Hi all

I've noticed a slipped tile on my roof which can be accessed from an adjacent flat roof.

It looks like a nail has come out and it has slipped?

Is it a case of pushing up the above tile, moving the slipped tile into place an putting another nail in or is it likely to be tricky?

Many thanks

Easy, there was no nail. push (slide) up the two tiles above this one. Reposition it and nail. pull down the two you pushed up.

Is it easy to pull them back down? Does it have to be a specific kind of nail? Thanks!

Yes they slide up and down easily enough. Nail with a 50 mm clout or even screw it.
