Your roof is one of the most essential parts of your home and getting it worked on can be a minefield.


The average cost of replacing a roof can be hard to calculate due to factors such as location, size of roof and the products used.

Roofing costs differ from roofer to roofer and roofing prices continuously change. Thanks to Checkatrade and their team of estimators, below is a rough price guide for roofing.

Please note the costings below are averages. Factors such as location, the size of the property, the materials used and the amount of time it will take will affect the prices.
