Cement Tiles Provide Natural Beauty and High Durability

Developed in 1824 by Joseph Aspdin, cement roof tile is made of a mixture of concrete, mortar, and plaster. Cement roof tile is used for roofs all over the United States, yet it is most popular in the Southern States where strong weather resistance is required. Cement roof tile is so durable that many roofs sheathed with cement roof tile have lasted for over a hundred years. Cement roof tile is extruded under high pressure to make a tough, dense tile that increases tensile strength. As a result, your roof can withstand your weight when moving around on it Ė whether itís regular maintenance or hanging up Christmas lights. Additionally, cement roof tile can be manufactured in a smooth and contemporary look, or rough for a rustic shake or Chateau appearance. They can also be purchased with special coatings that prevent cement roof tile color fading. With over 300 colors to choose from, the cement roof tile offers a lifetime of natural beauty for your home or office.
