The Terracotta Difference
Monier terracotta tiles are a sustainable product of lasting beauty. The colour never fades, as it is baked onto the surface of the natural clay, giving it qualities like no other roofing material. This is backed up by the Monier Terracotta 50 year Colour and Performance Guarantee. Practical but beautiful, classic yet contemporary, fashionable but enduring, Monier’s extensive range of terracotta roof tiles offers a selection of shapes, or profiles, whose designs have been adapted from and influenced by a variety of modern and cultural sources. Monier also offers an impressive range of natural colours and finishes to complement any design.
Perfectly timeless. Perfectly natural. Perfectly beautiful.
Terracotta possesses a lasting strength and durability, as well as great versatility and natural beauty that comes from the earth. In fact, the terracotta products we use today are made from virtually the same ingredients’ that were used to produce ancient and enduring relics that date back almost six thousand years to the Bronze Age.
Monier terracotta tiles add more than just heritage value
With the extremes of climate experienced in Australia, roofs need to be durable. In the fierce heat of summer, terracotta tiles are slow to absorb heat, and allow the roof to breathe, which helps keep your house cooler for longer. Monier terracotta tiles need little or no maintenance, and will not fade. Of course, the heritage value of a tiled roof cannot be overlooked. In suburban streets and country towns, the traditional pitched roof with its distinctive terracotta tiles has helped form the character and atmosphere of the places we call home. In fact, many heritage homes are still adorned and protected by the original roof tiles installed almost one hundred years ago. Naturally, the value of a terracotta roof is not limited to its enduring beauty and heritage qualities. As the real estate market continues to prove, the prestige, durability and practicality of a terracotta tiled roof can increase the resale value of your home.
Sophisticated and timeless, Monier concrete roof tiles are the perfect choice for any roof. With a diverse range of profiles, including the popular ‘slate look’ Cambridge tile and the minimalist Madison tile, there’s a roof tile to suit every aesthetic. With the concrete roof tile colour palette containing 18 stunning colours, Monier offers a broader and more versatile range of colours than ever before. The palette contains 18 stunning colours allowing greater flexibility when it comes to colour scheming.
The colours have then been refined and filtered by a range of experts to create something that Monier believes you will identify with and embrace. These colours respond as much to the base elements of building, as to the sky above. Where possible there is a light, medium and dark shade of each major hue, making the task of coordinating the exterior elements of a home so much easier. The end result is a palette that is more subtle, sophisticated, complementary and flexible.
Colour Application Technology
Monier’s superior colour application technology delivers colour onto the body of the tile. A water-based system that is softer on the environment yet gives a more consistent and deeper colour. Tested against traditional solvent-based systems, CAT Colour has approximately 45% better colour consistency and richness.
C-LOC – Colour Lock Technology
Monier’s unique C-LOC technology means that Monier concrete tiles retain their colour for even longer and are more resistant to gloss fade. Monier C-LOC Colour Lock Technology has an 8 x better colour performance than standard COLORBOND® Steel.
Slate has been used as roofing for many centuries, and there is no building material quite like it. It is suitable for all projects, from a heritage listed church, family home or your humble backyard gazebo. Luxury Stone’s Natural Roofing Slate guarantees long life durability with no maintenance. Natural Roofing Slate is essential in severe weather conditions such as snow, hail and strong winds. The low water absorbtion rate of slate means it is very frost resistant and will not break as a result of freezing.
