3. SELECTING THE COLOUR & PROFILE
Profile refers to the roof tiles, shape and design. It is what gives your roof its distinct and unique character. Monier offers a large range of profiles, from sleek modern flat profiles, to the more traditional and classic profiles. After choosing the right profile for your home, your next step is picking the colour of your roof. With over 30 colours available, from earthy warm colours to darker confident colours, Monier has a wide range of options to suit your style.
4. CONSIDER YOUR ROOF FINISH
Like many things, the finish of a product can make all the difference. It’s the same for roofing. Therefore, if it is a more contemporary, minimalist look you are trying to create, consider A-line Ridge. However, if you are after a classical and timeless look the best option for your home would be Lapped Ridge.
5. ROOFING ESSENTIALS
Used together, insulation, ventilation and sarking can significantly reduce the amount of energy required for heating and cooling your home. Insulation products slow the transfer of heat and cold through your ceiling, resulting in the regulation of temperature all year round. Ventilation plays a key role in minimising temperature build up in the roof space by extracting trapped hot air and replacing it with cooler air from outside. Preventing any future concerns around built up of mould. Sarking can only be fitted when you install a new roof, so it’s important to include this step in the build process. Sarking provides an additional layer of protection for your home from the outside elements. Sarking is the perfect option to protect your home when fitting a tiled roof. However, if you prefer fitting a metal roof, sarking will not deliver the same level of protection. Anticon™ roofing blanket provides the best level of protection from the outside elements for a metal roof.
6. FUTURE PROOF YOUR HOME
Australia has more solar radiation energy available per square metre than anywhere in the world. It is important to consider utilising the benefits of the Australian environment through the installation of a Solar System. From adding beauty and value to your property to lowering energy bills, Bradford Monier offers an exclusive InlineSOLAR™ option which is compatible with all Monier roofing tiles.
