This classic style has excellent durability and weather protection for almost any climate. This is not a do-it-yourself project, so you need to hire a professional. The materials you use and the style will affect both the total price and the labour costs. There are a number of factors to consider before making a choice.

Costs for concrete roof tiles
The price for laying or replacing a concrete tile roof varies from €27 to €60 per square metre. This includes €6 to €12 per square metre for materials. Concrete costs €3 to €9 per square metre less than clay, because the ingredients are easier to obtain. If you are looking for a durable roof that is kinder to your budget, this is a reasonable choice. The finished product weighs about 400 kg, which is about two-thirds of other tile options. Because this material is not as water resistant, it can grow mould. It also lasts about 30 to 50 years, much less than terracotta.
Costs of clay tile roof installation/replacement
Laying or replacing a clay roof tile costs €24 to €75 per square metre. The price you pay depends largely on the style you choose. Materials range from €9 to €21 per square foot. Clay is the oldest roofing material. Some regions have buildings with tiles that are thousands of years old. Because it is heavier and more water-resistant than concrete, it costs more. In return, you can enjoy a surface that lasts longer than your house.
Terracotta tile roofing costs
Terracotta roof tiles cost between €30 and €75 per square metre to install. This includes a material cost of €15 to €30 per square metre, which is more expensive than clay. Terracotta is a type of clay in which the manufacturer bakes the colour into the material during the firing process. This leads to an appearance that fades less over time. Homeowners prefer it for warmer areas because it reflects solar heat.
