Your questions about roofers, answered

How much do roofers charge in the UK?

On average, the hourly rate for a roofer in the UK is around £25 - £35 per hour.

However, this rate can go up or down depending on the roofer’s level of skill.

It also depends on the size, complexity, and location of the job. For example, London roofers are a *touch* pricier!

Average roofing costs for some of the most popular jobs

For larger roofing jobs, such as installing a new roof or replacing an old one, the cost can range from £1,500 to £12,000+.

Again, this depends on the size of your roof and the materials used.

That’s why it’s important you ask for multiple quotes from different roofers before making a decision, as this can help you get a better idea of the average cost in your area.

Note… When it comes to roofing, quality is key. While it may be tempting to choose the cheapest option available, this can sometimes result in poor workmanship and more expenses in the long run.

So, it’s important to find a roofer who offers a fair price but also has the necessary experience and expertise to get the job done right.

What’s the hourly rate for a roofer?

Well, that depends on where you live and the roofer’s experience. However, it’s usually around £25 - £35 per hour.

How long does a new roof take to install?

It depends on the size and complexity of the job. However, as a general guide:

  • A small to medium-sized roof – for example, those seen on a typical semi-detached house – typically takes around 1 – 3 days to install
  • A larger or more complex roof, such as one with multiple gables, dormers, or valleys, takes around 3 – 5 days and upwards to install

NB: If there are any unforeseen issues or complications, such as structural damage or the need for additional repairs, the installation time may take longer.

How many roof tiles do I need per square metre?

It depends on the size and shape of the tiles and the area you need to cover. However, as a general rule:

  • Standard-size tiles, such as concrete tiles, need around 60 tiles per square metre for an average-sized roof
  • Larger tiles, such as clay tiles, need around 45 tiles per square metre for an average-sized roof
  • Smaller tiles, such as plain slate tiles, need around 100 tiles per square metre for an average-sized roof

NB: Your professional roofer will be able to give you an accurate estimate for the number of tiles required for your roof and the length of time it will take.

How to find out if a roofing company is licensed?

Ask to see their license! And if you’re feeling extra detective-y, do some research online and make sure their license is up-to-date.

You can do this by checking online databases for your chosen contractor’s details.

NFRC is an official roofing trade organisation. You’ve also got GOV.UK for their VAT details, and Checkatrade for our vetted checks.

You can also ask for a copy of their liability insurance and workers’ compensation insurance to ensure that they are fully insured.
