Can concrete tiles go porous

5 Answers

Best Answer

yes they can. over time they will and also with age start to crack.
The life expectancy for a concrete tile roof is marketed as a 50 years. but the under lay and batten system, even if good material and the proper installation procedure was used, it wont last that long and will probably have to be replaced generally around 30 to 40 years.
