How To Match Your Colorbond Gutters With The Roof

Choose the Perfect Colorbond Gutter 

When it comes to the exterior of your property, it’s easy to overlook the gutters. Often considered a functional necessity, gutters are vital in preventing water damage. However, they can also significantly impact the overall look and feel of your home or building. 

Unleashing the Potential  

Gone are the days of dull, uninspiring gutters. Colorbond guttering has gained immense popularity in Australia, becoming a go-to choice for refurbishments, new builds, and commercial constructions. The durability of Colorbond gutters makes them an excellent investment, ensuring both functionality and long-lasting beauty.  

COLORBOND® steel gutters have been thoroughly tested and perfected over 50 years in Australia’s toughest environments. They are more than just a construction material, but a long-lasting investment for your family’s home.  

The Power of Colour  

Gutters don’t have to be a mundane element of your exterior design. By carefully selecting the colour of your Colorbond gutters, you can enhance the aesthetic appeal of your property. COLORBOND® steel offers a wide variety of 22 bold colours in the core range and six extra colours in premium Matt finish. With this range, you can easily find the perfect complement to your home’s design and enhance its overall look. 

Choosing the Right Colour  

Selecting the perfect Colorbond gutter colour may seem overwhelming. To make the decision easier, consider the following checklist:  

  • Assess your property’s existing colour scheme: Look at the colours already present on your roof, walls, and other exterior elements. Choose a gutter colour that harmonizes and complements these existing hues, creating a cohesive and unified appearance.  
  • Consider the surrounding environment: Consider the natural surroundings, such as landscaping, foliage, and neighbouring properties. Opt for a gutter colour that blends harmoniously with the environment, enhancing the overall visual appeal. 
  • Reflect your personal style: Gutters are an opportunity to express your unique taste and style. Whether you prefer bold and vibrant colours or subtle and sophisticated tones, select a colour that reflects your personality and adds a touch of individuality to your property.

Determine Your Exterior Style  

As Colorbond is available in such a wide range of colours and matt finishes, they are often split into categories like Classic or Contemporary colour palettes. To find out your best Colorbond gutter colour, determine which style category your property belongs to first. Here are some examples of styles to consider:  

  • Heritage  
  • Contemporary  
  • Victorian  
  • Modern  
  • Traditional  

Choosing an exterior colour palette involves considering passing trends and different approaches to colour coordination. Whether you match or complement your Colorbond gutters with your roof depends on your desired outcome—revival, reinvention, or innovation. The choice is entirely yours.  

When selecting the colour for your Colorbond gutters, ask yourself if you want them to match or complement your roof colour. Many exterior designers have recently opted to match COLORBOND gutters with the roof. While it may bring to mind the double-denim trend of the ’90s (which is making a comeback!), there’s a solid reason why “matchy-matchy” works for exteriors. A consistent colour between the roof and gutters allows them to blend seamlessly into the facade, creating an extension of the roof rather than a distinct boundary. 

Remember, using the same colour for your roof, and gutters avoids drawing excessive attention and promotes a harmonious look. Achieving this unity makes your gutters an integrated part of the roof, enhancing the overall appearance of your property.  

So, whether you embrace the double-denim or seek a different approach, matching your gutters with the roof can create a cohesive and visually appealing exterior.  

Avoid Colour Clashes 

When selecting the colour of your gutters, one of the biggest mistakes you can make is choosing a colour that clashes with the exterior walls. The key is to select a Colorbond gutter colour that seamlessly blends with the overall look of your property without drawing excessive attention. Opt for a colour that matches the exterior wall paint. By harmonizing the colours, your gutters become less visually prominent, allowing the architecture to shine as the focal point.  

Matching Trims and Creating Harmony  

To achieve a visually appealing exterior, many homeowners match their gutters and fascia board with the trims on windows and doors. This creates a cohesive outline for the building, enhancing its overall aesthetics. However, the suitability of this approach depends on the property type. Heritage buildings, for instance, can benefit from highlighted trims that match the gutters, while contemporary buildings with extensive glass or mirrored walls may benefit from a different approach.  


If you’re still deciding on the perfect colour scheme for your gutter, ROC locations have a COLOBOND sample board and brochures available. You can choose as many colours as you need to take home and compare them against your house to ensure you find the perfect match for your home and style.
