although expensive and heavy, it is perhaps to be expected from a roofing material that can last 100 years. Traditionally, most roofing tiles were made from slate or a fired clay or terra cotta product, but today's roofing tiles are very often made from molded, tinted concrete.
Roof tiles are still popular for roofing. They are available in concrete and in clay. Depending on your personal preference and budget, you choose one or the other. Moreover, they are available in different shapes. The shape you opt for depends on the angle of inclination and the desirable sight. The roof tile is an excellent choice if you are looking for cheap roofing materials!
