In addition they have a small workshop for tiles out of micro-cement and micro-concrete, using the bi-vibrator. The person who runs the tile shop is named Bartolome Sunuc. They have been making the concrete tiles for many years. The process includes making cement and sand tiles, molding the piece for 24 hours to dry, and then setting them in the water for 10 to 15 days. Concrete is more durable than zinc roofing, it does not rust and can be painted to customize the tiles.
