Devonport’s Terracotta & Concrete Roof Tile Experts

Our team at RDW Roofing works exclusively on residential terracotta and concrete tiling projects, bringing a host of advantages to homeowners in Devonport. 

Terracotta tiles are crafted from natural clay and kiln-fired at high temperatures, and are chosen for their aesthetic appeal, instantly adding warmth and character to any home. Beyond their visual appeal, these tiles stand out for their robustness, weather resistance, and remarkable thermal insulation properties. 

Alternatively, concrete tiles are made from a mixture of cement, sand, and water, known for their adaptability and strength. Available in an array of shapes, sizes, and hues, they fit a wide variety of architectural designs. Concrete tiles are an economical and low-maintenance choice while still preserving durability and lastability.

We work hard to provide Devonport residents with top-tier roofing solutions that boost their homes’ beauty, energy efficiency, and security. We’re proud to be the trusted Tasmanian distributor of Monier products (Australia’s leader for residential concrete and terracotta roof tile production). Monier is known for its commitment to quality and innovation, values that align with our own commitment to offering long-lasting, aesthetically pleasing, and effective roofing options to our customers.

An Additional Consideration

Homeowners in Devonport should be mindful of several factors when maintaining their roofs, due to the town’s unique coastal climate. The close proximity to the ocean means homes are often exposed to salt-laden air, which can accelerate deterioration of certain roofing elements. This salty air can quicken the moisture absorption of materials, leading to an increased risk of rust in metal parts like flashings and gutters. Additionally, the salt can erode paint and weaken sealants, undermining both the functional and aesthetic integrity of your roof. To combat these effects, it’s important to organise regular roof inspections and carry out repairs swiftly to mitigate any salt-induced corrosion or damage.

Moreover, being close to the sea, Devonport is also susceptible to increased wind exposure, especially during the colder months. These winds can potentially displace or harm tiles and other roofing components, increasing the chance of leaks and further complications. It’s important for homeowners in Devonport to maintain their roofs diligently, ensuring any loose or compromised elements are quickly addressed through repair or replacement to maintain the roof’s condition and protect your home.

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.


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.


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.


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.

thousands of happy customers

“Our tired roof has a new lease of life plus no leaks and also no uninvited possums and birds nests. From the start there was great communication from Ryan and a comprehensive quote. 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.”

Marilyn B., Homeowner

“Team were extremely professional. Communication was excellent. They transformed my ugly, eyesore of a rusty roof into a thing of beauty. I can’t recommend them highly enough.”

Kevin S.

“RDW Roofing and Ryan responded brilliantly to our need to have an old 1930 tile roof repaired and restored. We chose to have the roof cleaned, repaired and re-pointed, and the results speak for themselves. Great communication, arrived on time, professional service […] and tidied up after themselves. Honest quote, came in at less than estimated. Would recommend to all.”
