Concrete

Concrete-(1).jpgConcrete is the most common material used in the manufacture of roof tiles in Britain.

Regarded as the most economical roofing material, concrete tiles made their first appearance in this country in Canterbury in 1893, but their use grew dramatically during the building boom of the 1950’s. Concrete tiles are highly durable but will loose their colour over time. All of the major roof tile manufacturers offer concrete roof tiles, so ensure to choose a manufacturer who uses a high quality polymer coating to ensure the colours last that little bit longer.

Concrete roof tiles are available in many different shapes, sizes and colours. Primarily plain tiles, double pantiles, double roman and flat or slate appearance tiles
