    Are these considered decent enough in the industry? I'm toying between the Anglia Single Pantile and the Double Roman, are either of these considered better or worse than the other in terms of longevity/robustness or is it six and half a dozen?

    EDIT: Have just looked at Trustpilot, not loads of reviews however most of them say the tiles are rubbish.

    They are not rubbish.
    Of the two for DIY bod I would say go for the double Roman.
    Or if you can , Redland 50

    Marley manufacture the tiles for half the roofs in the country and are industry leaders, certainly not rubbish but inferior to slate or clay tiles.

    There is a massive shortage of tiles at the moment (in Lancashire anyway) so it maybe the same where you are?

    Yeah I'm sure those commentators know all about tiles.

    Who actually reviews tiles anyway?
