Pitch roofs are a common feature for independent houses, especially in hill stations and coastal areas owning various functional attributes as well as aesthetic standpoints. To suit the attributes, the tiles used for pitched roofs must be strong, robust and flexible. In places where there are heavy rainfalls, like Kerala (where last year there was 42% more rainfall recorded than the previous years), erratic weather conditions make it necessary for roof tiles to have inbuilt defense mechanisms against such harsh conditions.
Monnanda Appaiah, MD, Wienerberger India, adds, “A building’s roof is the first real line of defense against the heat and rain. In extremely hot climatic conditions, a good roof should be able to release – not store or absorb – the sun’s rays. Cooling is one of the major concerns in building tropical houses along with rain waterproofing.” Wienerberger’s Koramic & Tondach tile solutions are genuine terracotta tiles that come in a wide range of profiles, finishes, and colours that give the architect enough design flexibility.
The solution also offers the best protection for houses against weather and wet conditions. They are durable, energy-efficient and have a colour that does not fade over time. They have covered over 200,000 sq m of roofs in South India alone. On average, the company’s clay roof solution covers 290,000+ roofs worldwide in a year and is a consistent leader in roof tile manufacturing in Europe for nearly two centuries.
