    I have rosemary tiles on my house and my mums,both located in the same district of town,in ex-council houses built in 50s.Is it possible tore-use?Assuming they are in acceptable condition is it economic to do so-I know larger tiles mean fewer battens needed and can nailed on more quickly ie cover more per tile?Finally it a good compromise to rewuse on front elevation,using spares from rear to keep with traditional appearance?

    Thanks in anticipation for your replies

    If there is no sign of flaking then they can be reused. if you do one elevation in new tiles as you say.. I would use the new tiles on the north or east elevation.. Remember also, if you buy reclaimed tiles you will never get a guarantee
