What is Concrete Tile?
Concrete roofing tile was first introduced in the 1840s by a German cement manufacturer who developed a machine to press out the tiles. The technique became popular, and you will still encounter some of those concrete tile roofs as you travel through Europe.
Today, concrete tile is made of a mixture of sand, portland cement, water and iron oxide color pigments, and the combination varies between manufacturers. The mixture is extruded under heat and high pressure to form nearly any shape and is then sealed.
Concrete tile roofs offer you a wide variety of colors to choose from: terra cottas, ocean blues, refreshing greens and earth tones. There are many available textures and styles, from the traditional S-shaped style of clay tile to rectangular shapes that mimic slate and shakes.
This high-density tile is among the most durable of roofing materials and can withstand abuse from Florida’s saltwater, wind, sun and heat.
