Concrete Roof Tiles
Modern concrete tiles, made from cement, sand and pigments, can replicate the appearance of a broad array of distinctive tile designs. As such they offer the widest selection of profiles and colours, while remaining relatively cost-effective.
Boral concrete tiles are manufactured using an extrusion process resulting in the utmost strength and density. Following moulding and colouring we apply a sealant finish that protects against efflorescence, a salty white deposit that can form on masonry and concrete products.
Concrete tiles are made from graded sands and cement to ensure the body of the tile conforms to the Australian Standard of water absorption of less than 10 per cent. Numerous accessories are available to enhance the overall appearance of a concrete tiled roof, including seamless ridge-capping for the ultimate clean-line look.
With proven performance and an attractive appearance, concrete tiles are Australia’s most popular choice for value for money.
Our concrete tiles are manufactured from durable concrete made to strict strength specifications, with their strength actually improving with age.
Extensive colour range
Whether it’s the vibrancy of our colour-on surface finishes or the longevity of colour- through options, there is a concrete tile to complement any colour scheme.
Terracotta Roof Tiles
Meaning ‘baked earth’ in Italian, terracotta, as the name suggests is a natural clay product that has been used throughout the ages for protection against the elements.
Boral terracotta tiles are manufactured using select clays that are kiln-fired to temperatures of 1100°C, resulting in a strong yet lightweight roofing material of exceptional quality.
Integrity is maintained with enhanced colour performance, and a vitreous coating that makes these tiles impervious to harsh UV exposure and pollutants.
High quality premium finish
Made from natural clay with a choice of glazed, semi-glazed or unglazed finishes, terracotta tiles exude character and quality that cannot be replicated.
Superior colour-fast properties
The ceramic colour is applied to each tile, which is then individually kiln-fired for outstanding colour performance and negligible maintenance.
Terracotta roof tiles offer three distinct profiles for greater design flexibility to achieve a wide range of house designs. The Boral Terracotta Shingle™ is the only flat terracotta tile to achieve a low 15 degree pitch.
