What Is The Cost Of Replacing Tile Or A Roof?


Is your roof too shabby, damaged beyond repair or outdated? If it is affected by any of the above cases, the only choice you might have is to replace it with roof tiling. But how much can it cost you to repair it? Would you like to renovate, clean or substitute it?


 Should you mend, clean or restore it?

Many people struggle to find how to remove roof tiles. It is possible to replace tiled roofs if they break or get cracks. You can also clean them in case they have mould or dirt on top of them. Roof tile repair is cheaper than completely replacing the tiles of the roof.

  • Tile roof repairs costs between $25 and $40 in every square metre.
  • Cleaning a tiled roof can cost up to $25. However, there is a minimum fee for minor repairs.

The cost of roof restoration is determined by the intensity of the damage. A difficult job might have a labour cost which is expensive as that of a roof replacement. In this case the cost of tiles might be cheaper.


 What is the cost of replacing a tile roof?


Roof tile repair depends on the following factors:

  • The steepness of your roof
  • Complexity of your roof design
  • Are you in need of both draining and insulation?
  • How hard or easy is it to access your roof?
  • What is the height of your roof?
  • What kind of tiles do you prefer?

For this reason the cost could be between $80-$120 for every square metre to replace your roof. The cost might be higher if your home is two storey with a complicated design and a steep pitch. The cost of replacement involves discarding and elimination of your old roof but ensure they are incorporated in your quote.

Keep the factors outlined above in mind if your want accurate prices of roof tiles online. It is better to give tradies more information in order to get accurate results.

You should note that the prices in this article are estimations and should only be used for guidance purposes. The costs may differ locally and can be affected by market changes.
