Roofing costs in Kent
Our roofing costs may vary depending on the type of material, height of building and scope of the project, but the following are some rough estimates.
Please note that it is subject to change depending on the respective properties.
Small roof repairs
This could be a couple of slipped slates or a few broken tiles. Sometimes, a disconnected gutter or damaged pipe joint. The cost of material is usually low and can be easily supplied. For jobs in Kent, we charge between £50 to £80.
Roof repair up to half a day
Many minor repairs fall into this category and may cost between £150 to £200. Low-cost sundries are often supplied free of charge. In some cases, a small job can take as much time as a bigger one, apart from a service.
A day-long (or more) roof repair
Most jobs in this group will cost about £300 per day. Sundries are free, but we charge materials at the market price. Customers can rely on us for transparency and fairness.
Velux window or something related
We repair both large and small roof windows, including tiled roofs. If you have any issues with your roof windows or would like to replace them with slate, our team can deliver in a day.
Bay window roof
Whether you want to replace with lead or fibreglass, our services fall either into a half or full day category. Materials are charged at their cost price and may range from £250 to £400, plus the amount for new milled lead for the newly installed lead roof.
New fibreglass valley or new lead valley
The cost of a new lead valley replacement is usually the same rate as a one-day roof repair as mentioned previously. We will also factor in the costs of supplying new milled lead at trade price. It is less expensive to buy a fibreglass GRP valley, but fitting will cost the same.
Fitting a roof vent
If you would like to fit one or two roof tile vents, it may range between £100 -- £150 (labour cost) plus the cost of the vent, (usually £30 apiece). Working on slate vents take longer and may increase the cost.
Cost of pitched roof replacement in Kent
Assuming you want a complete replacement of your old roof, and you choose the Redland 49 roof tile or something like the Marley Ludlow.
Calculating the covering cost of these tiles, or something similar by other manufacturers will help decide a final price. For example, if the house is a standard two storey building with easy access and not a massive structure, the purchase and installation cost would be reasonable.
Cost of a new roof (estimate)
To determine the cost of a new roof (using a basic terrace house as a model), we first calculate the square meterage. This can be done from the bottom or the top of the building using a ladder. Generally, all roofs can be broken down into a series of sizeable chunks, and the amount can be calculated from the figure of the final square meterage.
Suppose we have calculated the house to need 55m2 of tiles (allowing 3m2) for breakages. With the Redland 49 tiles it works out at 15.7 tiles for each square meter.
This is 15.7 X 55m2 = 864 roof tiles.
Calculating the cost of each tile and the labour, as well as other factors, will determine the overall cost we charge for a replacement.
Cost of a terraced house new roof
The average roof area of a medium sized terrace house = 55m2. Going by this, the cost of a new terraced roof will be about £4,000
The following items needed include:
- Standard grade tanalised roofing battens
- New milled lead valley (+ sundries)
- New milled lead flashings
- Good quality (breather membrane)
- Nails and fittings
- Low profile roof vents (about 4)
- Ridge tiles
- Roof tiles
- A week’s worth of labour
Although this is a hypothetical example, it gives you an idea of how a new roof price is calculated.
Please note that prices change every day and these costs are a hypothetical estimate.
