Terracotta’s additional appeal – Colour Never Fades.

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.
monierprime has a diverse and modern palette of colours and finishes to choose from. From light neutrals and clays through to sophisticated dark tones and matte through to glazed finishes.

Step 4: Sarking – Peace of Mind
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.
