The Pros and Cons of Concrete Tile

This outdoor staple has become an indoor favorite, especially for floors and countertops.

Concrete is a tough man-made mix of stone, sand, water and cement. It is long-lasting, water-shedding, hail-resistant and can be made to mimic the look of other building materials. It can be a good roofing choice for harsh climates.

Because it requires specialized tools and knowledge, and because you must ensure that the structure being covered can withstand the weight, concrete tile should be installed by trained professionals only.
