From Terracotta to Tractile

Jo needed to replace her old terracotta tiles. She also wanted solar, yet delivered in a more elegant way than panels.
Tractile Roof in Sylvania NSW

Jo had a problem. Her magnificent house, nestled in the coastal community of Sydney’s Sutherland Shire, was needing a solar power solution. However, her terracotta tiles were too brittle and too old to install solar panels.

A new roof was ultimately required, but adding solar panels to a new roof on her architect designed home in the premium suburb of Sylvania was not too desirable.

It was then that Jo discovered Tractile.

Located on the coast, it was important that the roof be resistant to the strong winds whistling off Botany bay and also be non-corrosive. This combined with adding street appeal to her home with a modern roofing material meant that Tractile ticked all the boxes.

I love the seamless look, you can hardly tell we have solar.

After going though a sizing estimate with the Tractile team, the right amount of Tractile patented roofing products was ordered and Tractile’s national roofing installer, Combined Roofing removed the terracotta roof tiles and replaced this with Tractile in just a few days.

“I just loved the process from beginning to end. Driving up to my home is wonderful. The roof makes it feel so fresh. I couldn’t be happier.

The Tractile patented hook & batten system meant that the roof was a breeze to install leaving Jo with the best looking roof in the street and the ability to generate enough power for her home to live energy neutral.

We’ll leave the final word to the Roof Installer from Combined Roofing.
