ROOFING TILES

The Ideal Roofing for Australian Homes

O

o


Wherever homes are built, those that attract the eye, that possess colour, character and distinctiveness, are roofed with Tiles. For Tiles, as a roof covering, possess a charm impossible to obtain with any other roofing material.

By their wealth of colour, beauty of texture and qualities of hardness and extreme density, WUNDERLICH TERRA-COTTA (Marseilles Pattern) TILES have become known to all home lovers throughout Australia. Available in an amazing range of Glazed and Fire-flashed effects in tones of Mottled Reds and Browns, Buffs, Lemons and Muntz, also Blues and Greens, they afford an almost unending variety of delightful effects and colour harmony. They are renowned for their uniformity of shape and size, and for their exceptional strength.

Since time immemorial, reasons have existed for the supremacy of Terra-Cotta Tiles.

Modern research into the methods of production has added to these reasons, until to-day, WUNDERLICH TERRA-COTTA TILES are virtually a perfect product. Besides their visual appeal, they have met, for many years, the needs of people building for permanence. Exposure to the atmosphere will simply mellow the rich colourings as the years go by. With TERRA-COTTA TILES, the first cost is the last cost.


Terra-Cotta Tiles are the ideal roofing under all Australian climatic conditions. They form an effective insulator against both heat and cold, and are self-ventilating, for between the laps, there are ample openings for the free movement of the air. The hard, burnt qualities of Wunderlich Tiles preclude the possibility of absorption or pollution of rain water, and ensure a maximum flow off the roof.

LOOK FOR THE WUNDERLICH NAME.

c



On every tile we make is our imprint—the Wunderlich name on the underside. This is the sign of good Tiles—of Tiles that are the result of over 20 years' manufacturing experience, that have been produced carefully, ring sound and true, and are renowned for their quality. Our name and reputation as the ORIGINAL AND LARGEST MANUFACTURERS of Tiles in Australia and the Southern Hemisphere go with these Tiles; is it too much to ask that you look for the name and refuse to entertain any substitute?

The illustrations in this Brochure, of homes roofed with Wunderlich Tiles, are actual colour photographic reproductions.
