Concrete: In The Making

The exact materials vary because of different manufacturers but the basic component of this tile is Portland cement, blended hydraulic cements, sand, fly ash, and other added combinations. Concrete tiles also look similar in terms of size, shapes, and colors even when made by different manufacturers. They have three main appearances common to all – flat, low, and high profiles. Flat concrete roof tiles, as its name suggests, are flat when viewed from the lateral side and have no curves. Low concrete roof tiles, on the other hand, have small curves with a 1:5 rise to width ratio or less. High profile concrete tiles have larger curves that exceed the 1:5 rise to width ratio. There are also many other shapes available now: Imbrex and tegula, Roman tiles, Pantiles, Mission, Barren tiles, and Antefixes.
