Has anyone had a semi re roofed recently, what sort of price are we looking at for re covering in eternite tiles?

Just want a rough idea as we are having quotes done and I would like to know if they compare favourably.

Many thanks

I've only ever had new roofs on terraces (3 bedroomed) and for each of these the cost has always been around 3 grand.

Be careful about replacing a slate roof with tiles. Tiles are heavier so you could need additional work to strengthen the framework to hold it. (you can tell I'm not a builder, can't think of the word for the bits that the tiles are on!!!)

Man made tiles are eternite and lighter and tiles can sometimes be concrete which would cause the timbers to bow timber. Eternite are cheaper or should be.....

We had our midterraced house roof done 3 yrs ago by Martin Brooks roofers for about 4 grand including velux window. Overall very impressed with quality of work (which is probably why they are not the cheapest, but they were also a grand less than our other quote so not the most expensive either!). That price was reusing any good existing slates and using reclaimed slates for the rest. Real slate lasts many years so this is a good option if you want to save a bit of money whilst retaining character of the house. It's also guaranteed for either 10 or 15 years, can't remember which. Hope this helps.

Hi we are having a loft conversion, and we want to replace our roof at the front of the house. At the moment we have a tiled roof, but it is very old. Our house is a mid-terrace. For the extension we are having slate roof.

We have been told that our present roof will last for another 10 years. To change the roof, which is just half of the house, we have been quoted 2.8 grand. Is this a reasonable quote?

Has your semi got a hipped roof or pitched roof. If it is hipped there are a lot more tiles to repalce. This could be where the extra cost is coming from.

Hi all. We're looking at buying a house in Sheffield, but we're pretty sure it will need the slate roof redoing, though much of the slate looks like it could be reusable.

It's a small 2 bed mid-terrace, but with potential difficulty in that it is on a main road, and the pavement looks (to my inexpert eye!) so narrow that the scaffolding would potentially have to be on the road, and also whilst it is only 2 storey at the front of the house it is 4 storeys at the back...

Anybody able to give us a rough ballpark of how much we'd be looking at? Place needs mostly replastering too, so trying to put our costs together!!
