Repositioning a tile

Cost: Difficulty:

A plain tile

Use wooden wedges to lift the two tiles immediately above the tile to be repositioned. Use a trowel to lay the tile on and slip under the wedged tiles, checking that the nibs hook over the batten. If you are successful, there is no need to nail it into position, take out the wedges holding the tiles above. The surrounding tiles will help keep it in place.

A single-lap tile

Use wooden wedges to lift the two tiles immediately above the tile to be repositioned. With single-lap tiles it is also necessary to wedge the tile on the left, next to the one to be replaced. Hold the tile with a trowel and lap in the same way as you slide the tile into position, checking that the nibs hook over the batten. Carefully remove the wedges from surrounding tiles and check that the ridges are seated correctly.
