Terracotta Tiles

Are you looking for someone to rejuvenate, repair or install a terracotta tile roof? You’ve come to the right place. Give Sandhurst Roofing a call on 0448 812 800.

The terracotta tile roofing on your home needs maintenance and repair over time to retain its aesthetic appeal, as well as its safety. Terracotta tile roofing offers a luxurious and elegant appearance and to some extent keeps the temperature of the room cool in summer and warm in winter. However, over time your roof loses its glaze, and individual tiles begin to crack. The terracotta tile roof restoration experts at Sandhurst Roofing will take care of all aspects and restore your roof back to its original state.

Process clay is used to make Terracotta tiles, they are very robust and sturdy, but over time can become brittle and cracked due to weathering, hail storm damage, or damage from other external forces.Terracotta tiles are individual blocks of tiles placed next to each other, a crack on a single tile doesn’t affect its immediate neighbouring tile. This is why sometimes only tiles with cracks and breaks need to be replaced and not the entire roof. In some cases, all of the roof tiles have become far too brittle, and the whole roof will need to be replaced. Breakage, apart from external factors can be avoided by continual maintenance. Our team of experienced professionals are equipped to not only replace broken terracotta tiles but install the new tiles with precision and in conjunction can clean and condition the existing tiles to enhance your roofs longevity.

The roof surfaces meet at several edge lines, ridge capping is used to cover the space in-between the two surfaces. The ridge cap tiles are of a slightly triangular shape and are made from the same material as the rest of the roof tiles. Ridge caps are held to the terracotta tiles that cover the roof surface with a coating of mortar or flexible bedding compound. Their primary use is to prevent leaks by blocking roof cavities from any rainwater, as water accumulation can severely damage the inner structure of your roof. Over time the mortar that holds the ridge caps to the tiles loses its grip and is at risk of becoming cracked, compromising the stability of the ridge capping, allowing water to seep through.

If you notice any cracks in existing tiles or mortar breaking free, give Sandhurst Roofing a call on 0448 812 800 to discuss your roofing requirements.

Steve and his team did a fabulous job, I was away working whilst the work was in process , but saw the progress for each of the first two days in the evening and on the third day the final touches were done. The work looks first rate and all of the old gutter was removed very neatly without any drama or mess. It was a pleasure to deal with Steve who was very friendly and accommodating, plus the price was considerably cheaper than that quoted by a rival company. I'm now just waiting for it to rain!

Steve was very punctual with coming to assess our roofing situation. He discussed with me every aspect of the job required for the replacement of our very old tin roof.This all happened at a particularly busy time for Steve's company and he kept me up to date with the preparation of the job. Once it started it was a very slick operation completed within 4 days. I wasn't there during the day but saw the results of progress each afternoon. They have done a very neat professional job and I am very happy with the result. Steve was a pleasure to deal with. Well done.

Our roof looks amazing, we had over 70 cracked tiles, they replaced those and the roof needed re pointing as well as it was flaking and damaged. Due to weather it took a few weeks and to ensure it looked perfect Matty & the team delayed works but kept us in the loop all the time, but it was worth wait. Our roof looks brand new. They clean up of the site afterwards, ensure you happy with that and nothing is too much trouble. Thank you
