Discover the difference with terracotta roof tiles
A house with terracotta roof tiles offers a range of benefits.

The roof is often a structure’s most commanding visual element, typically representing around 30 - 40% of the visual area of a building’s structure, while also having a huge impact on internal temperatures due its large external surface area.

Terracotta roof tiles have long been acknowledged as one of the most effective building products on the market for housing construction.

As a solid, heavyweight material, terracotta tiles have high thermal mass and help achieve optimum energy efficiency, reducing the impact of external temperature variations on the temperature of internal living areas.

Testing of similarly coloured roofing products has also shown that terracotta roof tiles can reflect more heat away from the home, resulting in lower cooling requirements when compared with other commonly used roofing materials.

The same thermal mass that contributes to their sustainability also makes roof tiles excellent sound insulators, reducing the intrusion of external noises into internal living areas.

Roof tiles can lower noise by 30 decibels, which is more than twice the noise reduction achieved by other roofing materials.

Furthermore, terracotta tiles are highly resistant to corrosion, rust, UV, as well as the ongoing effects of weather, resulting in colours that will remain stable and deliver the same high aesthetic standards for years to come, even in Australia’s harsh coastal environments.

All roofs installed by Bristile Roofing are offered with a 10 Year Total Roof Warranty that covers not just the integrity of the tiles but the entire roof installation and all accessory products used.

Roof tiles are also a popular choice with architects and building designers as they blend easily with existing buildings, while offering endless design capabilities and intricate detailing.
