ENVIRONMENTAL COMPARISON OF CLAY AND CONCRETE ROOF TILES

The concrete roof tile offers numerous advantages: - ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY (product made of cement, sand and water) - LOW PRODUCTION COSTS compared to the clay roof tile - RESISTANCE TO ADVERSE CLIMATIC CONDITIONS. The concrete roof tile is waterproof and resistant to frost. One of the biggest problems experienced with the clay roof tile is its fragile nature in the face of temperature changes (appearance of cracks and fractures). The characteristics of concrete roof tile is as such that it suitable for use in every type of climate extreme without damage. - RESISTANCE TO FIRE - STABILITY in the presence of strong wind - EFFICIENCY OF INSULATING against both the cold and heat extremities due to air circulation - OVER 30 YEARS OF LONG LIFE without changing the aesthetic and technical qualities of the tile - Its LIGHT WEIGHT allows you to use it on the renovation of existing buildings to not only beautify the building but also  increase its economic value. In particular, the reduced environmental impact of the concrete roof tile compared with that of the clay roof tile is one of the issues of the debate on '"green economy" that is being discussed internationally without losing the importance of the quality of the final product. The independent Öko-Institut (ecological institute) in Freiburg, Germany undertaken an environmental comparison of the two main product groups: clay and concrete roof tiles in 2008 stating that, “during its entire lifecycle, a concrete roof tile only causes around 45 per cent of the greenhouse gases triggered by a clay tile.” Concrete is also excellent in terms of energy consumption, the development of fine dust, and a range of other environmental factors.
