Spanish concrete tile roofing has been around for centuries.  This roof style can be seen around the globe and offers many advantages, but some disadvantages as well.

Pros

Getting started

Variety – There are several colors, shapes, and textures that can change the look and feel of your home drastically.

Decking to be strong enough

Weight – Individual tiles are heavy and if your roof is not built to hold them additional supports may have to be installed.

 

Cost – This type of roof is more expensive than a regular shingle roof. But, you must take into account that it will likely never need to be replaced again.
