Quality control will be an important issue when producing roofing tiles. Micro-concrete roofing tiles will require a great deal of care and precision during entire process of production or sub standard tiles will be produced. The standards for fiber-reinforced tiles can be produced with slightly less rigorous attention to detail, but you still want a good quality tile to make it to roofer who buys them.
Equipment requirements are actually minimal, but should be selected carefully for quality. A tile vibrator machine, moulds, plastic sheets, batching boxes, a water curing tank, and a table to work on are about essentials. Your supplies should include sand, water, and cement. The sand should be of best quality, having a regular grain-size grading. Make sure that grain size is not too silty, as this will provide sub standard tiles.
Once you learn techniques of producing good quality tile, you will be able to market your tile to local roofers and hardware stores. Working on your sales pitch will be important, especially defining benefits of concrete roofing tile. The benefits of concrete tile are easy to explain and should make for a great sales pitch to perspective clientele.
Concrete roof tile production can also lead to concrete roof tile repair. If you have roofing experience, you will be ahead of game. Installing concrete roofing tile is no more difficult than most other roofing materials. Always have extra tiles on hand to be able to assist with repair jobs.
A concrete roof tile business is ideal for someone willing to make educational investment. Most of time involved will be in learning to produce good quality tile. Once you have established your techniques, you should have no trouble in selling your tiles on roofing market!
