If you’re thinking of getting the ladder out of the loft and installing or replacing your roof yourself, think again!

Size of your roof 

It’s no surprise that the size of your roof will be one of the biggest factors affecting the price.

Roof sizeAverage cost (in total)
Single garage£900

Materials used

When choosing the right roof material for you, you need to weigh up several factors, including cost, longevity, and aesthetics. If cost is your biggest concern, we’ve put together a handy breakdown of cost variations for different types of material:

Location 

Like with most things, if you live in a bigger city, you’re far more likely to pay higher prices for Roofers in London to cover the cost of the higher price of living. So if you live in the big smoke, you may be looking at up to £6,000 in costs! 

Warning signs you need a new roof

If you want to maintain or increase the value of your home, it’s essential that you keep your roof in tip-top shape. 

Here are some signs that suggest you may need to hire an expert to repair or replace your roof: 

  • Leaking - A leaking roof is the main sign of damage. It suggests that the materials on your roof need to be replaced immediately. If you don’t resolve the issue quickly, it will lead to longer-term, irreversible damage. 

  • Costly energy bills - If your energy bills are creeping up, it could be down to your roof letting energy out of your home. 

  • Shingle granules in the gutter - Shedding shingle granules is a sign that they are suffering from wear and tear damage, and that they made need replacing. 

If your roof is in need of a little TLC, don’t despair! Hire a Roofing Specialist on Bark for a speedy repair.
