Terracotta Roof Restoration Brisbane


Terracotta roof tiles, otherwise known as clay tiles, are a popular and long-lasting roofing solution as they are waterproof and a great noise and heat insulator, offering strong protection against the harsh Australian elements. With an excellent reputation for their high quality and timeless look, terracotta tile roofs maintain their value for a very long time if they are maintained properly. Right Roofing specialises in terracotta tile roof restoration and can ensure your roof gets the attention it needs to keep your home safe and strong for years to come.

Does Your Terracotta Roof Need A Restoration?

Terracotta roofs offer tremendous heat insulation which saves you money on home temperature systems like heating and cooling. This makes them a popular choice for Brisbane homes. They also provide considerable sound insulation to block out the sounds of traffic and city sounds, supporting a peaceful household. Terracotta tile roofs are low maintenance but to ensure your roof lasts as long as possible – upwards of 50 years if properly cared for – you should consider having it assessed for a roof restoration.

Our team of terracotta roof specialists will inspect your roof for:

Our Roof Restoration Process For Terracotta Roofs

If you have noticed any of the issues listed above in your roof, we recommend contacting our friendly team straight away to organise an inspection, before these problems worsen and cause your home – or your wallet – further damage. A terracotta tile roof that has been neglected is much less likely to be covered by insurance providers, should any damages occur due to severe storms or fallen trees. If your roof is left to deteriorate, it may get to a point where a full roof replacement is required, which comes with a bigger price tag than a standard roof restoration.

To restore your roof to its best condition and ensure it is covered by insurance, our team provides a professional restoration service involving:

  1. Thorough roof examination by one of our expert inspectors who will assess the condition and structural security of your roof to provide an accurate and personalised quote
  2. We perform specialised terracotta tile roof cleaning using a Whirlaway at a minimum of 4000 psi to remove all dirt, grime, and other contaminants
  3. Mould kill is applied to ensure any embedded mould, lichen, or moss is destroyed. This also protects against any future mould growth
  4. Repairs and or replacement of any broken tiles, re-pointing of ridge caps, and insertion of weep holes, and valley clipping and sealing where required
  5. A thick coat of Roof Protect, which is specially designed for terracotta roofing, leaving a beautiful, strong, and long lasting finish

Terracotta Roof Restoration FAQ

What Is The Difference Between A Terracotta Roof And A Tile Roof?

Tile roofing is typically made from either clay (terracotta) or concrete. Terracotta roofs are:

  • More traditional
  • Lightweight
  • The longest lasting roofing material – commonly over 100 years
  • Higher in price than concrete, but extremely high quality

Do Terracotta Roofs Come In Any Other Colours?

Yes! Terracotta roofs aren’t always orange. We can paint your terracotta tiles a number of different colours including dark and light options to suit your Brisbane home.

Do Terracotta Roof Tiles Fade?

Traditional terracotta tiles do not fade as the clay is kiln-fired at 1100 degrees celsius, which bakes in the colour glaze.

How Much Do Terracotta Roofs Cost?

On average, terracotta tile roofs cost around $80-110 per square metre. However, this is subject to change depending on the requirements of your roof. Talk to our team to get an obligation free quote today!

How Long Does A Terracotta Roof Typically Last?

Terracotta tiles are the longest lasting roofing material, which can easily last for upwards of 100 years when cared for correctly. Regular roof inspections and maintenance including high pressure cleaning and the odd repairs can greatly benefit your terracotta tile roof, extending its lifespan and preventing unnecessary replacement/restoration costs. If your roof is in need of some TLC, a terracotta roof restoration is a more affordable option than a full replacement. Contact Right Roofing to find out how our team of professionals can help your terracotta roof.

Can Eroded Terracotta Tiles Be Restored?

The simple answer is yes, but the longer answer is – it depends. The current state of the tile will play a part in how well it can be restored, but if the tile is in mostly good condition – a terracotta tile can be restored and a new protective coating applied to extend the life of your roof tile. Chances are however, if one tile is in poor shape, others around it may also be suffering. It is always a good idea to have a professional inspect your roof and confirm if your terracotta tiles can be restored.

Can You Paint Terracotta Tiles?

It is possible, but isn’t always recommended. When terracotta tiles are being manufactured, a special glaze is applied. When placed in the kiln and fired, the glaze melts and bonds to the tile – creating a hard, smooth surface that protects the tile. This glaze can be clear (to show the natural colour of the terracotta tile) or a colour of your choosing. Painting over the tile without the right paint and/or roof coatings can cause this glaze to delaminate, removing the protective layer on your tiles. Terracotta tiles are naturally porous, so an unglazed tile is much more susceptible to water damage, moss and algae.

If you are looking to have your terracotta roof painted, always have an experienced professional complete this work for you. A qualified roofing expert has the knowledge and equipment to paint your terracotta tile roof without the possibility of damage to the tiles or their glazing/coatings.
