Japanese style roof tiles?
Does anyone here have any experience, or know someone who does, with Japanese-style roof tiles? I mean like the ones at the link below. We are considering using these (they would really work with the style of roof we have, and the current asphalt roof has about 18 months of life left in it, if that).
I'm wondering, for instance, how expensive they are, how hard it is to find a competent roofer to put them on (since they're unusual), how durable, etc. And any comments on issues I may not have thought of...
