    Frequently Asked Questions

    Roof tiles are Australia’s most popular choice of roofing material. They come in a range of colours and profiles and offer great value for money. Monier produces both concrete and terracotta roof tiles in a comprehensive range of on-trend colours and in both modern and classic profiles. Monier’s concrete roof tiles are made from selected concrete, sand and pigments. The concrete used is made to strict specifications and independent testing shows that concrete actually becomes stronger and less porous with age, which is why it is used to build bridges, roads and skyscrapers. With added features such as seamless A-line ridging, concrete tiles can create the ultimate, sleek, clean-line look. Terracotta roof tiles have been in use for centuries throughout most of the world and it is not uncommon for them to provide more than century of service. Monier’s Terracotta roof tiles are a natural, kiln-fired clay product that provides a strong, high quality roofing material with good looks and long-lasting resistance to the elements. The fired-in colour of Monier Terracotta roof tiles will never fade and their vitreous coating makes them impervious to moisture, harsh UV rays and corrosive airborne pollutants. Depending on your specific needs, Monier will have a roof tile in either concrete or terracotta that suits your tastes to a T.
    Roof tiles are ideal for coastal locations that endure the wind, spray and salt of the ocean. All Monier concrete and terracotta roof tiles are salt safe and will not corrode over time, however Terracotta is the ultimate roofing product in these conditions given its performance and also colour warranty of 50 years. Some other roofing product are not warrantied if you live near the coast. Tiles are ideal for coastal regions as they are suitable for the high salt content of marine environments. In the absence of rain, metal roofing may require hosing down in high salt concentration areas, which means extra maintenance, and can pose difficulties with water restrictions. Roof tiles are a low maintenance option in coastal areas.
    Monier’s terracotta and concrete roof tiles offer unique protective qualities during extreme weather events. Even during a severe downpour, roof tiles absorb negligible amounts of water. This absorption does not affect the tile’s weatherproofing and in fact, independent research indicates that roof tiles absorb less water as they age, improving performance over time. The weight of concrete and terracotta roof tiles offer more resistance to high winds than lighter weight materials such as metal sheeting. If damage is sustained during a storm, you only need to replace the individual damaged tiles rather than entire sheets, as in the case of metal roofing. Flexible pointing material is used to fix ridge capping, enhancing security in high winds. In addition, roof tiles are clipped to secured roof battens to ensure stability in a range of weather extremes. There are clip systems tailored to different roofing pitches and configurations, so you know you are getting the best solution for your home. For maximum protection, ensure you have a high quality sarking, professionally installed roof tiles and the correct clips to keep everything exactly where it should be – on the roof!
    Non-combustible materials like terracotta and concrete provide excellent protection against radiant heat from bushfires. Tile roofs have been tested and pass the requirements of AS3959-2009 for flame zone construction. Given that a large percentage of house fires start after the fire-front has passed, and the majority of these start on the roof, it makes sense to select the most fire proof materials possible. When used in combination with a fire retardant sarking such as Safety Sarking, roof tiles provide a high level of fire safety and security.
    Yes. Monier’s concrete and terracotta roof tiles are impervious to frost and ice and so are ideal for those living in colder climates. Made from durable materials, they will never warp, no matter how cold it gets.
