Hi everyone! We're back with our 8th episode of V TV in the 8 part series - 

8 Questions You Should Be Asking Before Replacing Your Roof.

These questions we will endeavour to answer are the eight most frequently asked questions we receive from customers who are thinking about replacing their roof. Over 8 weeks we hope to provide you with some valuable information to aid with any concerns you have or any decisions your are looking to make in regards to your roof.

In this episode we tackle another of our most frequently asked questions:

 "How much does a roof replacement cost?"

Key Points

Watch the episode below to find out about :

  • roof installation cost factors,
  • Tips when comparing quotes, and
  • Approximate roofing costs.

Brief Summary

There are many factors that we take into account when quoting a roof replacement. Some of the common ones are:

  • Your existing roof type and size
  • What the access is like on your property (e.g., will a crane be required?)
  • What additional options you may want (e.g., insulation, gutter guard, etc)
  • The complexity of the installation
  • Workplace Health and Safety requirements (e.g., edge protection)

It is also important to know what to look for when comparing quotes. Cross check each item and ensure companies are quoting for the same items to gauge an accurate comparison. The cheapest quote may not have all the inclusions you have asked for!

So how much does a new roof cost? To give you a rough idea, residential roof replacements can vary in price anywhere between $6,000 - $30,000 depending on the size and requirements of the project.
