    Changing tile colour

    Roofers

    I am replacing my roof and want to use grey tiles instead of the brownish ones I currently have (semi detached property), can I do this?

    "Yes as long as the tiles you use are of similar size and style you can use them without the need for changing the batten or felt providing they are in good order."

    "I do not see why not you cannot do this for. If you will be replacing the whole roof then you can use different size tiles anyway and if you were to replace one or two tiles here and there then the tiles could be cut to size as well."

    "Yes,it's your property,you can have any colour you like.
    Tile bonders will have to be used between your tiles and next door.

    "As it’s semi detached your only worry should be that the battens are solid and that the tradesmen make sure the tiles either interlock with next door or they make the roof watertight between the two properties colour shouldn’t be an issue"
