Traditionally, owners and builders have been limited to teracotta or concrete tiles for their premier roofing needs. And, while these materials have various benefits, the biggest drawback they have is that they are heavy. Because traditional roofs do not have “structural joins” between tiles, the traditional tiles needed to be heavy to ensure the integrity of the roof.
With the Tractile’s Interlocking Roof System, this is no longer the case.
Tractile tiles can be cheaper to make and cheaper to install. You can add high-tech insulation at the rear of the tile itself. On the outside, you can explore a new world of colours and finishes.
Leaving aside freak storm conditions, the main battle fought by traditional tiles against the weather is preventing water penetration. In most cases, heavy terracotta or concrete tiles perform this task admirably; except when the wind is blowing and water flowing down the roof is blown up between the tiles.
Traditional tiles need a steep roof angle (pitch or rake) to limit the chance the water has to blow up between the tiles and into the roof. Roofs built utilizing the Tractile Interlocking Building System do not have this problem.
The wind and water challenge limits the shallowness of the roof angle of a traditional roof and can force a home builder or owner to use channels or sarking to limit the ingress of water.
With the Tractile System, stopping water getting in under tiles is no longer a problem. The pitch of a Tractile roof and the shape of the tiles is now almost completely a matter of looks and taste.
And with modern materials and innovation, that’s really the way it should be.
Built to Last
Because Tractile tiles are created in one process, with all materials forming part of a single mould, the longevity of your roof is assured by the integrity of the materials.
While corrosion is an issue for traditional roofing materials, Tractile roofs are made from composite materials that cannot corrode or oxidate.
