How much should a new roof cost (based in Scotland)

2 replies 192 views
Hi all,
So I need a new roof. My roof at the moment is slate however is leaking in multiple areas. I have a small one bedroom house but roof wise is prob of similar size to a 3 bed home. It has what I would call a normal roof in that there are 2 sides which meet at the top as in upside down V (I think called a hip joint roof). My question is how much would this cost to replace. I have had one quote at the moment which was £10K to replace with slate tiling. He then said he could do it with flat Marley roof tiles and that this would cost £6300. Does anyone have any thoughts. I was thinking between £5-£6K for a new roof so thought the Marley roof tiles would be okay but am I being silly?
*Just wanted to point out I do have other tradesman coming out to do more quotes just wanted to see if I am looking at the right ball park figure*

    I think a lot depends as well on where you are, for instance, more remote parts or middle of city with nightmares for parking vans, arranging skips etc or just a normal street with no issues.  Always good to shop about, my work colleague recently done his and I think he was about £5-6K with normal wavy style tiles, rather than the flat slates.
    Thanks to all the competition posters.

    Hi Chris, you should expect to pay around £5500 for a new roof in Scotland. The cost of a roof replacement in Scotland will depend on your location, the type of roof covering you choose and whether the structure of your existing roof is in good condition. For more info you could visit
