    Basically my house is a 2 storey detached - the roof is all marley modern roof tiles but when the house was constructed, none of the tiles were nailed down, they were all just interlocked and then held at each side of the roof by metal clips.

    When the storms came about at the start of the year we lost about 20 tiles including 7 ridge tiles.

    So what is the best plan for nailing the tiles - do they have to be drilled before nailing as I am worried that just nailing them straight off could break them??

    Also do I nail every third tile or what??

    Help is appreciated.

    dont know about your tiles, but once much to my amazement i watched a builder push up every third tile (vertcally) to make steps so he could get up the roof, he said its quite common to be able to do this, he just pulled them back down when finished
