About roofing -
the facts

With over 100 years of protecting the people you love from the harsh Australian conditions, Monier knows roofing.  Your roof takes up 30% of the external façade, it significantly contributes to the look of your home so you need to make the right choice for you and your family. 

Genuinely made for the Australian Conditions

Our Concrete, Terracotta and Elemental roof tiles are specifically designed to withstand the harsh Australian conditions and will not:

  • Rust or corrode near salt water
  • Dent in a hail storm
  • Fade faster than alternative roofing products


We genuinely care for the Australian environment and protecting your home.

We were the first to launch an integrated SOLARtile to lower the energy consumption of Australian households leading to lower energy bills.

Concrete and Terracotta tiles have a lower embodied energy which means there is less energy consumed in throughout the manufacturing process of a tiled roof compared to other roofing materials.


In 2016, we underwent a customer immersion journey so we could learn more about you. As a result, we know that you want your roof to last longer and you’re tired of other roofing products fading in colour within two years of install, so we have developed a new colour technology that outperforms any other roofing material on the market.

  • Metal and solvent based roofing products will fade faster than Monier concrete and terracotta tiles.
  • Our new C-LOCTM Colour Lock Technology has an 8x better colour performance than standard Colorbond® Steel
  • Monier's standard concrete tile range has a 4x better colour performance than standard Colorbond® Steel.
  • Monier's Terracotta range has a 50-year lifetime colour performance guarantee. Our Terracotta tiles will not fade.
  • If you want to repaint or respray your roof with a new colour, we have a range of colour coatings that can be applied without losing your warranty.

Resale Value

By choosing concrete or terracotta roof tiles, you can increase the resale value of your home by 3%.


Monier’s concrete tiles can be installed at a 15 degree pitch with sarking and terracotta Nouveau tile can be installed at a 12 degree pitch with sarking which will protect your home from leaking and achieve the modern look.

Monier’s Elemental range of composite lightweight panels can be installed at 10 degrees pitch to achieve that streamlined look and keep you safe from all the elements.

The insurance premiums for Australian households can increase between $100-$600 annually for a low-pitch roof. Low-pitch roofs can gather water and it can be difficult to naturally remove fallen debris which can lead to clogged gutters, downpipes and drains.

The warranty on a metal roof less than 5 degrees pitch is null and void.


Monier is passionate about building roofs that last a lifetime to protect the people we love for generations to come.

  • Metal roofs have been “tested” for 50-years whilst Monier’s roof tiles have been proven for 100 years backed by a 50-year performance guarantee for concrete and terracotta.
  • Monier's Elemental range of composite lightweight has been specifically designed to withstand up to 300kg and retain its strength whilst being 10x lighter than tiles.
  • We continue to innovate around strength and durability to ensure your home is always strong and beautiful
