How Much Does Roof Tiling Cost?


The appearance of your roof speaks much about your home. An attractive roof gives an impression of beautiful rooms inside that house.

Roofs tiles can make a house look elegant and decent. However, most people believe that roof tile prices are not pocket-friendly. That is not true. Get more information below about this.

Functions of a roof restoration specialist:

When you are free and settled, you can try to find out roof tile prices. You should start by getting the number of square metres of your roof. To get the perfect measurements, multiply the total by 1.1 to represent the roof pitch.

You can then find out the cost of roofing materials that were used.


Things to keep in mind when choosing a tile?


  • Terracotta roof tiles prices can be 25%-100% more than concrete depending on the quality
  • Concrete roof tiles prices are the lowest
  • The most costly material is slate tiling.

It may be tough to distinguish concrete tiling from terracotta or slate because they come in different profiles and colours. You, therefore, need to be keen on concrete before deciding what to purchase.

The standard curved profiles are more affordable than other roofing materials. 

The price of shingle style tiles is closer to that of basic terracotta tiles. Standard curved profiles are less expensive than any other type of roofing material.


Metal roofing vs. Roof tiles

Even though colorbond and other products have increased their popularity due to the belief that they are cheap, concrete tiles are $20 less expensive than these products. Some terracotta tiles are priced competitively together with colorbond or Zincalume. 

You might need colorbond or Zincalume if you live in an area prone to bushfire. This is because their flat sheeting metal material can be fastened against falling ambers better than tiles. 


What are the installation costs of roof tiles?


Roof tile prices include those of removing and getting rid of roofing materials if you might need that. Installation of metal roofing is cheaper than installing roofing tiles because roof tiles need much labor.

 Therefore the cost of roof tiles ranges between $80-$120 per square metre depending on the roofing material of your choice.

Other factors affecting roof tiles costs

  • The roof’s height
  • Design of the roof
  • Roof pitch
  • Incidental costs of labor

A roof with a sophisticated design like hips and valleys can be more costly.

Identify highly regarded roofing professionals in your area and find roof tile prices that fit your budget.

Written by Rafael Niesten

In his early 20s, Perth local Rafael Niesten, won a scholarship to study in Canada, with that came the opportunity to volunteer at a local radio station. That spawned his entrepreneurial streak, returning to Perth in 2001 he set up community radio Groove FM. More by luck than design, they became successful, too successful as they took a significant chunk of the Perth Market. This sent up the red flag with his commercial competitors who saw to it that he came before the Australian Broadcasting Authority and on technicalities such as the number of volunteers he was forced to move on. He received the citizen of the year award for Western Australia (youth) and was a finalist in the Australian of the year awards (Youth). Falling on his sword he turned to running small and large scale events, all the while buying, renovating and selling properties. Buying and selling land and renovated houses provided a grounding in the property industry. He founded a cloud based medical grade voice recognition company, followed by co founding the first true cloud application for private practice in the health sector. He successfully exited these ventures at the end of 2016 and began building Bricks+Agent.
