Price for replacing roof
We had a couple of leaks through our tiled roof. A roofing (limited) company would not give a quote before starting the job, saying they needed to see what the roofing felt etc was like and needed to removed areas of tiles to find out.
They quoted us £15,000 to do the job, but they had already removed several areas of tiles and started replacing battens before giving me the price, so I was not able to dispute it at that stage. I negotiated the price down to £14,250, and they made me sign a “quotation” at this price.
The bungalow is detached with a roof area of about 250 sq m with 2 dormer windows (one an “eyebrow” shape). That works out at about £57 per sq m. It includes removing moss, re-using existing tiles (mostly), new felt, spraying with fungicide and removing the ridge.
Am I being ripped off or is this a reasonable price for work in Surrey?
They reckon 7-8 days work for 4 guys. I think I should see the price separated into labour and materials.
