Repairing peg tile roofs

Hi, my kent red peg tile roof has lost a few tiles in places where
they have cracked off or fallen out completely. How feasible is it to
have single tiles replaced and is it a DIY job? They were broken by
the SKY man btw and I didnt notice for a while :-( Many Thanks.

Go back to the SKY people and insist on them paying for a proper
repair by a roofer.
Unfortunately, v unlikely to happen as I cant prove it as it was a
while ago. I am guessing it was them due to the position of his ladder
and the broken tiles. Thnaks.

Its very possible.

You lift the tile above and slide the new one under it, latching on the
battens.

Nailing is not necessary. Its generally about every third tile anyway..`
few more unnailed ones don't matter.

You do not have to prove it
You need only provide evidence on a balance of probablity
Go to the small claims court

The pleading should be along the lines

It was ok for x years
then came along the Skyman
the damages is exactly in the same location
no damage elsewhere in x years
only noticed after water had chance to penetrate

Sky are most unlikely to defend it if (and only if ) you are sure it
was him and there are no other mudlling opportunities for other
explanations

Go for it - they caused it - they can pay! Stand up for your rights
