Monier: Changing India’s Architectural Roofscape

Ashok Ninan, MD, Monier Roofing (India)


Ashok Ninan, MD, Monier Roofing (India), shares information on the new Perspective roof tile from Monier, and why roof tiles are recommended for India’s geographical terrain.

What are the features of Monier’s latest product – the Perspective Roof?

Monier has launched its new roof tile profile in India named Perspective. It has an ultra-modern geometrical shape that is dimensionally consistent and lends a sleek look to roofs. This concrete roof tile has superior strength, a smooth finish, and low water absorption that delays moss and fungi formation. It is being manufactured in Bangalore and is available in many stylish colours.

Regions and climates for which Monier tiles are recommended in India?

The New Perspective Roof Tile From Monier Elabana
Our tiles are the result of Monier’s worldwide research and development expertise. The tiles were introduced in India after studying the country’s geographical terrain and their suitability to Indian climatic conditions such as heavy rain, snowfall, extreme summers, and humidity across different regions. Pitched roofs are suitable for every region of India as they give multiple benefits of water tightness, heat reduction, etc.

What are their maintenance requirements?

Our roofing system needs very little maintenance, but it is advised to check the following areas before the onset of monsoons:
  • At valleys, in gutters and downpipes, there should be no dust or leaves accumulated, so remove all water stopping items.
  • In case mortar was used on the roof, check that no mortar has cracked and replace the damaged areas with a specific treatment.
  • There should not be any broken tiles due to falling coconut if the building is below coconut trees, or by a cricket ball, etc.
Monier tiles under normal climatic conditions are very durable and give a very long life. We have many roofers around India, trained by us, who can handle any repair work, if required.
