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.

Low High Low High Low High
Porch £400 £600 £400 £600 £400 £600
4 bedroom property 5 bedroom property 6 bedroom property

Porch £500 £900 £500 £900 £500 £900

Having a flat roof over your front or back door will keep the rain from your door and keep you dry while you fumble for your keys. Slightly angled to let the rain run off, your flat roof will be fitted with flashing where it joins the building, which will stop the rain permeating any joints or gaps. Your roofer will construct the roof to much the same standard as they would use for any flat roof on your home. Although they may choose to use a simpler construction as the porch will not usually be subject to building regulations and you will not have to worry about damp problems (especially on an open porch) in the same way that you would with a roof over an internal room.

Ask your roofer if you are in any doubt. The job should be a simple one for them to carry out and the costs will depend on the size of the roof to be made and whether they first need to remove an old porch roof.

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.
