Cost of re-bedding roof tiles.

Hi folks,

What would be the expected cost (N Ireland area, so probably not London prices) of getting 3-5 roof tiles re-bedded ie, old cement cleaned up and tiles cemented back again?

I think one ridge tile over triangular small roof over main doorway is cracked. Semi detached bungalow, so shouldn't be any problems getting access to roof.

After this was brought to my attention I would like your opinion, is it a simple enough thing to do for a good handyman, rather than a roofer who might charge more, is it just a matter of clearing away old cement and re-bedding the tiles in new concrete

I don't know a lot about this, but I am inclined to think it might be a two to three hour job at most, would you agree and the cost should be no more than £150-£200?

Thank you for any info.

    Do they need scaffolding to work or will they get away safely with ladders ,will make a big difference to the price.

    It doesn't sound as if it would be more than a one day job.  Don't forget you will also be paying for travel time, not just the time at the job.  If the tiles are damaged it may take longer as replacements would have to be obtained etc.  Some tradesmen will charge by the hour, others by the day or half day.
  • Thanks no scaffolding required.
