Storm Endurance Benefits: What Makes Tile a Better Option During Extreme Weather Conditions

10 February 2022

Australia’s climate can be one of the extremes depending upon your location in the country. For this reason, you should ensure that your roof is sufficiently durable to last, regardless of your climate throughout the year. Although there are many choices on the market today for roofing, not all provide long-lasting results. We are here to explain why Monier concrete roof tiles will fit the bill no matter where your house is in Australia.

One of the most important decisions you can make for your house is what type of roofing material will provide long-lasting protection for your entire structure. Also, the material should be suitable for your roof’s pitch, especially when you have a low-pitch one. Not all materials are installed in the right fashion for this style of roof. We are here to explain the following characteristics and benefits of using the new Monier Elemental™ Series of roofing for your low-pitch roof.

Monier Concrete Roof Tiles Improve with Age

Similar to other concrete structural elements, Monier concrete roofing tiles become stronger with age. This is because they keep hardening with sun exposure. These tiles are one of the most durable and economical roofing choices available.

Provide High Colour Performance and Flexibility of Design

Another reason that these concrete roofing tiles are ideal for the Australian climate is that they provide high colour performance year after year. The colours are resistant to gloss fade since they contain Colour Lock Technology. As a result, they retain their colour longer than the competitors’ tiles of the same material. In addition, the colours are mixed into the concrete instead of just applied to the surface. As a result, if a tile does chip for some reason, it will not be highly noticeable. You also have design flexibility with the colours because these tiles come in a wide assortment of shades and styles.

Ideal for Beach and Marine Areas

Monier also ensures that these concrete roof tiles are sufficiently durable for beach and marine areas. They will not corrode or rust when close to saltwater, unlike certain metal roofs.

Safe for Use in Fire-Prone Areas

If you are located in a fire-prone area, you can install these concrete roof tiles with confidence that they will help protect your home effectively. We say this because concrete is resistant to fire.

Certain Monier Concrete Roof Tiles Are Compatible With the SOLARtile System by Monier

With so many Australians turning to solar energy today, Monier concrete roof tiles are ideal for this purpose since specific styles of these tiles are compatible with the SOLARtile system by Monier. For this purpose, though, you need to select from the flat patterns of these concrete tiles, which are the Horizon, Cambridge, Georgian and Madison styles.
