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
Porch £600 £800 £600 £800 £600 £800

Porch roofs come in a number of styles and configurations, but most who choose to have a tiled or slated roof over their door go for a look that matches the rest of the house. This means that the frame will be slanted to an apex above the door and this design will be felted and then laid with slate or tiling. It will also be fitted with flashing above the door to seal it.

These roofs are usually small and will not cost too much in terms of materials or in labour time. But you should always use an experienced roofer for these jobs to ensure that the roof is built properly and will be long lasting, as well as not causing problems with damp in other parts of your home.

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.
