Concrete Roof Tiles

Getting stronger over time Concrete Roof Tiles Concrete tiles are made from sand, water, cement and pigments, and are not fired like clay tiles, but cured at temperatures of approximately 60 degrees Celsius. The curing process makes them sturdy enough to be transported and laid within a few days of manufacture, and they get stronger over time. Some of the very ***** concrete tiles, produced back in 1844 at a cement factory in Staudach, Germany, are still on roofs today. The energy-efficient production process and long product life cycle mean that concrete tiles have a comparatively low environmental footprint. Braas Monier’s latest innovation is a concrete roof tile with Aerlox technology. It is just as durable as standard roof tiles but up to 40% lighter. Not only roofers benefit from this light weight tile in their daily ****. Aerlox is also a great alternative for **** owners with a weaker roof construction which is not able to carry the weight of standard concrete tiles.

Frequently Asked Questions I really like tile roofs, but aren’t they very expensive? No. During the past few years, the installed cost of tile roofs has not increased as much as wood shakes and asphalt shingles. As a general rule, concrete tile roofs cost much less than slate, about two times more than wood shakes, and approximately three times more than heavy weight asphalt shingles. Clay roof tiles cost slightly more than concrete. However, both concrete and clay tile outlast most other roofing materials, with manufacturers offering warranties of 50 years or more. In fact, in Asia and Europe, many structures with clay roof tiles have remained not simply intact but also functional and ********* for centuries. Concrete and clay roof tiles are also incredibly durable, withstanding severe weather conditions. Moreover, their superior aesthetics increase the value of any structure. How long do tile roofs really last? We don’t know. Clay tile roofs date back to Neolithic *****, and many ancient structures with clay tile roofs still exist. And, in Europe and Asia, roof tiles have been the primary roofing product for hundreds of years. Both concrete and clay tile roofing systems, when installed properly, withstand weather conditions that begin to deteriorate other roofs the day they are installed. In general, a tile roof – concrete or clay – can reasonably be expected to outlast the building it protects.

Aerlox is also a great alternative for **** owners with a weaker roof construction which is not able to carry the weight of standard concrete tiles.

What about the insulation value of a tile roof? Tile roofs are good insulators. The combined effect of the roof tiles, decking, and the “air space” between the tiles allows for better air circulation and thereby reduces direct heat transfer, resulting in lower air conditioning costs in the summer and a decrease in the formation of ice dams in the winter. Won’t my building have to be a lot stronger and more costly to support a tile roof? Most commercial or quality residential structures require little or no additional bracing. Additional costs, if any, to support tiles are usually an extremely small portion of the total project. I saw a news picture of a **** with a tile roof surrounded by homes burned to the ground. Are homes with tile roofs fireproof? Clay and concrete roof tiles have Class A fire ratings, meaning they are non-combustible. And, both types of roof assemblies maintain their Class A fire ratings throughout their lifecycles. No additional or periodic treatments are required. In addition, buildings with Class A rated tile systems are eligible for the lowest fire insurance rates.
