How Much Does It Cost For A Slate Roof?

You may be considering a new slate roof or planning to replace an existing one but how much will it cost?

Estimating how much a slate roof will cost without seeing the scope of the job is impossible. There are so many things to factor into the price. For example you may already have a slate roof that is in reasonably good condition and despite some damage, it may be possible just to replace tiles that are broken with new ones to match.

If this is the case then you will need to find out for sure if this is a viable option. If there is simply too much damage and the slates on the roof are in poor condition then you will probably need a full slate roof replacement.

Replacing a slate roof in this case can vary a lot in terms of cost and labour charges. First of all consider the size of slate. The larger the slate, the less time it will take to fit and you may save money on labour as a result. The price of hiring a skilled tradesperson won’t be cheap so this is definitely something to think about.

The cost of slate tiles can vary. Slate tiles are in big demand so you can expect to pay extra for good quality Welsh slate.
