New Roof Cost

I’m asked all the time:

“How much does a new roof cost?”

 “What’s the price of a new roof?”

If only it was that simple!

Estimating the cost of a new roof gets harder the more detail you need, for example:

Q: I have  a roof that’s 20m². How much will a new roof cost?

  • New roof using mineral felt will cost around £45/m² in and around London.

  • New roof using EPDM will cost around £50/m² in and around London.

  • New roof using Kemper will cost around £65/m² in and around London.

  • New roof using Liquid Plastic will cost around £75/m² in and around London.

However it’s not that easy.

  • Is scaffolding needed?

  • Will the old flat roof have to be stripped before we lay the new flat roof?

  • Do you need to insulate the roof?

  • Do we need to cover with a temporary tin roof to keep the weather out whilst we undertake the work?

  • Do you want to walk on the new roof after it has been laid?

  • What type of walkable surface do you want on the new roof?

All of these questions need to be asked before you can even choose the roof covering, let alone put a cost to the project.

For further help please don’t hesitate to give me a call.

By the way, I will soon have a Roofing Cost Estimator on this site. You will be able to enter the size of your roof and choose the materials, and it will give you a good idea of the cost of a new roof.

    I feel your pain! It can be pretty difficult to generically estimate the costs of a new roof as there are so many variables. Roofs come in many different sizes and shapes and are built using different materials, roofing costs can vary significantly and can even depend on economic pressures arise in your area. I’m sure many people will be thankful for your Roofing Cost Estimator for that very reason!
