Concrete roof tiles are a durable water-shedding material that most often last the lifetime of a building. Concrete roof tiles simulate the appearance of traditional clay tiles, wood shake, slate, and stone. Like clay, concrete tile surfaces can be textured or smooth, and tile edges can be uniform or ragged. Architects may select tiles of all one color, blended colors, or combinations of two or more shades placed in a uniform or random pattern. Regular portland cement is gray, but is also available in white. Pigments can be blended with either white or gray cement to allow for virtually any desired color, including bright whites, pastels, and deep rich shades.
