    Thanks!

    Welcome

    Any of the products designed for concrete, however, what aesthetic vale would be gained by creating a maintenance problem.

    Just finished mine fairly recently, also a tile roof.

    Bought good quality paint.
    Followed the instructions - i.e.: scrub the roof first to get rid of any crud.
    Painted liberally to fill in all cracks.

    So far so good. No doubt there are more professional methods but I wasn't up to selling a kidney to afford them.

    The best way is not to paint it.

    Leave it alone, or prep it with proper etching cleaner and rinse, then use concrete stain.
