    Hello all !!

    sorry if this is a re-post or if the information is somewhere else on the site, i did have a look but i cannot find anything !

    so long story short lots of rain in Burton yesterday and most of it has ended up in my garage ! had a look at the roof and i have 3 cracked tiles they are just where the flashing joins the roof so are half tiles, they have cracked and dropped into the garage i did as good a bodge as i could and rung around a few roofers this morning but they want to know what type of tiles i have ? (roof tiles is apparently not the answer they were looking for ! LOL ) so, is there a website or a dictionary of roof tiles ? or can one of you great internet people have a look at this photo and tell me what they are ?

    need to do the ridge tiles as well as the rain has done for them as well !! :(

    Thanks in advance !!

    Have you looked on the back of the tile?

    Are the tiles single or double roll - a picture of a tile may help

    Put your cammo gear on, blacken yer face and get yer ladders up to The Chase golf clubhouse, there are thousands on the roof there.

    ...alternatively..

    Give Simmons Of Stafford builders merchants a ring.

    Incidentally, Simmo's own The Chase golf club....... :idea:
