    Hi, I've got a handful of cracked tiles on a leanto roof. (barrel style tiles). I've bought some replacements and managed to pull out the old and insert the new but i can't quite get the surrounding tiles to sit flush.
    Any tips/suggestions very welcome

    Is the new tile the exact same profile as the others?

    You may need to jig and re-space the adjacent two tiles either side

    thanks for the reply. Yeah i think it's the same. The surface is smoother but the profile looks the same. I've tried jiggling the surrounding tiles but still cant quite get it flush. How crucial is it to be flush?
    Cheers
