Corten steel is a favourite material of our architects in Geelong. “Corten steel” is a group of steel alloys that have been developed to form a rust-like appearance when exposed to the weather over time. This “rust” appearance is quite stable as the steel forms a layer of protective coverage (patina) on its surface to stop it degrading in the elements as most other types of steel would.

Our Geelong builders have incorporated Corten roofing into the Natural Elements Home. The rust-look of the Corten steel roof floats above the rammed-earth and recycled timber walls to create a minimalist home of exceptional style and quality.

Corten cladding and Corten steel siding can also be added to our Topic Builders & Architects Geelong house plans as a stunning architectural feature. Corten steel cladding and Corten steel panels can blend and complement the natural surrounds of your home and will gradually become more textured and weathered as the Corten steel is exposed to the elements.
