Roof options: colorbond, terracotta or concrete tiles?

Roof options: colorbond, terracotta or concrete tiles?

Colorbond is noisier in that you can really hear the rain.....but I don't mind that. It is less likely to be damaged if you want to fit solar panels at a later date.

HY Joist is typically what project builders use. Pryda Longreach is the other one but they are dearer as it uses a lot more wood. Lots of other options.
