Sourcing old glass roofing tiles
by RogerCreuse • Sat 27 Jul 2019 11:27

Can anyone assist please.

I'm trying to get hold of up to 12 glass roofing tiles to convert an old tiled outhouse to a greenhouse.

The style I'm really after is Jean Delaincourt, Std Migeon. 22.2 x 40.5cm or something with approx dimensions.

I'm based near Aubusson.

Thanks for any help
Roger

Have you already checked Ebay.fr and Le Bon Coin?

I spotted these but not sure if they are the right size?

I know that you are asking for old, but, you can find various patterns of new glass tiles at Leroy's or any other building suppliers.

Thank you Creusebear and LaDolly,

I will certainly investigate the links you sent when I'm back in Creuse next week. That one South of Limoges one looks very promising. No luck with modern tiles yet. Distribution seems regional and these tiles originate from around Alsace/ Doubs area, or even Thonon les Bains. I think.

Think I may have a few old ones , I'll have a hunt tomorrow but, to be honest, i think there will be less than 12.

If you don't get fixed up with 12, looks like i have 7 made by St Gobain, overall dimensions 410 x 245.

Hi rictel, Thanks for your reply , I'm not having much luck with leboncoin. Vendors not responding to messages and phone not being answered/ unavailable. August ? Maybe I could work with the glass tiles you unearthed. Sort of how much would you be looking for , for them? Are you around next week? Roger

Hi Roger,

I have checked & in fact i have 8 tiles , I've looked them over & all are excellent condition with no chips or cracks, made by St Gobain. From the picture of these on Bon Coin I'd say these are identical https://www.leboncoin.fr/equipements_in ... 92015.htm/ . As for price there seems to be some variation as to what people ask between 5 & 10 euros so for the 8 how would €50 sound, i'm bearing in mind we're a fair way from Aubusson.

Cheers, Richard

Many thanks Richard, That sounded good, but I have in fact now managed to obtain 12 via Leboncoin .

I went for those as they were closer to me.

Much appreciated all your your efforts. Roger
