Terracotta Roof Tiles

The very word terracotta is the most earthly product and has a lot of class, aesthetics and peace about itself. Clay when fired takes the name of Terracotta and this very word depicts age, terracotta is the first used product , its called the oldest and yet most ethnic tool of home making.

Centuries ago clay was the oldest basic material widely used and is still widely used but with modern technologies to shape and make better constructions. Terracotta products help in better insulation of both heat and cold, If shaped and fired well  they last forever and it is a fact seen from age old excavations where with the help of terracotta products found we can depict history, "when and how and who lived that time".

Modern day living has become so fast and so stressful that it is a established fact and comparison has been made between  those living in terracotta made homes who have been seen to be more relaxed and at ease than those in very modern  construction materials. Terracotta brings you closer to earth and is seen as a stress reliever. It is now a matter of luxury to have terracotta cover on home on Roof tops in the form of good Terracotta roof tiles. Basically we live under the sun and the heat from the sun from morning to evening is working on the rooftops, well made terracotta roof tiles are a good barrier for this heat because of the fact that terracotta roof tiles are bad conductors of heat thus resulting in being good insulating materials. The thermal lag experienced during this day long heat attack from all angles is a plus point in terracotta roof tiles on the roof tops and is an everyday phenomena and we are experiencing increase in temperatures every year and what better than have a permanent and natural heat barrier over the very homes that we live in. All the heat barred from entering the top of the homes is energy saved and with new technologies the Terracotta Roof Tiles are now made in such a way that their interlocking is excellent and results in a tight fit andn overlappings plus the default installation procedures of these modern terracotta roof tiles result in more energy saving than contemporary low fired roof tiles. Energy saving is the need of the hour and the sooner we reckon to this the better for our planet.
