Stay away from Colorbond for your roof unless you like standing near a window anytime you want to make a mobile phone call.
Whilst the "faraday cage" effect can impact mobile phone reception, attributing poor mobile phone reception solely to a colorbond roof is nonsense. In any event, many tiled roofs have foil sarking which would have the exact same transmission properties as colorbond.
I would be questioning the adequate coverage of my mobile phone provider before making statements about roofing material.

On the upside will the colorbond roof help protects us from Energy Lifeforce Aliens?

In this case it is the side that has been rendered but not the front, but the result is the same - odd. I agree with jas0nt above, should’ve gotten the front…
