Before After
If you own an Adelaide home clad with older Terracotta roof tiles then its likely you may need to consider a roof replacement at some point. Oz-Roof are experts in replacing Terracotta Tiled Roofs with Insulated Colourbond roofing. We have done hundreds conversion of this kind all over Adelaide. If your Terracotta tiled roof is giving you constant problems then it’s a good idea to stop wasting good money on a roof that has little remaining serviceable life and invest in what can be a massive transformation for an older home by way of a Terracotta Roof Replacement.


A little know fact is that Terracotta roofs can not be painted or coated. The official advice from the best roof coating manufacturer in Australia, being Dulux is that no warranty of any kind will apply to a coated or painted Terracotta roof. For this reason the colour of appearance of a Terracotta roof cant be changed. The only form of restoration possible for a Terracotta tiled roof in high pressure cleaning to remove all the moss and lichen from the tile face and re-pointing of all the cap tiles. Of course we still don’t recommend any client invest it Terracotta tiled roof restoration if the roof is older or has started fretting and crumbling.

While Terracotta has been used with great success as a roofing material in Europe for hundreds of years, its success in Australia and especially Adelaide is a different storey. A typical Terracotta tiled roof in Adelaide tends to start fretting and crumbling away at some point in time usually when the roof is somewhere between 30 and 60 years old. These symptoms appear earlier and the tiles degrade faster in salty and humid air nearer to the ocean. In many cases we have found significant fretting on a Terracotta tiled roof as young as 30 years when located less than a few kilometres to the ocean.

We are a locally owned and operated roofing business servicing the local area. When you make a phone call to us it won’t go through to a national call centre. The person that inspects your roof will issue the quote and then manage the job to completion.

No Money down!

We have a no money upfront policy. While other companies charge a hefty deposit and often ask for a percentage of the job upfront to lock you in, we don’t play any of those games. We just ask for a $100 deposit and don’t ask for a cent more until your Roof replacement is fully complete and you are 100% happy with your new roof. No risk, No pressure. No BS.

Specialists in roofing

We just do roof replacements and do it really well. We won’t try to sell you Roller shutters or Solar panels or steak knives or pizzas! Roofing is what we know and love and the only thing we do. Don’t go with a company that sells everything under the sun, they can’t possibly take their roofing as seriously as we do.

Backing of the big name manufacturers!

We might be a small company but through a proven history of quality work, we have the backing of some of the big name suppliers in the Roofing Industry. We use top quality roof sheeting from Blue Scope Colourbond and Revolution Roofing on all our roof replacement projects. These products are the best that money can buy and have the longest and strongest warranties to back them up.

Tradesmen not salesmen

The person that comes to your house is a tradesman of many years experience that really knows roofing. We are not a company that sends you a high pressure sales person with no real industry experience who will probably be selling Indoor blinds at his next appointment. We don’t play sales games either. We generally give you a fixed price quote verbally at our roof inspection and then follow it up with a formal quote by email. No “for a limited time only” No, “If you sign up today we will give you a fake discount” No, “Free plasma TV for this week only” We just give up front discussion and quote with no games.

Five reasons why:


When re-roofing, we highly recommend lining the new roof with an Insulation blanket. It’s a great way of increasing the energy efficiency of old homes that were built prior to the 6 star energy rating system. With roof insulation blanket the thermal and acoustic performance of a roof system can be dramatically improved.
