Sealing Roofs To Stop Leaks
Concrete and terracotta tile roofs are always popular among home owners because, when they’re look after, they look great and are extremely long lasting.
It’s no coincidence that archaeologists are often digging up terracotta pots from past civilisations – clay/terracotta tile is one of the oldest and most durable building materials.
If you buy an older, heritage-style home, you may have terracotta roof tiles, as they can last between 50 and 100 years. Concrete tiles can also last up to 50 years if they’re well maintained.
Terracotta and concrete roofs are generally resistant to fire, rot and insects. Additionally, they can usually handle extreme temperatures and salt air. With all the weather extremes we face in Australia, you can see why this type of roofing is very popular.
However, you do need to take care of terracotta and concrete tiles so they can continue to keep your roof watertight and stop leaks occurring.
For example, the underlying material of concrete tiles needs replacing every 8–20 years. You also need to waterproof and repair any dislodged tiles, loose pointing, cracks or other moisture problems as soon as they pop up to prevent further damage and maintain the quality of your roof.
Why Moisture Problems Occur In Roof Tiles
Terracotta tiles tend to be unglazed and porous. Little pores in the tile collect moisture when it rains, which provides great natural cooling (which is why they use these tiles in the Mediterranean).
However, this benefit can also create problems if the tile remains uncoated or waterproofed. They absorb water over time, which allows algae, mildew and moss to grow. This growth can prevent the tiles working as they should and water can also seep in under the tiles.
If you’ve had a split system air conditioner installation, applying the waterproofing membrane around and over the entry points and any attachment points, will keep moisture penetration at bay in the future.
So it’s essential to seal your roof tiles, especially if you live in a particularly humid region or environmentally harsh climate.
If you see any sign of water damage, cracked tiles, algae and mildew growth or other problems, you need to get the problem fixed quickly. If a problem in the roof goes untreated for a long period, it can threaten the integrity of the building’s structure.

Benefits Of Waterproofing With Polyurea
We strongly recommend using Polyurea to waterproof a concrete or terracotta tiled roof because it has so many advantages over other products.
The high-quality membrane can be applied in different thicknesses – so it will never rip. Our Pro WaterProofing roof waterproofing service stays airtight and watertight without cracking, peeling or splitting with our long lasting 60 year guarantee.
A major benefit of Polyurea is the way it expands, contracts and moves where necessary – though it can also be rigid if required. This flexibility makes it highly resistant to both low and high temperatures (as it remains flexible even in below-zero temperatures), and allows it to reduce noise and vibration.
Polyurea is also highly resistant to abrasion and high impact, like wind and hail, and acts as an excellent insulator if electrical isolation is needed.
In our work, we’ve found this product to be highly effective across a wide range of applications. Polyurea will never damage your concrete or terracotta tiles and, over time, will actually reduce your roof maintenance and repair costs.
