When to replace your roof?

Before you have your roof replaced, you should of course make sure that it is really necessary. If you are not a specialist, it is sometimes difficult to determine this. However, there are a number of things you can look out for. When you notice a leak, for example, it is possible that your roofing is no longer functioning properly. In that case, an urgent replacement of your roof is necessary. Each type of roofing also has a lifespan that you should take into account. Do you really want to be sure that your roof needs to be replaced? Then have it examined by a Zoofy roof specialist. When in doubt, don't wait too long, so that you can avoid major costs!

Average costs to replace your roof

The cost of replacing your roof depends on a number of factors, including the roof covering you choose, the type of insulation and the accessibility of the roof. Also, the flat roof replacement cost per square metre is lower than the cost of replacing a roof with a slope. In general, however, you can expect to pay around 75 to 150 euros for a new roof per m². This is only the cost of replacing the roofing material.

If the foundation of your roof needs to be replaced, there are a few other costs besides those for replacing the roofing. In the tables below you will find more information on the exact cost of a new roof per m² and the total price. You will find the costs for replacing a flat roof as well as the prices for replacing a sloping roof.

Pricing factors new roof

The cost of a new roof depends on a number of factors, including the type of roofing and the insulation material. It is important to take these into account if you want to have the best possible view of the exact cost of a new roof per m². Find out the most important price determining factors below!

Type of roofing

The type of roofing material is one of the most important factors in determining the price. There is a big difference in price between the various materials. But also the lifespan strongly depends on the material. For example, a PVC roof will cost you no less than 80 euros per square metre, but it lasts twice as long as bitumen. A more expensive type of roofing is therefore often cheaper. Something to take into account!

Insulation material

When you have your roof replaced, it is a good idea to have insulation material installed at the same time. That way you will save a lot of money. A roof without insulation results in 30% of the heat being lost in your home. On average, you will pay 45 euros per square metre for the installation of insulation material. That is not cheap, but you will usually earn this amount back in about 4 to 6 years. Sometimes you can even apply for a subsidy from the municipality, which means that it will cost you a lot less. It is worthwhile to inform yourself about this!


Extra options

There are a number of other things you can have done when you have your roof replaced. For example, it is possible to have your roof tiles coated to make them more resistant to all kinds of weather.

For this you pay 20 euros per square metre. Do you want a green roof? Then you pay 75 euros per square metre. The installation of solar panels will cost you 560 euro each.


Tips to save money

The costs of replacing your roof are not cheap, but fortunately there are a number of ways to save money. By choosing a professional of Zoofy, you make sure you don't have to pay for call-out charges. It is also possible to renew your roof together with your neighbours. In that case you share the costs of renting the materials and you pay much less.


Do you want to replace your roof yourself or have it done for you?

Replacing your roof is not something you can easily do yourself. Certainly not if you have no knowledge of it. In that case, things can even go wrong, which means that you will have to call in a professional and pay more. Moreover, replacing a roof is never without risk. So by choosing a professional, you can save a lot of trouble and money!
