Some roofing tiles are made from concrete and are similar to the tile and stone roofing systems in many ways. Like clay tiles roofing, concrete roofs provide many of the same benefits including resisting damage from fire, wind, hail, and heat. Concrete roof tiles are made from mixing portland cement, sand, water and then placed in a mold to get the desired shape and thickness. You can imagine that during that process many shapes and styles as well as colors can be created through this process giving you a wide variety of concrete roofing looks and options to choose from. The biggest drawback to concrete is the weight of the tiles themselves. Concrete is very heavy and your roof substructure must be specially designed to support it. If you are considering clay tiles versus concrete, clay tiles will likely last longer.
