Profile Look Concrete Tile
Made of sand, water, and cement, concrete tile is quickly becoming a popular choice in roofing. With several companies manufacturing this type of roofing tile, including Eagle Roofing and Monier Life Tile (the oldest concrete tile manufacturer in the US), concrete roof tiles are available to homeowners across the country.
Concrete roof tile is often divided into categories based on their profiles. Depending on their profile look, concrete tile can offer a variety of appearances, depths, and visual appeal.
A flat profile offers a concrete roof tile that is essentially flat and without curves. For the low profile look, concrete tiles have small curves with minimal dimension. For the high profile look, concrete roofing tiles offer large curves with a greater dimension.
No matter the profile look, concrete tile roofing is available in a variety of colors. There are also a variety of textures to chose from, including heavily textured or smooth. They can be made to resemble wood, slate, or clay.
These concrete tiles are available in both lightweight and standard weight options. While lightweight is easier on structures that may be old or worn, and rarely requires extra support, standard weight is sometimes recommended for areas where snow, hail, and other harsh weather elements exist.
Both lightweight and standard weight offer the advantages of fire resistance, as well as resistance to rot, mold, and insects.
One of the biggest advantages of concrete tile is durability. Regardless of profile look, concrete tile roofs generally last for fifty years. A good underlayment, batten system, and proper installation is essential to keeping these roofs strong and durable.
