Concrete Roof Tile
Concrete roof tiles can be made in a wide variety of colors and patterns. They are also more durable than terracotta tiles and require less maintenance than other roof materials. They can be shaped to mimic other roofing styles, like shingles and slate. This makes them a great option for any home. Here are some things you should know before you buy a concrete roof tile.
Concrete roof tiles come in three basic profiles: mission S-tiles, Spanish S-tiles, and flat tiles. Mission S-tiles, also known as Spanish S-tiles, are low-profile double-S shapes. Flat tiles, on the other hand, are shaped to resemble slates and wood shakes. The job that we’ve seen in the pictures uses 17-inch Spanish S-tiles, which lock together along the edges and form a lap joint.
Unlike clay tiles, concrete roof tiles can be manufactured in a variety of colors and shapes. However, they are less resistant to mildew and algae. They also absorb double the amount of water than clay tiles, making them an unwise choice if your climate experiences heavy rainfall.
