What is Concrete Tile?

Onur Roof Tile

Do you want a low cost tile roof?

Aesthetic appearance, long-lasting and economical roof tiles were used in the early 19th century in the Bavarian region of Germany to create the first concrete roof tile with a mixture of cement, sand and water. Many houses built with these first concrete roof tiles are still in use and prove their durability. In the early 19th century, colored concrete roof tiles were produced using paint pigment to simulate clay tiles. Although the first concrete roof tiles were produced with manual and semi-automatic machines, they created a life cycle. Currently, the colorful concrete roof tiles we produce are made with fully automatic machines without touching them, and because of the lower error rate, longer life is obtained.

What are the advantages of concrete tiles?

Concrete tiles often prolong the life of a house. Concrete tile has a certain life. However, the difference from other roofing materials is easy to be repaired, transferable, such as the application to other projects of dismantling. It is more resistant to heavy rainfall and wind because of its 1 closure area. It is a class A fire resistant fireproof material. It can be produced in desired colors.

Concrete tile prices and lifetime comparison.

Concrete tile prices are among the roofing materials what is an economically priced roofing material.

Membrane and shingle-type materials made of asphalt raw materials are both short-lived and difficult to repair. Except for water insulation, it has no resistance to heat and impacts. They deform quickly.

Metal roofing materials are high in raw material costs and are not a long-lasting material, difficult to repair, no thermal insulation.

The price of polymer tiles is high. It is a material with very low sun resistance and high flammability in fire.

Clay tile has the same life and properties as concrete tile. The weight of 1 m² is the same weight as the concrete tile. Clay tiles have 16 tiles per 1 m² and concrete tiles have 10 tiles per 1 m². Concrete tile has 1 closing area more than clay tile and it is faster and easier to apply. Concrete tile has a heavier material bias among the public. Roofers and dealer dealers make weight comparisons with 1 clay tile and 1 concrete tile. However, they should not forget that the clay and concrete roof tiles are not the same. The biggest advantage that separates concrete roof tiles from clay roof tiles is that they are produced with fewer workers in a fully automatic plant and cost more at economical prices. Because of this feature, concrete tile is one step ahead of the market share of clay tile.

Is concrete roof tile heavy?

There is a heavier material bias among the concrete roof tile public. Roofers and dealers make weight comparisons with 1 clay tile and 1 concrete tile. However, they should not forget that the 1 closure areas of clay tile and concrete tile are not the same. While 1 concrete tile is 0.1 m² ~ 4.40 kg (44.00 kg), the approximate weight of 1 clay tile is 0.066 m² ~ 3.10 kg (46.50 kg). When comparing the closure area and weight, the difference is more understandable.
