Hi folks .

My neighbor has a roof tile with a large chunk missing from it . She's tried sourcing a replacement, but no luck as they're 50 years old . Even looked on ebay , but not much on there

I think they're made from concrete with a stone speckled finish . Just wondering if it's possible to patch it up , if we can't get a replacement.

Any ideas ?

Thanks for the information , guys . That's a great help . Now we know the name of the tile , we should be able to source them
