    Hi

    I wonder if someone could offer their experience. This pictured tile is what is currently on the existing house. It is 410mm x 310mm in size.

    It is evidently a Marley tile but is it a modern or something else? I guess these are the original tiles from 1975 when the house built.

    What tile can i use on my extension and will the new tile slot into the groove of these old tiles to "carry on" the existing to new extension roof?

    Get reclaimed? I would re-tile the whole roof, which would be the best option, but just got a lack of funds at the minute (only just got enough to get watertight :unsure:)!
