What You Need to Know about Terracotta Roof Installation and Repair in Sydney
Successfully installing a terracotta roof takes precision and forethought. The quality, integrity, and color of terracotta roof tiles hold up well over time. Plus, the material is naturally fire and frost resistant, making it an ideal building material for brush fire-prone areas and places that experience harsh, cold weather. City2Surf roofers are highly experienced with a wide range of roofing materials, including concrete and terracotta roof tiles. Below, we’ll outline the advantages of a terracotta roof, and how City2Surf Roofing can meet your installation and roofing repair needs in the Sydney area.
Why would you want a terracotta roof?
Terracotta means ‘baked earth’ in Italian, and these tiles are ideal for the Australian climate. Australia experiences some of the most extreme weather conditions in the world, and the terrain is also prone to brush fires. Terracotta roofs in the Marseilles-style, where the individual tiles interlock, became popular in Australia around WWI. Since then, the terracotta roof style became a mainstay of Australian architectural design.
- Terracotta roof tiles are durable
- Aesthetically pleasing
- Come in a wide range of colors and profiles
- Protect against natural, extreme temperature fluctuations.
Terracotta roof tiles will store daytime temperatures. At night, they’ll release the heat they’ve been absorbing throughout the day. Terracotta roofs are virtually maintenance free, and excellent heat absorbers. If you’re looking for a roofing material that is ideal for Sydney weather and won’t stress you out with high maintenance costs, you may want to consider installing a terracotta roof.
City2Surf Roofing’s contractors are experienced with terracotta roofing materials. We guarantee that a terracotta roof from us will meet your highest expectations.
What are the disadvantages of installing a terracotta roof?
Terracotta, while you can’t beat the unique look of the material, is one of the more expensive roofing tiles on the market. Some property owners may shy away from the higher upfront costs of terracotta roof installation and opt for more affordable concrete roof tiles.
Also, you need to consider the weight of a terracotta roof. Terracotta tiles are some of the heaviest roofing materials. Your building may not be able to handle the added pressure.
