3 ways to save money on roof repairs

Cut the cost of expensive roof repairs with these three money-saving tips.

Whether you’ve got a few missing roof tiles that need to be replaced, or a roof suffering from nail sickness that requires a complete overhaul, the advice in this blog could help to keep the repair costs down.

Shop around for parts and labour – When shopping for materials or searching for a roofer to complete the job, be sure to do your homework and get several quotes before settling on a price. The internet can be a good place to buy materials cheaply if you know exactly what you’re looking for. You will usually find that you can get a better price and quality of item when you buy from a specialist rather than a general builders’ merchant. When hiring a roofer, make sure that you are getting a reputable tradesperson as well as a good deal. Check out reviews for the tradesperson online and find out if they are registered or accredited with any official trade organisations.

Buy reclaimed roof tiles– Buying reclaimed slate tiles can be considerably cheaper than buying new ones. It is still possible to find reclaimed slate tiles in a wide array of shapes, colours and styles and they can be effective at achieving an authentic appearance. Buying reclaimed is also an environmentally-friendly option.

Use a roofing salvage service–If you are having your roof replaced, you can save money by using a slate salvage service. Whilst demolishing your roof, as much slate as possible will be salvaged and then you can either reuse these tiles or receive a fair price for them to be used against the cost of your new roof.
