Help Me Choose

Visually your roof contributes significantly to the overall look of your home, as around 30% of your home’s exterior is made up of the roof. Choosing the right roof tiles is an important and easy way to add beauty, character and value to your house. To help with choosing the right tile, here are some things to consider:

Step 1: Selecting a Look - Classic vs Contemporary

If you prefer a more contemporary, minimalist look, choose a flat tile like the Horizon tile which comes with Aline ridging.
For a more classic look, then select a more contoured tile, like the Hacienda. These tiles come with lapped ridging and a
perfect for creating a traditional feel.

Step 3: Colour & Finish

Colour and texture play a big part in creating the right look for your home. Think about the the type of finish you would like. Do you like a high shine look? Then a glazed terracotta tile is for you. Do you prefer a more natural look? Consider a matte earth tone.

Step 4: Sarking – Peace of Mind

Sarking

You only get one chance to install sarking and that is when you install a new roof. At monierprime we believe the benefits of sarking far outweigh the incremental cost. Sarking is a flexible membrane that is laid under the roof battens during the roof installation. It helps protect your home from the elements and improves the overall insulation of your roof.
