What are the most important things to consider when replacing or choosing a new roof?

There are 3 key things to consider when choosing a new roof: pitch, planning, and weight.

You need to determine the pitch of your roof to know which products you can use.

The new product you choose must meet planning requirements.

Depending on the material you choose, you may need structural support for your roof.

Noting the weight of your chosen roof covering can help save time and money before you make your final decision.

Can you claim roof replacement on insurance?

Part of your roof can be covered by insurance, but it is rare to get full coverage.

Full coverage is only given in the event that the roof was previously in very good condition before it became damaged.

The cause of the damage must also be included in the insurance policy to give full coverage.

How long does it take to replace a roof?

A roof replacement can take anywhere between 2 days and 2 weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the project.

Weather can also be a deciding factor in the time it takes to complete a project.

How much does roof repair cost?

Depending on the severity of your roof damage, the product you choose, the size and complexity of your roof, the price of your job will vary.

An entire roof replacement can cost anything between £5,000 and £12,000.

How much does it cost to re-felt a roof?

The average price of felt roofing is about £50 per m2. This is just for the felting; the price of labour is around £200 in addition to that.

How can you tell if a roofing job is bad?

Here are some tell-tale signs that your roofing job is bad:

  1. The roof is not even in appearance
  2. There are sagging rooflines
  3. Some tiles or shingles are different in colour
  4. Some tiles or shingles are broken or missing
  5. Roofing materials are not attached correctly or securely
  6. Stains on the roof
  7. Leaks continue

My roof is leaking, do I need a completely new roof?

A leak in your roof does not mean that you need a completely new one fitted. A leak usually happens due to a broken, loose or missing roof tile, which can be easily repaired.

If, however, your roof has completely failed or is unsafe, then you will need a complete re-fitting.
