel.
Used in the Australian roofing and building industries since the 1970s, you may have been protected under a strong Zincalume roof without ever knowing it. As a product of BlueScope Steel Limited, Zincalume undergoes extensive testing to ensure lasting performance, high resistance to corrosion and a low maintenance finish that helps explain why it’s one of Brisbane’s most popular and sought after choice for roofs.
How much does a Zincalume roof cost?
If you’re looking to upgrade your current roof to Zincalume steel, you’ll want to know what type of cost you’re looking at. As one of the best selling brands of corrugated iron (the other being Colorbond), the average cost of Zincalume roofing lands at around $12.40 per m2 at 0.42 BMT (Base Metal Thickness).
When planning for a roof repair, replacement or restoration it’s important to take into account a range of other variables including:
- Roof Pitch: Steep Zincalume roofing will typically cost more than a moderately pitched roof.
- Roof Height: Multiple story homes will typically cost more due to extra materials and labour.
- Roof Design: The number of valleys, angles and hips will impact your price with more complex roofs costing more.
As an affordable option, Zincalume is an ideal material that delivers strength and durability without the premium cost. At Vincent Roofing, we understand the difficulty of planning a home renovation project or roof upgrade using “average” figures. Reach out today on 0432 660 047 to request an obligation-free quote.

Can I install a Zincalume roof by myself?
Anyone with a ladder and a spare weekend can climb on the roof and start working with Zincalume sheets – but there are plenty of DIY mistakes that can put your home, safety and budget at serious risk.
Whether you’re delaying your project (and adding costs) because of incorrect metal sheeting measurements, installing fasteners incorrectly, using the wrong underlayment (or skipping underlayment entirely), or damaging your roof while removing old tiles or metal sheeting, it’s easy to end up with a repair bill that’s significantly higher than calling in the pros to repair, relay or restore your metal roof.

How to choose between Colorbond and Zincalume Roofing
Metal roofing has exploded in popularity throughout Brisbane… but what’s right for you?
