Tile roofing remains one of the premier roofing products available. Time tested for hundreds of years in Europe and Asia with different styles and finishes, and of course in Mexico with the popular clay barrel style, roofing tile has proven itself to be a long lasting, attractive and fireproof product. In our area here on the coast, we don't have many tile roofs primarily due to shipping costs, roof costs and the walk-on restrictions inherent to the tiles. Nonetheless, for those who want the thick, textured look of a shake roof without the fire risk, flat concrete tile is a very good choice.

This is an up close view of a light- weight (although still relatively heavy), rough textured, concrete tile. As you can see, it has a look similar to a wood shake roof.
