A new roof can mean all new roof tiles or slates or it may involve replacing those tiles which are damaged or have little life left in them. Clay tiles and slates can last for 100 years or more and concrete tiles 50 years plus. If the majority of the tiles are still usable then the ones that are damaged can be replaced with reclaimed tiles. Alternatively the older usable tiles / slates can be sold and an all new tile roof can be constructed.
Major factors which contribute to the cost of a new roof are:
- The area of the roof in square meters
- The material used for the roof covering
- Ease of access to the roof – bungalows will cost less as the scaffolding costs will be much lower
- The complexity of the roof – how many valleys, hips and chimneys are there
- The amount of roof tiles that are to be reused – depending on the state of the tiles often 60-80% of the clay tiles on a roof can be reused. A roof with 100% new tiles will cost more.
