Setting the right budget

How much should you expect to pay?

We know it's difficult to estimate how much a project will cost, that's why we've surveyed our tradesmen to give you an idea of how much you should expect to pay for specific jobs. Tradesmen all across the country have contributed to the cost guides, so the costs you see are an approximate national average.


1 bedroom property 2 bedroom property 3 bedroom property
Low High Low High Low High
Dormer £700 £1,500 £700 £1,500 £700 £1,500
4 bedroom property 5 bedroom property 6 bedroom property

Dormer £900 £1,700 £900 £1,700 £900 £1,700

A dormer roof is one of the most common new roofs that we add to our homes, as these are small roofs that will be used to cover a window that extends up from a loft conversion or extension. A small frame will give the roof an apex much like that on your main roof and this will be tiled over the top with capping tiles or slates.

The roof will also be lined with felt before tiles or slates are laid out and then nailed into place. Flashing will be added all around the new roof to seal the roof and make it watertight. The size of the dormer roof and the materials used will determine the cost of this roofing job, but these roofs are usually fairly small and are therefore not a huge job for a professional roofer.

Rated People asked 41 of our registered roofers across the country to give approximate prices for repairing roofs and for laying new roofs.

Please note these are average costs which vary according to the type of roof, the part of the property and the size of the property. Materials are not included and the cost guides are intended only to help you budget when posting a job on Rated People. For a free quote tailored to your specific requirements, please contact our local roofers.
