New Roofing Work Prices

Previous - Roof Repair Prices

Laying roof tiles and slates is usually a job for an expert but the range of work being undertaken by DIYers seems to be increasing every year so this type of work is included below.

The extra work involved at the verges, hips and eaves of the roof has been included in the overall costs.

New Slate and Tile Roofs

There are two main types of roof coverings, slates and tiles. The most common slates (but not a common price!) are Welsh Blue roof slates and they are becoming more popular these days. An alternative is reconstituted slates made from slate dust. They are much cheaper but have the same general appearance as standard slates.

The two main types of tiles are concrete and clay. They are similar in appearance but the concrete tiles tend to lose their colour after a few years although this problem is not as bad as it used to be.

Specialist costs are shown for bituminous felt roofing – this is not a job for the amateur!
