Do you notice extreme wear and tear on your roof’s wood shake shingles? Is it time for your local Orange County Roofer to replace them? If this is the case, you might want to consider a known alternative to wood. That alternative is concrete tiles. Believe it or not, this material has the uncanny ability to resemble wood in all its finest details. Even on a close-up inspection, the resemblance is striking. Thus, concrete covers you quite nicely so far as aesthetics go. On top of that, the material offers several distinct advantages over the wooden alternative.
The most obvious of these advantages, as you probably will guess, is durability. The latest assessments show that once installed by an Orange County Roofing Company, concrete tiles can provide exceptional performance for between 50-75 years. Not too shabby.
Not only does concrete do well as time passes, it does equally well as inclement weather stirs up. The material demonstrates particular strength against strong winds, showing exceptional resistance to powerful gusts. Residents of windy canyon areas certainly will appreciate this comforting benefit of concrete tiles.
For the environmentally conscious, concrete offers a planet-friendly plus -- the material is recyclable. This means, you can relax and feel guilt-free when disposal time arrives. Disposing of this and any other material, of course, will be done by your Orange County Roofer.

So I have a home in San Clemente that has wood shingles as a roof. It's seriously old and needs to be replaced. I've been thinking about concrete roof shingles but I've heard they weigh more. Is that an issue for the structure?
