What are Tettogres roof tile benefits’ over concrete alternatives?

  • Tettogres Ceramic Roof Tiles have much lower water absorption (~ 6%) than concrete tiles, which have absorption rates of roughly 13%. The absorption rate greatly impacts the visual appearance of your roof since humidity and rain absorbed by the roof tiles enable formation of mildew and fungus, which consequently require maintenance. Higher absorption rates in concrete tiles compromise the visual aspects of your roof, and its functionality, since they exhibit considerable weight increase with rain, further compounding the naturally heavier material weight.
  • Tettogres Ceramic Roof Tiles are highly impermeable due to the non porous ceramic finish. This enables us to offer you a virtually maintenance-free roof. Concrete tiles, on the other-hand, must be pressure washed frequently to look good.
  • Tettogres Ceramic Roof Tiles are very resistant to cracking and fading due to the high-performance of the minerals we use, as well as our advanced, single-firing baking process. Slurry concrete roof tiles are widely known to crack and fade, due to their higher water absorption rates and exposure to the Sun, weather and and other natural elements.
  • Tettogres Ceramic Roof Tiles weigh much less than concrete tiles. Depending on the tile profile,
    • Concrete tiles weigh about:
      • 820 lbs/square for flat-profile tiles
      • 1,100 lbs/square for spanish-s profile tiles.
    • Tettogres tile counterparts, weigh only:
      • 585 lbs/square for flat-profile tiles
      • 660 lbs/square for spanish-s profile tiles.
    • Tettogres tiles’ reduced weight bears a significantly lower load on your building and roofing structure.__tg-warranty-60-years-150x150
