Roof tile specialist Boral Roofing recommends concrete and terracotta tiles for use as roof tiles.
Given the wide choice of concrete and terracotta tiles available in the market today in terms of materials, finishes, colours and profiles, Boral Roofing encourages builders, architects and specifiers to consider them in their projects.
The roof is usually the largest surface area of a house and materials selection heavily impacts both performance and aesthetic longevity. Boral divisional marketing manager, Glenn Simpkin explains that tiles can influence the energy efficiencies of a home as homeowners move towards passive home building materials and designs. With the roof being a key source of heat gain and loss, up to 35% of a home’s interior temperature is gained or lost through the ceiling. 
Simpkin advises homeowners to consider climatic and environmental conditions while selecting a roofing solution. Boral roof tiles, for instance are made to Australian Standards, and are salt-safe and frost resistant, making them ideal for most projects.
Homeowners also need guidance on style preferences as they may not be aware that their colour or look selection has compatible colour and profile alternatives available in concrete and terracotta tiles. Boral’s roof tiles collection has a tile to suit all architectural styles and exterior finishes.
