which literally means ‘baked earth’ is a type of clay-based ceramic which is used to create roof tilesTiles made from terracotta are a very commonly used roofing material in Nepal and around the world, and they’ve been widely used on roofs for a very long time.

Terracotta is very hardy and has been known to last hundreds of years if it’s treated right. Terracotta is also waterproof and fire resistant, offering good protection from the elements.

The durability of a complete, tiled terracotta roof also comes down to how well it’s constructed and maintained. Regular maintenance will help to prevent infestations of lichen or moss and to ensure that tiles aren’t displaced, which in turn will ensure the ongoing strength of the roof.

Terracotta tiles weigh more than steel roofs, but less than concrete tile roofs. Because the tiles have a tendency to be brittle, care must be taken when things like solar panels and solar hot water systems are installed on terracotta roofs.
