Know the Insulative and Noise Control Properties of Roof TilesDecember 3, 2021


roof tiles must perform following good trade practices. One of the reasons why is because roof tiles are considered to be one of the most common roof tiling products in Australia. To further promote constant and consistent improvement in both the material and usage, roof tiles must uphold the highest standard of practice for a long-lasting and attractive finish. Aside from that, there must also be a full range of products available. Also, they must be applied to all areas at all times. One way of increasing product usage and sales is by guaranteeing good insulative and noise control properties. Below is an analysis of the insulative and noise control properties of roof tiles.

Insulative Properties

Insulative properties, by definition, refer to how well a structure responds to changes in external temperature during the daily and seasonal cycles. Basically, as a homeowner you want your property to maintain a comfortable temperature inside while incurring as little energy costs as possible. This is often best achieved by first improving the insulative properties of the property by providing high levels of insulation on all surfaces and adopting passive solar techniques.

In a roof tile setup, insulative mass is to be significantly considered. A material can retain heat, which is an important aspect in most Australian climates. In Australian climates, there is a need to average out temperatures. High insulative mass materials such as clay and concrete, when used correctly, can result in advantageous heat transmission. Another properties consideration is the proportion of solar energy the roof absorbs and reflects, due to the colour of the roof tiles. Colours have a limited impact on insulative properties when elements such as sarking, insulation and ventilation are incorporated.

Noise Control Properties

Sound and noise are the basic words for anything related to noise control. Noise control properties is an important factor in assessing the quality of a roof tile. All elements of the roof play a part in limiting noise, from the external cladding of tiles or metal sheeting, the foil sarking, the airspace above the ceiling, the insulation and the ceiling material. However, the most crucial single item is generally the external roofing material.

Typically, external noise penetrates a building through windows, doors, walls and to a lesser extent - the roof. Generally, the roof would be the least important path of noise transmission through in locations where there are busy roads, railways or aircraft noise the roof becomes an element to be considered. The density of roof tiles helps reduce typical external sounds and has a sound reduction potential twice that of sheet metal roofing.
