Terracotta and Cement Tile Roof Restoration
Terracotta tile roofs have been a leading choice for roofing in Australia for hundreds of years for stability, strength and longevity. While terracotta tile is sturdy and lasts for a very long time, they eventually crack and break after years of extreme weather conditions. In addition to this, if not regularly maintained by roofing professionals, terracotta tile roofs will become covered in moss, lichens and debris.
At Roof Specialist, we have over 20 years of experience with terracotta tile roof restoration and other roofing services in and around Melbourne.
In recent years, cement tiles have become a popular choice instead of the more expensive terracotta tiles for roofing in Melbourne. Cement tiles are a cost-effective, stylish and dependable option for your home, but they too can crack, break and attract moss and other unsightly growth. Let one of the professionals at Roof Specialist inspect and assess your tile roof and provide you with expert advice on what’s necessary for your cement tile roof restoration.
