As home design trends continue to evolve, so too does the landscape of roofing options.
One such trend quickly gaining momentum is Basalt Colorbond® roofing, which brings a striking and modern look to any structure.
This mineral tone of the ancient rock it represents creates an intriguing contrast with other materials used in construction today, as well as a timelessly elegant look.
In this blog, we explore everything you need to know about achieving the perfect Basalr Colorbond roof for your home – even if you don’t have a metal or Colorbond roof to begin with!
We also answer some commonly asked questions and see how Globalcote’s equivalent roof membrane colour Bedrock can be applied to tiled and steel roofs.

Here’s some of the most frequently asked questions that we get about Basalt and Globalcote’s range of Colorbond roof coatings and paints.
Does Colorbond basalt look blue?
The answer to this question depends on the light source.
At first glance, Colorbond Basalt may appear to be a deep blue hue but it actually has more of a grey tone with subtle hints of blue.
Colorbond Basalt may appear slightly lighter or darker than usual but will still have that signature greyish-blue look.
Is Colorbond Basalt a warm grey?
Again, depending on the light and other external factors, it can appear warm or cool shades of grey.
What colours does Basalt Colorbond compliment?
The great thing about Basalt Colorbond is that it can complement almost any colour scheme. For those looking for an earthy feel, the darker tones of Basalt will match terracotta bricks or warm tans perfectly.
If you’re after a more modern look, then lighter shades such as cream and white can be used alongside the Basalt to create contrast.
