Can old concrete roof tiles seep water through them?

Hi, old concrete can become porous,tiles produced within the last 20 years or so have a far better shelf life.Very bad winters and hot summers do the damage...espicially in winter if ice gets in or underneath the tiles.

Hi, yes concrete tiles will eventually become porous and then possibly crack in the winter.

Yes and they don't even need to be cracked, as moisture can/will penetrate. increase pitch and or new tile's. could try to re-seal if looking to botch it up!!
