    After much suffering of damp and leakage, it has been diagnosed my tiles have insufficient overlap2-3 inches instead of 4-6 inches, so I need to relay or replace two questions
    1) can you identify the type of tile
    2) these tiles are about 20-30 years old, how long do they last, I will need about 150 to correct overlap, so need to be good for another 20-30 years

    Help appreciated

    The tiles are called Delta's and your best chance of finding them would be at a Roofing Yard but my guess is that they will be quite scarce. It would be far cheaper to just re-lat the roof to adjust the lap.

    Dan living in Scotland you would want maximum overlap which would mean a few more tiles

    Dan scotland.. I have a few good contacts in scotland for getting tiles and slate. I could try and find you Delta tiles.

    I have found them extremely hard to get in the past but have got there in the end..

    Would you like a hand

    Hi Ridgetop, if you can point me in the right direction it would help.
    If they are that scarce, maybe if I buy new roof slates etc, I can sell the Delta's to recoup some of the cost of the new ones, There are about 650 Delta's on the roof.

    I am not working at the moment so tight budget.

    I had calculated 150 (with a few spare) tiles to allow maximum overlap of 6 inches
