Home Living : September 6th 2011
HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, September 6, 2011 7 HOMELIVING Tiles are money-wise and energy savers JANITA SINGH Terracotta tiles are a long- lasting and popular roofing option. Choosing the right roofing material is one of the most important steps to building a new home or extension. As well as looking good, terracotta roof tiles reduce energy consumption, are low-maintenance and fire resistant. Boral national marketing manager David Francis said they are still one of the most popular roofing options. ''While architectural styles and materials come and go, the roof tile has endured the test of time,'' Mr Francis said. ''The characteristics and benefits of terracotta roof tiles add up to a quality product that is durable, easy to maintain and remains attractive throughout its lifetime.'' Made of natural clay, terracotta tiles are coated with a ceramic colouring and kiln-fired for enduring colour performance. Research shows that with roofs of the same colour, tiles need less cooling energy than the most common metal alternative. Another advantage is that the tiles need little or no maintenance. If damaged in a storm, each damaged tile can be easily replaced. According to the executive director of the Roofing Tile Association of Australia, Tony Tanner, most roof tiles come with a 50-year guarantee on structural performance, won't become porous and leak if installed correctly and will not be damaged by coastal conditions and salt.

You can expect a tiled roof to last 50 years; Tiles come in a range of shapes and colours to suit any style of home; If damaged, a single tile can be removed, a much more cost- effective option than replacing whole sections of the roof; A tiled roof offers excellent sound insulation from traffic and aircraft; The density of terracotta tiles also means good thermal insulation, keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter; The heaviness of tiles provides good storm protection; Sarking is used under tiles. It is a type of foil and can reflect up to 95 per cent of radiant heat away from your roof space on a hot summer day. Sarking also helps in keeping dust out and protecting your home during bushfires and storms; Tiles are fire resistant, making them a good option in areas prone to bush fires.
