@manykitties2 - My husband and I really like the look of pantiles too, but they are a bit expensive. We thought we could save money by installing them ourselves, and to be honest, they are a lot harder than they look to put up.
We ended up having to call in a roofer just because the pantiles were too hard for us to tackle on our own. Luckily, our friend knew someone who was able to give us a pretty major discount, so the installation of the pantiles didn't set up back as far as we thought it was going to. I think that you should only try installing pantiles yourself if you have some roofing experience.
