White Out: Introducing the Ghost White roof tile from La Escandella

An elegant, sophisticated roofing alternative, white roof tiles will ensure your home is both contemporarily stylish and environmentally friendly.

Paying homage to the white sands that line our shores, the bark of the Ghost Gum tree, and the chalk tones of Australian sandstone, Bristile Roofing’s La Escandella Ghost White range echoes Australia’s natural landscape, seamlessly integrating into any design style. Simultaneously contemporary and timeless, bright, beautiful and enduring, the La Escandella Roof Tile is naturally strong and effortlessly laid-back. Australia’s love-affair for minimalistic design isn’t going anywhere. This penchant for pared-back design has found its way to the home’s exterior, and up to the roof.

Kim Chadwick, Australian Trend Forecast Director believes that white tiles will be an immensely popular design choice, claiming, “there’s a real trend in contemporary housing for the same colour to be used throughout, and white on white is very strong,” she says. “A monochromatic palette allows the architectural elements of a house to speak for themselves”. However, she also recommends “a white roof on a dark grey façade works well if balanced with light stone paving, retaining walls and landscaping features”.

White roof tiles can be the ideal feature for any style of home, whether it be coastal, contemporary or traditional. Hamptons-style homes – luxurious, symmetrical, two-storey residences influenced by the coast – are often light in colour and work well with La Escandella tiles. “In that scenario, the white roof tile does very well,” says Kim.

La Escandella’s Ghost White Tile is available in two profiles: Planum and Innova. The former is a minimalist and contemporary style- flat, sleek and elegant. The Planum Tile is easy and fast to install, subsequently minimising installation time and cost. The weatherproof design ensures the roof tile is extremely durable and hardwearing, offering many years of protection and aesthetic appeal. The second profile, the Innova Ghost White model, is a modernised, ridged tile, featuring a textured finish, designed to suit a range of styles.

Both tiles are incredibly timeless, with a sleek profile and muted colour palette, the La Escandella range is not only guaranteed to last for 100 years, but is also sleek enough to ensure it remains timelessly stylish.

As well as aesthetic appeal and functionality, the tiles have eco-credentials too. With energy bills going up and temperatures set to rise, Australians are eager to embrace natural ways to keep their homes at a comfortable temperature. Terracotta roofing is the way of the future, with the ability to reflect heat, requiring less cooling inside the home. La Escandella’s Ghost White in particular has a lower thermal mass than a darker tile, improving solar reflectivity. An added bonus, Terracotta roof tiles are effective at reducing noise within the home. Compared with other roofing materials such as metal, tiled roofing reduces noise by approx. 25 decibels, ensuring your home is your own peaceful sanctuary from the outside world.
