1. Colour that lasts a lifetime
2. Never rusts or corrodes
3. Enduring beauty
When it comes to performance and colour, nothing is longer lasting than Terracotta. Monier Terracotta roof tiles are made from natural Australian clay and fired at a temperature of over 1000°C, baking the colour right into the tile, enabling it to withstand Australia’s harshest weather elements and the test of time. That’s why we offer a 50yr guarantee on both colour and performance.
Monier Terracotta roof tiles are crafted by Australians using raw materials from the Australian landscape. Every Terracotta tile has been shaped and moulded by hand, sourced and made in Vermont, VIC.
Terracotta has been used for almost six thousand years. Recently The Terracotta Army was uncovered in China immaculately preserved and found to be over 2000 years old. The proven heritage and enduring beauty of terracotta is why the industry chooses to put Terracotta on their own homes.
Terracotta has a lower embodied energy which means less energy is consumed in all processes involved in the manufacturing of a terracotta tiled roof. Terracotta maintains a consistent temperature in your home keeping your home cooler in summer and warmer in winter, lowering your energy bills. The thermal properties and natural materials enhance breathability creating a healthier home with less condensation and mould. Monier Terracotta tiles are made from naturally occurring clays, which means the water running off your roof into rainwater tanks is clean and safe to drink.
There’s a richness and depth of colour with terracotta so it will never fade, ensuring the beauty, value and integrity of your home is preserved for decades to come. Terracotta comes in a range of colours including Titan and Comet which both have a metallic finish.
