What We Offer

New Roof Tiling

Building a new home or undertaking a renovation? Choosing the right roof tiles (and roofing professionals) can enhance your home’s appearance and value.

Offering a range of solutions for new homes and the capacity to offer any tile from the Monier range, we provide homeowners with an unmatched array of options. Working with our roof tilers ensures your new roof is visually appealing, structurally sound, and weather-resistant.

Old Tile Replacement

Degraded and damaged tiles not only detract from your home’s appearance and increase your energy bills but can also lead to leaks and structural damage.

Our old tile replacement service focuses on carefully removing worn-out tiles and replacing them with new, durable tiles from the Monier range. We work hard to ensure every new tile placed on your roof is closely matched (or identical) to your home’s current tiles to ensure a consistent and aesthetically pleasing finish.

Roof Tile Repair and Maintenance

Regular repair and maintenance are crucial to extending the longevity of your roof. We understand the challenges of roof wear and tear, so we offer a thorough inspection process before every roof-tiling project we complete.

RDW Roofing’s repair and maintenance services include the replacement of broken tiles or cracked tiles, corroded flashing replacement, valley replacement, and more. With every roof tiling project we complete, we aim to ensure your roof remains in optimal condition, prepared to withstand the elements.

Tile Selection Consultation

Choosing the right tiles is an important step during any re-roofing project and ensures your roof’s durability, efficiency, and aesthetic appeal. That’s why RDW Roofing offers a comprehensive tile selection consultation, guiding you through the premium range of Monier tiles.

Monier, a leading name in the roofing industry, has been developing Australia’s best roof tiles for over 100 years. Their roof tiles, including concrete and terracotta options, are designed to withstand extreme weather conditions while never losing colour.

Our roof tiling consultation service will help you make a choice that’s perfectly aligned with your home’s aesthetic and functional needs, ensuring a result that looks amazing and lasts a lifetime.

Roof Tile Cleaning

Over time, roof tiles can accumulate dirt, moss, and lichen, affecting their appearance. If left unaddressed, this will also decrease the longevity of your roof, accelerating cracks in your tiles and cement and ultimately increasing the chance of leaks.

Our roof tile cleaning service involves thoroughly removing built-up grime dirt with an industry-standard pressure washer to restore your roof’s aesthetic appeal and prevent potential damage caused by build-up. It’s important to note that before we start the cleaning process, our team of expert roof tilers will also complete any routine maintenance and repairs to ensure the best possible long-term results.

Roof Tile Painting

A fresh coat of paint is one of the most cost-effective ways to enhance your roof’s aesthetic look and feel. As Dulux-accredited applicators, we specialise in roof tile painting, using only the highest quality paint on the market. Dulux paints are renowned for their durability and long-lasting colour, providing your roof with an eye-catching, new look that withstands the test of time (and the elements).

Our skilled team carefully prepares each roof, ensuring the surface is clean and ready for painting. We then apply Dulux paint in your chosen colour, transforming your roof with a smooth, uniform finish, drastically improving the look and feel of your home. With RDW Roofing, you can be confident that your roof painting project is in the hands of accredited professionals, delivering a quality finish that lasts.

Monier has established itself as Australia’s premier roof tiles supplier, offering over a century of experience protecting Australian homes from the elements.

Your home’s tiles play a crucial role in enhancing your home’s aesthetic appeal, which is why our team of Roof Tilers will settle for nothing less.

Why Our Roof Tilers Only Work With Monier

Our team of roof tilers at RDW chooses to work exclusively with Monier because of their unmatched quality and range of options. Monier’s tiles are known for their durability, designed to endure Australia’s unique climate conditions. They offer an extensive selection, including terracotta and concrete roof tiles, ensuring versatility for various styles of homes.

Being Tasmania’s distributor of Monier tiles enables us to provide visually appealing, long-lasting, and reliable roofing solutions. Here are a few key reasons why our Roof Tilers only work with Monier.

Wide Selection Range of Tiles

Monier offers a huge selection of different tile styles (and even more colours). They offer options tailored to various architectural styles, ensuring every homeowner can find the perfect fit for their home.

Their range includes terracotta and concrete, each designed to look incredible and last a lifetime. Monier’s range gives our roof tilers the tools they need to deliver exceptional results for your home every time; their extensive selection allows for custom roofing solutions that align with your specific needs.

Durability

Durability is a hallmark of Monier tiles. Designed to withstand Australia’s unique and often harsh weather conditions, these tiles are a reliable choice for roof tilers. They provide long-term protection against elements like intense sun, heavy rain, hail damage, and strong winds, ensuring your roof remains secure and intact over the years.

Monier’s concrete tiles were even subjected to tough tests by James Cook University. Ice balls were thrown at the surface of the tiles at a simulated velocity to the wind; the tiles absorbed the impact, shattering the hailstones on contact.

Aesthetics

Monier’s broad tile range allows our team to enhance the visual appeal of any home, creating eye-catching roofscapes that complement and elevate your home.

The aesthetic flexibility offered by Monier tiles makes them a popular choice for both contemporary and traditional homes. They come in a range of different styles, including traditional semi-cylinder barrel-style tiles, modern flat tiles, and more.

Longevity

Longevity is a key consideration for any roof tiler. RDW’s goal is to minimise maintenance costs for our clients as much as possible, and Monier tiles stand apart from the competition.

Monier tiles come with a robust 50-year structural performance guarantee, assuring they won’t warp, become porous, corrode, or be adversely affected by salt or frost conditions. Monier Terracotta roof tiles are also backed by a 50-year colour guarantee, ensuring long-lasting hue retention and aesthetic appeal.

Monier’s high-quality materials and strict manufacturing processes ensure that these tiles look good and last for decades. By using Monier, you can reduce the need for frequent replacements and have peace of mind.

Noise Reduction

While many roofing materials offer some level of noise reduction, Monier’s roof tiles’ density significantly minimises external noise such as traffic, aircrafts, and rain. Tiled roofs are notably effective in sound dampening, offering a noise reduction rating of around 30 decibels (considerably higher than many common roofing alternatives).

Additionally, roof tiles are structurally stable and do not produce noise in response to temperature changes, unlike other materials that may creak or groan. This makes them an excellent choice for a quieter home environment.

Australian-Made

Using Monier also means supporting local businesses; Monier tiles are proudly Australian-made, specifically built and designed to withstand the harsh Aussie climate. This local production ensures that our roof tilers are working with materials that are not only of high quality but also suitable for the specific environmental conditions of Tasmania.

Make An Informed Decision for Your Roof
UV Protection

With high-quality tiles, a fresh new roof offers excellent reflective properties to prevent UV light from penetrating your home, keeping you comfortable and temperate.

Physical Protection

Your tiles are a physical barrier for falling trees, hail, or pests such as rats, possums, and birds from nesting in your attic. An uncompromised roof also protects your insulation.

Pollutant Barrier

Your roof is an essential barrier to the external environment, working in tangent with your ventilation to prevent pollutants and allergens from entering your living space.

Value

With many residential building inspections failing on the roof, a new roof adds significant value to your home.

Foot Traffic

An immediate consideration is that foot traffic, including gutter cleaning, solar installations, etc., can cause roof tile cracks. A qualified roofer can immediately replace cracked tiles before any further damage starts.

Ageing

Within as soon as ten years, the pointing of your roof can start showing signs of cracking (further worsened by foot traffic). A quick pointing touch-up is a simple way to prevent further damage.

Accumulated Grime

Within ten years, the first signs of moss and lichen will start to show (particularly in moist environments). A periodic powerwash is the best way to keep your roof looking fresh.

Dislodged End Cap

Usually one of the first things to go, your ridge cap end tile can start to feel the weight of gravity and begin to slide. This is an easy fix at this stage.

Cracked Pointing

More extensively cracked and peeling ridge pointing will start to show, exposing the mortar under your hip tiles (ridge caps). Should you address the issue soon enough, a qualified roofer could save the bedding with a cost-effective pointing touch-up.

Dislodged Flashings

Your roof’s flashings can become dislodged over time and may need replacement. A simple installation of a lead-free, adhesive flashing is a cost-effective way to prevent further damage.

Prevention

At a minimum, we recommend a roofing inspection of your roof to have any routine maintenance complete and ensure your roof is in functional condition.

Accumulated Grime

Moss and lichen will continue to grow, making your roof look lacklustre and contributing to cracking of your pointing. A simple roof clean by an expert is a great way to nip this issue in the bud.

Dislodged Shell Cap

If your end ridge tile is not addressed soon, it can continue to slide and allow the tiles it sits on to begin to slide into your gutter.

Loose Ridge Caps

Ridge caps are likely loose at this point. When this occurs, complete cleaning and replacing bedding cement is required to ensure the ridges are refastened and stay in place.

Degraded Pointing

If left unattended, the pointing of your ridge caps (at a bare minimum) needs replacing to keep your ridge caps secure.

Faded Colour

With age, all roofs will lose their colour/glaze. Restoring this is for cosmetic purposes, but when all maintenance is completed, followed by re-sealing and painting, it will add a new lease of life to an old, bland roof.

Dislodged End Cap

By this stage, your end cap could have continued to slide off, leaving no weight on its under tiles. This not only looks terrible but also allows water ingress.

Replacement Required

At this point, your roof may be beyond repair. Moss could have penetrated under your tiles, unattended mechanical stress could leave your tiles riddled with cracks, and your ridge caps likely need complete repair. Unfortunately, complete reroofing may be the only solution.

Use our interactive tool to explore the long-term benefits of quality roofing:

Leak Protection

The roof tiles are designed to allow rain to run freely off your roof and into your gutter to prevent pooling on your roof’s surface.

Controlled Runoff

Your roof’s valleys act as a securely sealed, free-flowing channel to allow stormwater to run seamlessly into your gutters.

Leak Protection

The ridges of your roof are fastened with bedding cement and sealed with pointing mortar to prevent water ingress.

Leak Protection

Flashings are small pieces of metal placed around your roof’s joints to act as a tight and secure waterproofing barrier.

Weather Damage

Strong winds caused by storms can dislodge valley tiles. Having an expert roofer clip these back into place is an easy and cost-effective way to avoid further damage.

Accumulated Debris

Within ten years, debris and organic matter will start to fill in your gutter, increasing the chances of rust and water overflow. A simple, quick emptying of your gutter is the best way to avoid any issues.

Water Ingress

Any cracked and unattended pointing will start to make your roof vulnerable to water ingress, with a high chance of leaks beginning to move through your ceiling and into your attic.

Lost Flashings

Flashings aged 20 years are highly sensitive to wind gusts, proving a prime access point for water infiltration.

Dislodged Tiles

At the 20-year mark, multiple roof tiles are likely to become dislodged. Having an expert lock them in place is a simple way to prevent leaks.

Soaked Insulation

At this point, unattended leaks are already soaking your ceiling insulation, making it an excellent breeding ground for mould and rendering the insulation effectively useless.

Mouldy Insulation

If exposed to moisture, your ceiling insulation has heavily degraded and is likely full of mould. Degraded insulation is an excellent breeding ground for mould and could be promptly replaced to keep your indoor space healthy and comfortable.

Water Ingress

Unattended ridge caps with deteriorated pointing and bedding are a leading reason for water ingress and leaks coming through your ceiling.

Interior Damage

Any unattended leaks will show on your ceiling and walls as yellow stains and mould. An expert professionally treating your home for mould and water stains is costly…

Electrical Hazard

Unattended leaks are a significant electrical hazard and could be dripping onto electricals. If exposed to water, this poses a considerable fire risk and likely needs complete replacement.

Attic Damage

An unattended roof will likely allow multiple entry points for water ingress into your ceiling. Wood rot of your trusses could be a significant issue at this point, and the plaster of your ceiling may need complete replacement.

I got regular updates on when the work men would be at my house and what they would be doing each day. Cleaned up the mess very well and the price came in under what was quoted, which was a huge bonus. Would recommend to anyone.”
