    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 ?

    Martin Edwards at bamber bridge, just outside Preston has a large stock of old tiles. If you go take one with you.
