So, I've got a few broken concrete tiles on my roof.
- They are interlocking.
- There is no offset on each row.
- The broken ones are not nailed
I get it that I need to wedge up the tile the the side to release the overlap/interlocking bit BUT in order to release the broken tile from the batten I also need to wedge the tile directly above it (as there is no offset) - which would mean resting the wedge on the tile I am trying to remove - so I'm not gonna be able to lift the broken tile off the batten cause the tile above is wedged on it.
Now I could wedge the tile next to the one above the broken one (top right of the broken tile) - none of this tile touches the broken one but it would lift the one directly above a bit - but I'm thinking this will snap the tile before I get enough leverage to remove the broken one as it putting all the force on the interlock bit of the one directly above the broken tile - so not sure about that....
Am I missing something cause everywhere I read just says slip in the wedges and off you go???
