Boral Terracotta or Concrete Roofing Tiles? Consult with Ajax Gregson to Help You!!!March 24, 2017


When trying to select between Boral terracotta or concrete roofing tiles for your home, there is no better place to turn for help than Ajax Gregson Tiles. We offer both types of tiles along with a professional installation for residents in the Melbourne area of Australia. While the two tiles differ in their materials and lifespan, they both perform effectively, and protects your house in a durable, attractive manner throughout the years.

Characteristics of Boral Terracotta Roof Tiles

With three profiles to choose from, you will discover the right Boral terracotta roof tile to provide a timeless look to a traditional home. A kiln-firing process provides a permanent gloss or matte finish to these tiles. Even under the harshest of weather conditions, terracotta roofs will last for at least 50 years, if not longer.

Description of Boral Concrete Roofing Tiles

Six profiles are available in Boral concrete roof tiles and colours vary between the profiles, but some of the shades are Husk, Shale, Terra Rossa, Walnut and Ebony. If you are roofing your house on a limited budget, these concrete tiles are less pricey than the terracotta ones are, but the lifespan of the roof is only 20 years instead of 50 years for the terracotta roof.

Boral Terracotta and Concrete Roofing Tiles Share Certain Traits

Even though these tiles differ from each other in a number of ways, they also share the following traits:

  • High Thermal Performance - Boral concrete and terracotta tiles help keep your house warm in the winter and cool in the summer. With the right installation methods, roofs with either type of tile provide effective insulation.
  • Various Design Possibilities - Since different profiles are available in each type of tile, there are various design possibilities for your roof to suit your specific architectural style.
  • Low Maintenance - Both types of tiles require little maintenance since they do not corrode or rust. When a section suffers damage, individual tiles are replaceable without disturbing the rest of the roof.
  • Effective Acoustic Capabilities - These tiles protect the home from external noises, such as ones from vehicle traffic and weather incidences.
  • Salt-Safe for Marine Areas
  • Frost-Resistant during the Winter Months
  • Wind Resistant - Both of these tiles are resistant to blowing off the roof during windy conditions.
  • Fire Resistant - Concrete and terracotta are resistant to fire. For this reason, both are ideal for bushfire-prone areas of this country.
