LUTUM Roof Tiles
Complete your home with quality street appeal
As the single largest surface area, your roof not only protects but also provides an immediate ‘street-appeal.’ LUTUM roof tiles provide a high-quality look and finish to your home.
Whether you are building a new home or renovating an existing pitched roof, LUTUM’s range of unique designs and colour profiles gives a choice to individualise and complement your entire home.
Choose from LUTUM’s attractive Concrete or exceptional and long-lasting Terracotta and Designer Ceramic roof tiles. LUTUM Concrete roof tiles are made from sand and cement that gets stronger with age. LUTUM Terracotta and Designer Ceramic roof tiles are made from natural Australian clay resulting in a strong, yet lightweight roofing material, of exceptional quality and colour that never fades.
LUTUM roof tiles have been manufactured to the highest Australian standards for over 50 years, which is why we confidently provide a customer guarantee of 20 years on all LUTUM Concrete roof tiles, 50 years on LUTUM Terracotta roof tiles and 60 years on LUTUM Designer Ceramic roof tiles.
To ensure quality standards, LUTUM maintains a fully staffed Quality Control Laboratory where LUTUM roof tiles are tested for weight and dimensional stability, transverse strength, water absorption, permeability and colour consistency.
Finishing your home’s appearance with LUTUM roof tiles provides a great investment that will add value to your home for its entire life.
Enduring performance to protect you and your family
Australian made LUTUM roof tiles are designed to perform and protect you against our harsh weather conditions for its entire life.
Compared to other roofing, a LUTUM pitched roof is super quiet. The density of LUTUM roof tiles helps reduce external sounds such as aircraft and road noise and particularly rain, hail and wind. In fact, LUTUM roof tiles have potential sound reduction twice that of steel roofing.
The weight of a LUTUM pitched roof reduces the impact of uplift pressures when compared to lighter materials such as steel roofing which can often lift in severe winds.
LUTUM roof tiles are salt-safe and frost-resistant, making them suitable for all locations, including adjacent to our Australian marine coastline (conditions that can prove damaging to steel roofing).
LUTUM roof tiles are made from non-combustible materials and can be safely used in bushfire prone areas. Due to their non-toxicity, they are also safe for the collection of rainwater.
Importantly a LUTUM pitched roof also helps to recycle the air within your home which reduces harmful condensation. Once a LUTUM pitched roof is installed, it is low maintenance as tiles never rust or corrode. If your roof is ever damaged then individual tiles can be easily replaced.
A LUTUM pitched roof provides confidence and peace of mind for long-lasting performance and protection of you and your family.
A LUTUM pitched roof is cool and sustainable
LUTUM roof tiles are sustainable now and into the future, having a lower total embodied energy compared to other roofing materials.
The thermal mass of a LUTUM pitched roof when used with sarking, solar design principles and wind-driven ventilation (‘whirly birds’) helps keep your home cooler in summer and warmer in winter, reducing your need for air-conditioning and heating, along with your power costs and your environmental footprint.
A LUTUM pitched roof also helps reduce the urban heat island effect of suburban landscapes by better radiating heat (thermal emittance) while the use of lighter colour tiles can also help to reflect the sun (solar reflectance).
Sourced from local natural raw materials, their manufacturing requires little processing and is highly efficient with minimal onsite wastage helping to reduce the impact of transportation emissions and energy use. At the end of their life, LUTUM tiles can be 100% recycled.
The thermal performance of your roof is a critical factor for the well-being of our planet and the comfort of your household. An illustration below explains basic energy-efficiency design principles that allow a LUTUM pitched roof to outperform other roofing options.
LUTUM ‘cool’ tiled roofs substantially minimise the amount of heat transformed from the absorbed solar energy.
Unlike steel, LUTUM roof tiles stay cooler as they have superior thermal emittance properties that allow more solar energy to escape before heating up your home and the atmosphere.
Once installed, a well-maintained LUTUM pitched roof can last for a lifetime, so you are taking a responsible decision that is helping you protect and sustain our environment.
